Novena to St. Jude

Come to my aid O God; O Lord, make haste to help me. Thou, O Lord, shall open my lips; And my tongue shall proclaim thy praise. Glory be ...

Come, Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Thy faithful and enkindle in them the fire of Thy love.
V. Send forth Thy Spirit and they shall be created.
R. And Thou shalt renew the face of the earth.
O God, Who didst instruct the hearts of the faithful by the light of the Holy Spirit, grant us by the gift of the same Spirit to be truly wise, and ever to rejoice in His consolation. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

O Lord Jesus Christ, Who has said, "Ask, and you shall receive; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you;" grant, we beg You, to us who ask, the gift of Your most Divine love, that with all our heart, words, and works, we may love You, and never cease to praise You. Make us, O Lord, to have a perpetual fear and love of Your Most Holy Name, for You never fail to govern those Whom You solidly establish in your love. You, Who live and reign forever and ever. Amen.

Most holy Apostle St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor who delivered your beloved Master into the hands of His enemies has caused you to be forgotten by many, but the True Church honors and invokes you universally as the patron of hopeless cases, of things almost despaired of. Pray for me who am so miserable and alone; make use, I implore you, of this particular privilege accorded to you by God, to bring visible and speedy help, where help is almost despaired of. Come to my assistance in this great need, so that I may receive the consolations and succor of Heaven in all my necessities, tribulations and sufferings, particularly (...), and that I may bless God with you and all the Communion of Saints throughout eternity. I promise you, O blessed apostle St. Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor granted to me by God, never cease to honor you as my special and powerful patron and to do all in my power to gratefully encourage devotion to you. Amen.

1 Our Father, 3 Hail Mary's, 1Glory be

Blessed Apostle, with confidence we invoke thee.

St. Jude, help of the hopeless, aid me in my distress.

O God, Who through Your blessed apostle St. Jude has brought us unto the knowledge of Your Name; grant us both to celebrate his eternal glory by making progress in virtue, and by celebrating his glory to advance in virtue, through Christ our Lord. Amen.

O God, You have made Your Name known to us through the Apostles. By the intercession of St. Jude, let Your Church continue to grow with an increased number of believers. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen.
