St. Jude Offers Hope and Healing

Categories: Mission & Ministry News,News,Prayer Requests,Stories

Dear Friend of St. Jude,

“When you have your health, you have everything.” No doubt you have heard this common saying, and how true it is. Those who have recovered from illness usually say it in gratitude and relief. Illness, be it physical or mental, is a burden that keeps us from fully enjoying life.

It is of no surprise to us here at St. Jude Shrine that so many of the prayer petitions we receive are related to health. Truthfully, there are few causes more desperate, than those who live in suffering.

St. JudeAs the patron saint of those in desperation, St. Jude embraces those prayer requests. His intercession with the Lord on our behalf has restored a multitude of grateful souls to good health. To those whose infirmities are not healed, God gives the gift of spiritual strength and acceptance.

Please accept my gift of prayer for yourself or a loved one. When you return your petitions to us, along with any offering that you can give, your prayers will be remembered in the prayers, Novenas and Masses offered here at St. Jude Shrine. To thank you for your generous support, we shall also continue to pray for you and your loved ones in a special daily Mass celebrated at the Tomb of St. Jude in the Vatican.

Every day we receive testimonials from people all over the world who have experienced a healing miracle, thanks to St. Jude. Just a few recent ones include these…

Thank you St. Jude. My husband was rushed to the hospital with severe abdominal pain. A CT scan showed a mass in his stomach. I prayed to St. Jude that it would not be cancer. The next morning, he had an endoscopy, and the doctors could not find any mass or anything abnormal. The mass was gone! Thank you St. Jude! – Evelyn 

Five years ago, St. Jude’s medal was in my son’s bed as he received his bone marrow transplant to cure his leukemia. Through our glorious Apostle St. Jude and our Sacred Heart of Jesus, our son Bob is now cured. I will never forget. Thank you. – Anna

Now, more than ever, we need your help. Your most generous gift is urgently needed to help us continue the Pallottine apostolic programs in 54 countries throughout the world. Your offering will help provide tangible relief aid to the poor, including food, clean water, medicine, and shelter along with the love and hope of Jesus Christ.

May you be strengthened with God’s healing love through the intercession of St. Jude.


  Wishing you the Hope of St. Jude,
Fr. Peter Sticco, S.A.C.
Novena Director

P.S. Please send your prayer requests along with your most generous gift today. I will make sure your prayer requests are remembered in the prayers, Novenas and Masses at our Shrine and in daily Mass that is celebrated on St. Jude’s tomb in the Vatican.
