ST. JUDE-for Cases Despaired of


St. Judas Thaddeus was a distant relative of our Lord Jesus Christ, and he is often shown holding a medal, which has our Lord’s Likeness on it.  Very few, if any, Catholics asked St. Judas/Jude Thaddeus to pray for them after his Martyrdom, because his first name was the same as the traitor, judas iscariot’s.  When people finally started asking him for help, they were greatly astonished to find that he helped in impossible cases.  This is probably why Danny Thomas named his hospital for children after St. Jude.  Don’t just pray to St. Jude for his Feast, pray to him often.  He also wrote one of the letters in the New Testament.  Remember, when you pray Novena prayers, you can always make up your own.

Prayer to Saint Judas Thaddeus

(to be said for cases despaired of)

St. Jude, Glorious Apostle, faithful Servant and Friend of Jesus, the name of traitor has caused Thee to be forgotten by many.  But The Church honors and invokes Thee universally
as the Patron of hopeless causes, and of things despaired of.  Pray for me, who am so miserable.  Make use, I implore Thee, of that particular privilege accorded Thee, to bring visible and speedy help, where help was almost despaired of.  Come to my assistance in this grea
t need, that I may receive consolation and succor of Heaven, in all of my necessities, tribulations, and sufferings, particularly (here mention your request/s) and that I may bless God with Thee and all of the Elect, throughout all eternity.

St. Jude, Apostle, Martyr, and Relative of our Lord Jesus Christ, of Mary, and of Joseph, intercede for us!
