Glorious St. Jude, with faith in your goodness, we ask your help today. As one of Christ’s chosen Apostles, you remain a pillar and foundation of his Church on earth. You are counted, we know, among the elders who always stand before God’s throne. From your place of glory, we know you do not forget the needs and difficulties of Christ’s little ones here, still struggling, like me, on the way home to God. Please intercede for us all, gracious St. Jude, and be with us in our daily toil and in all necessities. In Christ’s name, we appeal to you again today. Amen.
