O Holy St. Jude, Apostle and Martyr, Great in Mercy and Rich in Miracles, near kinsman of Jesus Christ, Faithful intercessor of all who invoke your special patronage in time of need, to you I have recourse from the depth of my heart and humbly beg to whom God has given such Great Powers to come to my assistance. Help me in my urgent petition. In return, I promise to make your name known and cause you to be invoked. St. Jude pray for us and all who invoke your aid. Say 3 Hail Marys, 3 Our Fathers, 3 Glorias. Publication must be promised. This Novena has never been known to fail. My request has been granted. Say this Novena for 9 consecutive days. J.L.B.
