The St. Jude Journal – Spring 2018eJournal
We are delighted to share with you letters of thanksgiving for St. Jude’s intercession, especially during the upcoming Solemn Novena to St. Jude, April 28th—May 6th. Please join us by sending your petition or letter of gratitude to the National Shrine of St. Jude.
Our faith gives direction to our lives as we continue to grow in our relationship with God. Many aspects of our faith work together to bring His loving presence into clearer focus, giving guidance as we navigate life.
Prayer is at the heart of our faith lives; it opens us to receiving God’s mercy and grace while sharing with Him our hopes and needs. This communication gives us the profound certainty we are never alone. Our devotion to St. Jude takes our prayer to yet another level of connection with God, encouraging us to hope always and to continually place our trust in Him.
The upcoming Solemn Novena to St. Jude is a unique opportunity for prayer. Novena prayer gives us another way to turn to God for guidance and to receive the tremendous gift of the hope St. Jude offers.
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 or financial support—make a significant difference in the lives of the people we serve in communities with great need.
Thank you for sharing in Novena prayer with us, and for reaching to God in this special way. May the hope of St. Jude be with you always.
