ST. JUDE THADDEUS
(Feast Day Oct. 28)
St. Jude : A common Roman Catholic prayer is:
Oh, most holy apostle, St. Jude Thaddeus, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor has caused you to be forgotten by many. But the Church honors and invokes you universally as the patron of hopeless cases, of things almost despaired of. Pray for me, I am so helpless and alone. Make use, I implore you, of that particular privilege given 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 the consolation and help of heaven in all my necessities, tribulations, and sufferings, particularly ?
(Here make your ardent request)
and that I may praise God with you and all the saints forever. I promise, Oh, blessed St. Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor, to always honor you as my special and powerful patron, and to gratefully encourage devotion to you. Amen.
“May the sacred heart of Jesus be loved, honored and preserved
throughout the world now and forever.
St. Jude, worker of miracles, pray for me.
St Jude, helper of the hopeless, pray for me.”
(Say this prayer 9 times a day.
This prayer has never been known to fail.)
Oh, Glorious St. Jude, You were called to be one of Christ?s chosen apostles.
In especially needful and despairing cases, You are honored among the Saints. Be with me and help me to see God?s purpose in all my trials knowing that every sincere prayer will be answered in some way, Amen.
SAY: 3 Our Father’s, 3 Hail Mary’s and 3 Glory Be’s. ST. JUDE THADDEUS, HAVE MERCY ON US!
(To encourage devotion to St. Jude, it is common to acknowledge in writing favors you received. You must thank Him after you received your request)
LOVE & prayers,
Almighty Father, I humbly pray as I beg for Your love and mercy. Lord, forgive us our sins as I acknowledge that I am nothing without You because by Your Holy Cross, You have redeemed the world.
Mama Mary, intercede for us as I lift up to You my family, my love ones, my friends, my enemies, my detractors. I lift up to You the souls of my love ones (say names of departed loved-ones) as I asked them to pray for us. I lift up to You all the poor souls in purgatory. I lift to You all the people I promised to pray for, especially those who are sick, I lift up to You my personal intentions especially these ones?(say your intentions), as I believe in faith, You only have to say the word and my wishes shall be granted.
Empower me with the gifts of the Holy Spirit. Guide me in all my thoughts, words and actions. Anoint me Lord, grant me the power to do Your will that everything will be for Your greater glory.
In the mighty name of Jesus, I command satan and all the evil spirits to get out of our bodies because our bodies are the temples of the Holy Spirit. In the mighty name of Jesus, I tie you satan and I throw you at the foot of the Cross so that you?ll be forever vanquished from the face of the earth. Yes, Mama Mary I asked to step on the head of the serpent and forever crush him. This I ask in the mighty name of Jesus through the powerful intercession of Mama Mary.
Never forsake us Lord, as I ask You to shield us with Your most precious blood that flows from Your Sacred Heart. Mama Mary I consecrate my family to Your immaculate heart. Embrace us, cover me and my family with Your motherly mantle of love & protection, Amen.
