Saint Jude Thaddeus Patron of hopeless cases PRAY FOR US


St. Jude we entrust to you our urgent need!

Dear Friend,

Where do you turn when faced with challenging times? We all face the struggles of pain and sorrow, of loneliness and despair, of illness of mind, body and spirit.

At such times, St. Jude offers us the blessing of his spiritual companionship and help. All we have to do is ask. Just pray to God through St. Jude, our Saint of the impossible. In times of need, St. Jude has proven countless times to be a faithful friend. Prayer can change lives, give strength and encouragement, and offer real hope.

What comfort to know that in the midst of the worst of times we can reach out to St. Jude and he will hear us. And as we join our prayers with others, a powerful force for good rises.

This September, in gratitude for his unfailing assistance, please join us in honoring St. Jude. Saint of the Impossible, during two special Novenas of Masses.

The Novena in petition will be offered from September 2-10: the Novena in thanksgiving will be offered from September 11-19.

We invite you to share in consolation and hope during the Novenas. So please join us, won’t you, each day of the two special Novenas of daily Mass and prayer to St. Jude, who is the helper of the hopeless, the patron in cases almost despaired of.

And please send your personal petitions and intentions to me today. Place your fears and problems in St. Jude’s hand and pray with us. Remember that you are not alone. My brother friars and I will be praying for you each day.

May I make another small request? In the spirit of St. Jude, if you could send an offering for the support of our apostolic work at home and in the missions, we would be deeply grateful. Any gift you can spare will make an enormous difference in the lives of those we serve.

May St. Jude watch over you and may the good Lord, through St. Jude’s intercession, grant your petitions.

Yours in St. Jude,


Fr. Robert, O.F.M.

P.S.  Please also include your petitions for the intercession of St. Monica, who comes to the aid of troubled parents, mothers, widows and the abused and addicted, and join us in Novena prayers form August 19 to her feast day on August 27.

Thank you and may your life be filled with joy and peace.
