The St. Jude Journal – June 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, June 17th—25th. Please join with thousands of other devotees by sending your petition or letter of gratitude to the National Shrine of St. Jude.

We know from our own experiences how good it feels to be asked for our help by someone we care about. Placing ourselves in service of those we love gives us a great sense of purpose and fulfillment. Giving to others also strengthens the bond of trust we share with them.

It can take a little more effort to turn the table and ask for help ourselves. In our spiritual lives, asking for what we need calls into action the trust we have in our faith. Our faith encourages us to meditate on our needs, respond to God’s call to enter into relationship with Him through prayer, and to ask for His help, guidance, and mercy.

The upcoming Solemn Novena to St. Jude is a unique opportunity to share our needs with God through the intercession of St. Jude. We will celebrate the nine days of Novena prayer June 17th—25th at the National Shrine of St. Jude. Novena prayer gives us a special focused way to turn to God for guidance and to receive the strength of the Holy Spirit.

Send your special intentions and we will place them at the altar of St. Jude at the National Shrine, where they will be remembered in our Masses and prayers throughout the Novena.

Any gifts you can share with us—whether in prayers for our work, financial support, or both—make an important difference in our ministries, including fostering the devotion to St. Jude.

We look forward to praying for you during the Solemn Novena. May the peace that comes from devotion to St. Jude be with you always, even on a day-to-day basis.

    Dear St Jude and all The Saints please pray for the blessing and protection of the innocents in all creation. For peace throughout the world. The conversion of sinners. And all our intentions if it be Gods will. Please pray especially for the conversion of the church so that the shepherds may lead us all to becoming Christ like in all we do. Deeds not words.
