The front has an image of St. Jude and the writing “This Novena must be said 6 times each day for 9 consecutive days. Please leave 9 copies in church each day. Your prayer will be answered before the 9th day. This has never been known to fail.”
So I think a parishioner left it today.
First…has it actually never been known to fail, or is it an unapproved personal revelation promise?
Someone must be very distressed about some issue and is praying to St. Jude for intercession.
Second, one of the lines says, “Humbly I prostrate myself before you.”
Isn’t prostration a sign of worship and meant for God alone…? Am I missing something…? I hope so…
