Oh glorious apostle St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor who delivered thy beloved Master into the hands of His enemies has caused thee to be forgotten by many, but the Church honors and invokes thee universally as the patron of hopeless cases--of things despaired of. Pray for me who am so miserable; make use, I implore thee, of that particular privilege accorded thee of bringing 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 succor of heaven in all my necessities, tribulations and sufferings, particularly (mention your request), and that I may bless God with thee and all the elect throughout eternity. I promise thee, O blessed St. Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor, and I will never cease to honor thee as my special and powerful patron, and to do all in my power to encourage devotion to thee. Amen
St. Jude Thaddeus is represented as wearing a miniature of Our Lord upon his breast.
St. Jude Thaddeus should not be confused with Judas Iscariot, the traitor who betrayed Christ.
A message From Your Rosary Maker : If you have an urgent need do not hesitate in reaching out to St. Jude.
Thank you my dear St. Jude for intervening so quickly on my behalf. Thank you. (R)
