The St. Jude Journal – August 2017


We are delighted to share with you letters of thanksgiving for St. Jude’s intercession, especially during the upcoming Solemn Novena to St. Jude, August 12th—20th. Please join us and thousands of other devotees by sending your petition or letter of gratitude to the National Shrine of St. Jude.

Few changes are as quick to disrupt our lives as something that alters our health. A need for healing touches each of us differently. Hopefully it sends us on a search for healing, strength and hope through our faith.

For many of us, the path to healing starts with prayer. We ask God to give us His healing love, and maybe a bit more strength than we usually need. We also turn to St. Jude, the Patron of Hope, for the courage to approach our healing with patience and the peace of hope.

Our upcoming Solemn Novena to St. Jude, August 12th 20th at the National Shrine, is another way to share your needs for healing with St. Jude. While all petitions are definitely welcome for the Novena, these nine days of prayer are especially dedicated to asking St. Jude to intercede on our behalf for God’s healing.

As you consider your needs for prayer, we invite you to send your petitions to the National Shrine, where they will be prayed for during the Novena and remembered in the Masses and prayers of the Claretian Missionaries.

May God grant His healing love to you and your loved ones.

    Father, I need your discerment. Judge not lest you be judged. Do not cast your pearls before swine. These seem to contradict each other this night. I am angry, or was. I don’t know where I am with this? Where would you lead me? The answer, let it come to me. As of now, you lost me. What is your will in this matter? I don’t know. Discernment is what I need. In this matter you seem not to answer, and there is no answer. Do I forgive and try again? Or do I move along and forgive. The answer please in the name of Christ, Amen

    Father, I am calling to you. I I ask for your help. The lips are sealed. The mind and heart are closed? I asked for an almost miracle. In your name I prayed as instructed. You cannot do all? Why? Explain to me, that I understand. I look forward to be explained about this. Of course its on my mind.Prayer in all things is it not? So , even if I don’t like the answer explain to me.In the name of Christ reveal your plans, so I don’t feel adrift. Amen
