For Help in Trials

Most holy apostle St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor who delivered your beloved Master into the hands of His enemies has caused you to be forgotten by many. But the Church honors and invokes you universally as the patron of hopeless cases–of things despaired of. Pray for me who feels so hopeless. Make use, I implore you, of that particular privilege accorded to you of bringing visible and speedy help where help is almost despaired of. Come to my assistance in this great need, that I may receive the consolations and succor of heaven in all my necessities, tribulations and sufferings, in particular YEARNING4TRUTH, and that I may bless God with you and all the elect throughout eternity. I promise you, O Blessed St. Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor, and I will never cease to honor you as my special and powerful patron, and to do all in my power to encourage devotion to you. Amen.

Sincere Prayers:
Our Father who art in heaven…
Hail Mary, full of grace…
Hail Mary, full of grace…
Hail Mary, full of grace…
Glory Be to the Father…

[INDENT]Prayer for the Virtue of Chastity

Jesus, Fortress of mankind, bless me with Your
infinite graces, that I may remain in a state
of purity. Strengthen my body, spirit, and soul
to continually reflect Your chastity. Protect
my soul in its daily struggles, guiding it
to ponder on Your Godliness. Defend
me from the forces of evil, those that seek
to acquire my soul: I am truly Yours forever
and ever. Holy is my King, the Conqueror of sin!

:signofcross:

[/INDENT]

He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy.
-Proverbs 28:13

Our Father,
Who art in heaven,
hallowed be Thy name;
Thy kingdom come;
Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread;
and forgive us our trespasses
as we forgive those who trespass against us;
and lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Praying…

At my last confession, the priest told me that lust will always be there. I guess it’s a consequence of a fallen world, kind of like our concupiscence maybe. From experience, though, I can say that all sin is easier to control the more often I receive Reconciliation and Eucharist. I think prayer and works of charity help too, but I do those for lots of different reasons, so IDK. Either way:

St. Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray,
and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God,
thrust into hell Satan,
and all the evil spirits,
who prowl about the world
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

Sincerest Prayers:
Our Father who art in heaven…
Hail Mary, full of grace… Hail Mary, full of grace… Hail Mary, full of grace…
Glory Be to the Father…
Amen…
