Novena To St.Jude

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, And of the Holy Spirit.

Blessed be the Holy and Undivided Trinity now and forever.

We fly to your patronage, O Holy Mother Of God. Despise not our petition in our necessities,
but  deliver us  from  all  dangers, O ever Glorious and Blessed Virgin.


Prayer 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  honours  and  invokes you  universally as  the patron of hopeless cases of  things despaired of. O' St. Jude, pray  for  me who am so miserable; make use,  I  implore  you  of  that  particular privilege accorded to you to  bring  visible  and  speedy  help, where  help  is  almost  despaired of. Come  to  my assistance  in  this great  need  that I  may receive consolation  and  encouragement  of  Heaven  in  all  my necessities, tribulations  and  sufferings  and that I may thank God along with you and all the saints forever. I promise you, O blessed St.Jude to be ever mindful of this great favour and I will never cease to honour you as my special and powerful patron & to do all  in my power to encourage devotion to you.



Prayer in Times of Emergency

O' St.Jude, the friend  and relative of Jesus, Our Lord and Saviour, the trusted  patron  of  the devotees, the powerful  protector of the suffering, glorious martyr adorned with rare virtues and miraculous power, gentle  apostle, relying on your extraordinary  power  of  coming to the help of the helpless, I turn to you with confidence ( here mention your need ). I  most  humbly entreat you to help me, for I am unable to do anything worth by myself. I promise that I will  honor  you  as  my  special  patron and powerful protector throughout my life and that I will do everything possible within my ability to spread your devotion among others. I sadly realize the fact that because of the resemblance of your holy name with that of the traitor, Judas Iscariot, you are not properly  loved  and venerated by many. But still thousands around the world accept you as their powerful helper in their most desperate needs and hopeless cases.

O St.Jude,grant me peace and solace; hasten to help me in  my dire needs; and above all procure for me the grace of  final  perseverence with  which I may  join you and with  multitude of the elected to sing the praises of God for all eternity.



Prayer for Impossible things

O' St.Jude, the close relative of the Holy Family, beloved  son of  the Holy Trinity, prompt succour of the devotees, unfailing supporter of the desperate, I turn to you for help with confidence. Make haste to help me. Remember, O powerful Apostle, that God has adorned you with the rare gift of coming to the help of the  most abandoned and  the desperate cases. Turn your eyes of  pity  and love towards me. My life has become a continous 'way of the cross', and my days have become sorrowful, my heart has become a deep ocean of tears and all the paths of life, I see full of thorns. There is hardly every moment in my life which does not give me pain and agony. I have reached the verge of utter despair, my heart  is numb within me. Fear and anxiety  have filled  my heart. I now approach you  in  deep agony and  I will not leave you until you come downto help me.

O! Powerful Apostle! hasten to come to my aid.

Help me to proclaim your goodness and power and to sing your praises. I promise that all the days of my life here on earth, I  will  ever sing  your wondrous deep  until  I  join you to sing  unceasingly the infinite mercy of God in Heaven.



Praise and Thanksgiving

O' most sweet Lord Jesus Christ in union with the unutterable heavenly praise with which the most Holy Trinity extols itself  and which thence flows upon your sacred  humanity, upon Mary, upon all the angels and saints I praise, glorify and  bless you for all the graces and privelages you have bestowed upon your and the  intimate  friend, Jude Thaddeus; I pray to you for  the sake of  His merits, grant  me your grace and  through  his  intercession, come to my aid  in  all  my needs, but  especially  at the hour of my death strenghten me.
