PRAYER TO ST. JUDE THADDEUS
O Glorious St. Jude Thaddeus, by those sublime privileges which so ennobled thee in thy lifetime relationship according to the flesh with our Lord Jesus Christ and the apostolate; by that glory which, as the reward of thy labors and martyrdom, thou dost now enjoy in heaven; obtain for us from the Giver of every good all the graces we need to enable us to profit greatly by that divinely inspired doctrine which thou has handed down to us in thy Epistle; that is, to build the edifice of perfection upon the foundation of faith, praying through the grace of the Holy Spirit; to keep ouselves always in the love of God, looking for the mercy of Jesus Christ unto life everlasting; and to help by every available means those who go astray. Thus shall we exalt the glory, the majesty, the dominion, the authority of Him, who is able to preserve us without sin and keep us without blemish and in gladness unto the coming of Our Lord Jesus Christ, God our Savior. AMEN


BLESSING FOR THE SICK
Grant almighty and eternal God, everlasting health to those who believe. Hear us for thy sick, for whom we implore the aid of thy tender mercy, that being restored to bodily health they may give thanks to thee in thy church, through Christ our Lord. AMEN

They shall lay their hands upon the sick and they shall recover. May Jesus, the Son of Mary, the Lord and Redeemer of the world, through the merits and intercession of His Holy apostle Jude Thaddeus and all His saints, show them favor and mercy. AMEN


PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING:
(To be said when a favor has been granted)

O most sweet Lord Jesus Christ, in union with Thy Holy Mother Mary and all the Angels and Saints, I praise, glorify and bless thee for all the graces and privileges Thou has bestowed upon Thy chosen Apostle and intimate friend, St. Jude Thaddeus. I pray Thee for the sake of his merits, grant me Thy grace and through his intercession come to my aid in all my needs; but especially at the hour of my death deign to strengthen me against the rage of my enemies. AMEN


OH MY GOD, I firmly believe that thou art really and corporally present in the Blessed Sacrament of the altar. I adore thee here present from the depths of my heart and I worship thy sacred presence with all possible humility. O my soul what joy to have Jesus Christ always with us and to be able to speak to Him heart to heart with all confidence. Grant O Lord that I having adored thy Divine Majesty here on earth in this wonderful Sacrament may be able to adore it eternally in heaven. AMEN.

O GLORIOUS APOSTLE, St Jude Thaddeus true relative of Jesus and Mary I salute thee through the most Sacred Heart of Jesus. Through this Heart I praise and thank God for all the graces he has bestowed upon thee. Humility prostrate before thee. I implore thee through the Heart to look down upon me with compassion. Oh despise not my poor prayers. Let my trust be confounded. To thee God has granted the privilege of aiding mankind in the most desperate cases. Oh come to my aid that I may praise the mercies of God. All my life I will be grateful to thee and will be thy faithful client until I can thank thee in heaven. AMEN.

L. Blessed Apostle, with confidence we invoke thee!

A. St Jude, help of the hopeless aid us in our distress!

Pray for us that before death we may expiate all our sins by sincere repentance and the worthy reception of the holy sacraments!

Pray for us that we may appease the Divine Justice and obtain a favorable judgment!

Pray for us that we may be admitted into the company of the blessed to rejoice in the presence of God forever!

Most Holy Apostle, St Jude Thaddeus faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor who delivered thy beloved Master into the hands of His enemies has caused thee to be forgotten by many but the church honors and invokes thee universally as the patron of the hopeless cases and of things despaired of.

Pray for me, who am so miserable. Make use I implore thee of that particular privilege accorded to thee to bring visible and speedy help where help is almost despaired of. Come to my assistance in this great need that I may receive the consolations and succor of heaven in all my necessities, tribulations and sufferings particularly (here make your request) and that I may bless God with thee and all the elect forever.

I promise thee O Blessed Jude to be ever mindful of this great favor and I will never cease to honor thee as my special and powerful patron and do all in my power to encourage devotion to thee. AMEN.

Let Us Pray

O St Jude Thaddeus, thou relative of Jesus Christ, thou glorious apostle and martyr, renowned for thy virtues and miracles, faithful and prompt intercessor of all who honor thee and trust in thee! Thou art a powerful patron and helper in grievous afflictions. I come to thee and entreat thee from the depths of my heart; come to my aid with thy powerful intercession, for thou hast received from God the privilege to assist with thy manifest help, those who almost despair of all hope.

Look down upon me; my life is a life of crosses, my days are days of tribulations and my heart is an ocean of bitterness. All my paths are strewn with thorns and scarcely one moment passes but is witness of my tears and sighs; uneasiness, discouragement, mistrust and almost despair prey upon my soul.

Thou canst forsake me in this sad plight, I will not depart from thee until lhou hast heard me. Oh! hasten to my aid, I will be grateful in thee all my life. I will honor thee as my special patron. I will thank God for the graces bestowed upon thee and will encourage devotion to thee according to my power. AMEN

L. St Jude Thaddeus, pray for us.
A. And for all who invoke thy aid.
