PRAYERS, NOVENAS & LITANY TO ST JUDE THADDEUS

(PATRON SAINT OF DESPERATE CAUSES)

God has granted to St Jude extraordinary powers in cases where others seem to have failed, and it is especially in difficult cases that his wonderful help is experienced. Thousands daily invoke his aid, and many have seen their prayers answered in a miraculous manner, even when to all human calculation the petition seemed hopeless. Though it be sickness, poverty, misery, distress of heart and soul, even despair, go to this great Saint and let him find the solution for your difficulty.

PRAYER FOR A SPECIAL FAVOUR
(May be used as a Novena - that is, prayed every day for nine consecutive days.)

O glorious Apostle St Jude Thaddeus, true lover of Jesus and Mary, I greet thee through the Sacred Heart of Jesus.  Through this Heart I praise and thank God for all the graces He has bestowed upon thee.  Humbly prostrate before thee, I implore thee, through this Heart, to look down upon me with compassion.  Despise not my poor prayers; let not my trust be confounded; to thee God has granted the privilege of aiding mankind in the most desperate cases.  O come to my aid, that I may praise the mercies of God!  All my life I will be grateful to thee and will be thy faithful client, until I can thank thee in Heaven.  Amen.

PRAYER IN GRIEVOUS AFFLICTION

St Jude Thaddeus, relative of Jesus and Mary, glorious Apostle and martyr, renowned for thy virtues and miracles, faithful and prompt intercessor for all who honour thee and trust in thee, powerful patron and helper in grievous affliction, I come to thee and entreat thee with all my heart to come to my aid, for thou has received from God the privilege of assisting with manifest help those who almost despair!  Look down upon me:  my life is a life of crosses, my days are full of tribulation, and my paths are strewn with thorns - and scarcely one moment passes but is witness of my tears and sighs.  My soul is enveloped in darkness, disquietude, discouragement, mistrust - yes, sometimes even a kind of despair preys upon me.  Divine Providence seems lost to my sight, and faith seems to falter in my heart.  Overwhelmed by these thoughts, I see myself surrounded by a dark cloud.  Thou canst not forsake me in this sad plight!  I will not depart from thee until thou hast heard me.  Oh, hasten to my aid!  I will thank God for the graces bestowed upon thee, and will propagate thine honour according to my power.  Amen.

PRAYER OF PRAISE AND THANKSGIVING

O most sweet Lord Jesus Christ, in union with the unutterable praise with which the Most Holy Trinity extols Itself and which thence flows upon Thy Sacred Humanity, upon Mary, upon all the Angels and Saints, I praise, glorify and bless Thee for all the graces and privileges Thou hast bestowed upon Thy chosen Apostle and intimate friend, St Jude Thaddeus.  I implore Thee, for the sake of his merits, to grant me Thy grace, and through his intercession to come to my aid in all my needs.  Especially at the hour of my death, deign to strengthen me against the rage of my enemies.  Amen.

PERPETUAL NOVENA IN HONOUR OF ST JUDE

St Jude, glorious Apostle, faithful servant and friend of Jesus! the name of the traitor has caused thee to be forgotten by many, but the Church honours and invokes thee universally as the patron of hopeless cases - of matters despaired of.  Pray for me who am so miserable; make use, I implore thee, of that particular privilege accorded to thee, 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 consolations and succour of Heaven in all my necessities, tribulations and sufferings, particularly (here make your request) and that I may bless God with thee and all the elect throughout eternity.

I promise thee, O blessed Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favour, and I will never cease to honour thee as my special and powerful patron and do all in my power to encourage devotion to thee.  Amen.

St Jude pray for us, and for all who invoke thy aid.
St Jude, help of the hopeless, aid me in my distress!

Pray for us, that we may appease the Divine Justice, and obtain a favourable judgement.

Pray for us, that we may be admitted into the company of the blessed, to rejoice in the presence of God forever.  Amen.

Blessed Apostle, with confidence we invoke thee!
Blessed Apostle, with confidence we invoke thee!
Blessed Apostle, with confidence we invoke thee!
St Jude, help of the hopeless, aid me in my distress!

Pray for us, that before death we may expiate all our sins by sincere repentance and the worthy reception of the holy sacraments.

Let us pray.  Glorious apostle, martyr and relative of Jesus, St Jude Thaddeus, who didst spread the true Faith among the most barbarous and distant nations; who didst win to the obedience of Jesus Christ many tribes and peoples by the power of His holy Word, grant, I beseech thee, that from this day I may renounce every sinful habit, that I may be preserved from all evil thoughts, that I may always obtain thy assistance, particularly in every danger and difficulty, and that I may safely reach the heavenly country, with thee to adore the Most Holy Trinity, the Father, Son and Holy Ghost, forever and ever. Amen.

PRAYER

O God who through thy blessed apostle St Jude hast brought us to a knowledge of thy name, grant that by advancing in holiness we may celebrate his lasting glory, and by celebrating it become holier still; through our Lord.  Amen.
