St. Jude, you remained faithful to our Lord, even unto death. You gave your life so that others might live. You endured physical pain and emotional abandonment. But you gladly joined your sufferings to those of our savior, Jesus, and thus shared in the redemption of the world. I ask you now to intercede with our brother, Jesus Christ on my behalf, so that I, too, can find strength in the face of my suffering. Help me to trust in God and put my life in His hands. Amen. THE LITANY TO ST. JUDE FOLLOWS.
