Default I'm not too sure how to use the St. Jude novena properly?

Hello everyone!

This is my first time being on this site, so I'm sorry if i posted this on the wrong section of the forum.

I've been looking for the perfect job for three years and counting, and just recently, my mother have been having problem paying the rent, and she owned 2 1/2 worth of rent. I'm really frightened of the chances that the landlord taking her to court.

I've came upon a archive on the internet about the successes of the St. Jude's novena. I didn't knew it was very powerful and popular. I'm thinking to stick with this novena, simply because there so many who says that this is a novena that "never fails".

However, I found that there are so many ways that people are telling me that you got to pray it in a certain way, for a certain number of repetition, and you have to also makes copies or publish the novena??

So I ask you what are the proper steps in praying the St. Jude novena?

Thank you, Love and light.

If it's the one that asks you to make nine copies of it every day for nine days, this is a false novena - do not attempt to use it; it's very bad, and things will only get worse for you.

I would recommend instead to pray the Memorare, and to pray directly to St. Jude in your own heartfelt words, without making copies of anything, and without any kind of "magic" formula. I will also keep you in my prayers.

jmcrae, Thank you very much for praying for me. I really mean it..

I'll have to go research the "Memorare", because unfortunately, I never heard of such prayers.

Yet, still, Should I just pray the Memorare, then to St, Jude just once or everyday until I received a answer?

Thank you, love and light.

Yes, pray every day, first thing in the morning. Pray for God's will to be done, which will be something good, although probably something unexpected - don't pin your hopes on a specific outcome, but trust that God will take good care of you, no matter what happens.

I pray that you will find good work soon and that your mother gets the financial help she deperately needs. May you pray your own personal novena to St. Jude and none that requires you to make copies, etc.. Praying that you and your mother will keep strong in faith, hope and love and will keep persevering. Amen.

Since I'm not suppose to be counting down my days for praying, this is my 5th day praying to St. Jude, and Virgin Mary. I'm trying my best to pray with all my heart, with my full honestly about the situation that's happening, just trying to have faith that St. Jude will answer my prayer, but its very difficult..

Your family will be in my prayers. The Memorare is a beautiful prayer. I have prayed it often and frequently over the last few months. Mother Teresa used this prayer as an "emergency" novena by praying it nine times. In my lowest moments I have done so also. It has helped me in many ways.

Try this novena to St. Jude.

When looking for a good novena, try going to EWTN's website and look at their selection; it's very theologically sound and they have some great prayers. Hope this helps, and I'll keep you in my prayers!

P.S. Also, for an amazing novena, try Fr. Lovasik's "Novena of Holy Communions" - I think it costs about $2.50, but it was the most worthwhile investment I've ever made. For growing closer to Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament, it can't be beat.

PATER NOSTER,
qui es in caelis,
sanctificetur nomen tuum.
Adveniat regnum tuum.
Fiat voluntas tua, sicut in caelo et in terra.
Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie,
et dimitte nobis debita nostra
sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris.
Et ne nos inducas in tentationem,
sed libera nos a malo. Amen.

Ojcze Nasz, któryś jest w niebiesiech,
święć się imię twoje;
przyjdż królestwo twoje,
bądż wola twoja,
jako w niebie tak i na ziemi.
Chleba naszego powszedniego daj nam dzisiaj,
i odpuść nam nasze winy,
jako i my odpuszczamy naszym winowajcom.
I nie wódż nas w pokuszenie,
ale nas zbaw ode złego
Amen.

I just got told today about the publications novena being false. I thought it seemed slightly real since the Claretians run it unless the Claretians are false too. I have prayed it before without publishing it and have not had my prayers answered (I was and still am praying for a job). Would someone really point me in the right direction.
