Novena to Saint Jude


Hi All,

I’m sure you’ve heard this before but I just would like to remind you. Whenever I’ve had problems in life, I prayed a Novena to Saint Jude. It has always worked for me. I can only suggest to those of you who are going through a rough time right now, pray to Saint Jude. He will hear you and help you. Keep him in your prayers always. Here is the Novena:

Novena to St. Jude
Say once a day for 9 days, especially beginning on 20 October and ending on 28 October, the eve of the Feast of St. Jude. When the Novena is finished, you must publicly thank St. Jude for his prayers for you. This is often done by taking out a small ad in the Classifieds section of newspapers.

To Saint Jude, Holy Saint Jude, Apostle and Martyr, great in virtue and rich in miracles, near kinsman of Jesus Christ, faithful intercessor of all who invoke thy special patronage in time of need. To thee I have recourse from the depths of my heart and humbly beg to whom God has given such great power to come to my assistance. Help me in my present and urgent petition, in return I promise to make thy name known and cause thee to be invoked. Saint Jude pray for us and all who invoke thy aid. Amen.

Recite an Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory Be three times. Keep your promise to St. Jude and make his name known.

Take care and God Bless!
