This week we celebrate Holy Week, one of the most solemn and joyful weeks of the year. We are grateful for you and the thousands of others who have sent their petitions to be joined together in the St. Jude Holy Week Prayer Cross. The cross is currently on display at the National Shrine of St. Jude during Holy Week, March 24th – 31st.
Prayer to St. Jude:
Most holy Apostle, St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the Church honors and invokes you universally as the patron of hope. Please intercede on my behalf. Make use of that particular privilege given to you to bring hope, comfort, and help where they are needed most. Come to my assistance in this great need that I may receive the consolation and help of heaven as I work with my challenges, particularly (here make your request). I praise God with you and all the saints forever. I promise, blessed St. Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor, to always honor you as my special and powerful patron, and to gratefully encourage devotion to you. Amen.
