St Jude, Patron of Impossible Cases, Patron of Hope
Glorious Apostle, Saint Jude Thaddeus, I salute you through the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Through His Heart I praise and thank God for all the graces he has bestowed upon you. I implore you through His love to look upon me with compassion. Do not despise my poor prayer. Do not let my trust be confounded. God has granted to you the privilege of aiding mankind in the most desperate cases. Oh, come to my aid that I may praise the mercies of God. All my life I will be your grateful client until I can thank you in heaven. Amen.
Saint Jude, pray for us, and for all who invoke your aid.
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
Mother Mary, you accompanied the Lord Jesus in His infancy, in growing to be a Man, in His public Mission, in His Passion, Death and Resurrection. Please accompany me in all the stages of my life and teach me how to open my heart to the Lord. Hail Mary.
Lord Jesus, in virtue of Your Sacred Passion, please deflect all harm and ill away from my soul this day and grant me to abide in Your favour and grace, mercy and light, joy and victory. Amen.
