While I prayed this Novena to St. Jude for the Judge to be compassionate and understanding in my son’s sentencing, I did not get what I was expecting. Instead of accepting the plea, he blasted him and extended the sentencing terms. While my son did indeed need to be punished, I felt that the sentencing was very harsh. I do thank St. Jude because, of course, it could have been worse. I will take what I can get knowing that this is part of God’s plan somehow. I am learning to pray without expecting or asking for what I want. But what God wants. It is tough. But I do have faith that God takes care of all when asked but not necessarily in the way that is expected or in the timeframe one expects.
