Happy Feast Day, St. Jude!
Today I celebrate the Feast of St. Jude, who carried Jesus image and message to all those seeking hope and healing. On this special day, I give you ample thanks and reflect upon you. I honor you, miraculous saint, for providing me hope when in despair and for continually assisting me in times of trial and tribulation. Please continue to be with us always so we may face our problems with courage and serenity.
I receive the gifts of God with a grateful spirit. St. Jude, help me to see the blessings that surround me and give me life. I offer you my prayer of thanksgiving. Give me the grace to be forever thankful for Gods love and mercy, and the gift of life each day. May this gratitude inspire me to give generously of myself to others”in my actions, in my prayers, and in my fortune however small that may be. Be with me now, St. Jude. Linger with me in gratitude, and let thanks fill my heart, washing away my pains and troubles. May I desire nothing except to be in Gods presence, and to learn from you to be an example of hope, love, and thanksgiving to everyone I meet. Amen.
