Saint Jude, Apostle, blessed be your name.
Saint Jude, Apostle, widespread is your fame.
Confident and hopeful, we call on your name.

Saint Jude, you share the name of Judas who betrayed Our Lord,
and many have forgotten you,
but we have not forgotten you.
We pray to you, patron of hopeless cases,
and of those who despair.
We are sinners, but we trust in God’s mercy and love.
Intercede for us,
that our faith be kept strong in our sorrows and trials.
Help us to see in our troubles God’s plan for our salvation.
Intercede with God for us in our present needs.
Join us as we pray in Jesus, name.
Amen.
