MOST HOLY APOSTLE ST. JUDE THADDEUS faithful servant
and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor who delivered your
beloved Master into the hands of the enemies has caused you
to be forgotten by many, but the Church honors and invokes
you universally as the patron of hopeless cases and of things
despaired of. Pray for me who am so needy; make use, I implore
you of that particular privilege accorded to you to bring visible
and speedy help where help is almost despaired. 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 mention your petition) and that I may bless
God with you and all the elect throughout eternity.
I promise you, O blessed Jude to be ever mindful of this great favor, and I will never cease to honor you as
my special and powerful patron and to do all in my power to encourage devotion to you.
