Novena to Saint Jude

Come to my aid, O God.
O Lord, make haste to help me.
Almighty God, Father of mercies
and giver of all good gifts,
I come before you to honor you in your saints,
and ask their help in my many needs.
You promised that those who ask, would receive,
those who seek, would find, those who knock,
would have doors opened to them.
Hear the prayers of your church, grant my requests,
and pardon my sins.
Amen

Good St. Jude, chose by Jesus as a messenger of His kingdom,
and bearer of God's power,
I entrust myself to your care
and place in your hands this request of mine that Pat's needs, both spiritual and physical be met.
You are a witness that nothing is impossible with God and
that all will be well by God's grace.
Pray that I may have a simple faith
and strong hope to believe and trust in God,
my Master, who makes all things possible
and brings all things to good.
Amen

Day 1

Lord Jesus Christ,
you promised that mountains would move for someone with faith
the size of a mustard seed. Plant the seed of faith in my
heart and help me believe in the power of your promises.
Amen

Day 2

Lord Jesus Christ,
You taught that God who cares for the lilies of the field
and the birds of the air, also cares for those of little faith.
Lord, come and care for me.
Amen

Day 3

Lord Jesus Christ,
In the storm at sea you told you disciples not to fear
but to believe in your power to calm the winds and the sea.
Speak to my troubled spirit, and calm my fears.
Amen

Day 4

Lord Jesus Christ,
no one comes to you, even those desperate and poor,
whom you do not welcome and refresh,
I come tired and burdened, make my spirit light.
Amen

Day 5

Lord Jesus Christ,
you listen to our prayers, and grant what we ask.
Hear my prayers and listen to my voice,
for I am in need.
Amen

Day 6

Lord Jesus Christ,
in the Garden of Gethsemane you prayed in fear and sorrow.
Turn to me when I am afraid, and give me strength to bear
my cross.
Amen

Day 7

Lord Jesus Christ,
when you died on the cross, all seemed lost and gone,
yet you came to life again.
When all seems lost for me, bring me life again,
O Lord.
Amen

Day 8

Lord Jesus Christ,
you rose from the dead and brought life to all creation.
I hope in your promise of life.
Bring me the joy of your resurrection.
Amen

Day 9

Lord Jesus Christ,
you prepare a place for us in your heavenly kingdom.
Grant me a place at your side and bring us all safely home.
Amen


To conclude this novena, say one Our Father, one Hail Mary, and one Glory Be.

Our Father

Our Father
Who art in Heaven
Hallowed be thy name.
Thy kingdom come,
Thy will be done.
On earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread
And forgive us our trespasses
As we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
But deliver us from evil.
Amen

Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of Grace
The Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou amongst women
And Blessed is the Fruit of thy Womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God,
Pray for us sinners,
Now, and at the hour of our death
Amen

Glory Be

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit.
As it was in the beginning, is now,
And ever shall be.
World without end.
Amen

Loving Father,
I stand before You in the midst of confusion and complexities of life.
My future sometimes seems distant and unknown.
Give me, O Lord, the vision to see the path You set before me.
Grant me the courage to follow Your way,
that through the gifts and talents You have given me,
I may bring Your life and Your love to others.
I ask this through Jesus, Your Son and my Brother.

Amen.

Prayer Request for Fallen Away Catholics



Please pray for all our family members who are fallen-away Catholics.  Please pray they return to the Catholic Church.
 
Thank you. 
 D.

*       *       *       *       *       *       *



O Almighty Father, who desirest not the death of the sinner, but rather that he be converted and live, pour out upon us thy mercy and hear the prayers of thy servants. Soften the hearts of thy children who have strayed from the true paths, which thou didst establish for their salvation. They are now forgetful of their duties as Catholics, and pursue only the transitory pleasures of the world. Grant that they may speedily return to the practice of every Christian virtue, so that their lives may shine with the integrity of faith, the fervour of piety and the ardour of charity. Restore all of them to thy sacraments and to the life of thy grace, through the merits of the Most Precious Blood of thy Son, our Saviour Jesus Christ.

Amen.

*       *       *       *       *       *       *





O Mother of Jesus Christ and our Mother, we pray thee to obtain for us the grace of serving God faithfully in this world that we may have the happiness of loving him eternally in heaven. Hear the prayers that we address to thee, O Mother. Defend us against the enemies of our salvation, and against our own infirmities. Obtain for us pardon for our sins and perseverance in the determination never to fall away again. We implore thee to take under thy protection those who have abandoned the practice of their Catholic duties. May they be converted again and become faithful servants of thy Son. O Mother of Mercy, be for us all "the cause of our joy" and shew unto us Jesus Christ, thy Son, as thy gift to us both for time and for eternity.

Amen.

*       *       *       *       *       *       *



O glorious Saint Peter, Prince of the Apostles and firm foundation of the Church, obtain for us all a lively faith, which we may openly and fearlessly profess in its fullness and purity, even, if need be, to the shedding of our blood. Obtain for us also, a true love of our Holy Mother the Church, and keep us ever zealous in the fulfillment of our religious duties. We pray to thee today to intercede for those who have wandered from the Church which Christ established for their salvation. Through thine intercession, may they receive from God the grace to return speedily to their Father's house, so that on earth they may enjoy peace and tranquillity, and one day attain everlasting happiness in heaven.

Amen.

*       *       *       *       *       *       *



O Lord Jesus Christ, most gracious Saviour of the world, we humbly beg of thee by thy most Sacred Heart, that all the sheep now wandering astray may be converted unto thee, the Shepherd and Bishop of their souls. Who livest and reignest from this time forth for evermore.

Amen.

O good and gentle Saint Anthony,
your love of God and concern
for His creatures made you worthy,
while on earth,
to possess miraculous powers.
Come to my help
in this moment of trouble and anxiety.
Your ardent love of God
made you worthy
to hold the Holy Infant in your arms.
Whisper to Him my humble request
if it be for the greater glory of God,
and the salvation of my soul.

Amen.

comforting the sorrowful

By word, attitude, and deed
I should try to brighten their days
and make their burden easier to bear.
Saint Anthony, Consoler of the Afflicted,
may I remember when helping someone in sorrow
that I am helping Christ Himself.
Kindly mention my pressing needs to Him.
Saint Anthony please pray for the Spiritual
and Physical sustenance of this family,
And that we may be made worthy
Of the Promises of Christ.

Amen

Compassionate Lord and Savior,
You know well how profound a grief is suffered by normal mothers when their child is sick.
Good mothers are truly "compassionate,"
that is, they suffer with their children.
Please bless this Sick Child
and bring consolation to the parents.
This we ask through the intercession of Mary, our Mother,
who on Calvary became the Mother of Sorrows. 
Amen

 *            *            *            *            *            *            *


Father,
your Son accepted our sufferings
to teach us the virtue of patience in human illness.
Hear the prayers we offer for our sick brothers and sisters.
May all who suffer pain, illness or disease realize that they are chosen to be saints,
and know that they are joined to Christ
in his suffering for the salvation of the world,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
One God, for ever and ever.  
Amen

Prayer for the Intercession of Saint Maximlian Kolbe, Patron of Addicts


 Dear Christ, Saint Maximilian was imprisoned in Auschwitz where he ministered to the captives and celebrated Mass by consecrating bread and wine that had been smuggled in. He was martyred after he voluntarily took the place of a young married prisoner condemned to die. Since he's the patron saint of drug addicts and people in prison, I ask him to intercede for the inmates in our jails. O Lord, heal their hearts and protect them from the evil that surrounds them. I also ask him to pray for the addicts in my family and my friends' families. O Lord, set them free from the prison of their addictions. Saint Maximilian, pray for us.
Amen.

 Prayer for the Intercession of Saint Dymphna, Patron of Mental Illness
 
 

Lord God, Who has graciously chosen Saint Dymphna to be the patroness of those afflicted with mental and nervous disorders, and has caused her to be an inspiration and a symbol of charity to the thousands who invoke her intercession, grant through the prayers of this pure, youthful martyr, relief and consolation to all who suffer from these disturbances, and especially to Steven for whom we now pray.

    We beg You to accept and grant the prayers of Saint Dymphna on our behalf. Grant to those we have particularly recommended patience in their sufferings and resignation to Your Divine Will. Fill them with hope and, if it is according to Your Divine Plan, bestow upon them the cure they so earnestly desire. Grant this through Christ Our Lord. Amen

 Prayer to Saint Jude, Patron of Desperate Situations



Dear Apostle and Martyr for Christ, you left us an Epistle in the New Testament. With good reason many invoke you when illness is at a desperate stage. We now recommend to your kindness Steven who is in a critical condition. May the cure of this patient increase his faith and love for the Lord of Life, for the glory of our merciful God. Amen.
