The Carmelites

Province Of The Most Pure Heart Of Mary


St. Jude

There is a great devotion to the Patron of Hopeless Cases. And prayers are said for the intercession of St. Jude every Thursday after all of the Masses.


Prayer to Saint Jude


Most Holy Apostle, St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor who delivered your beloved Master into the hands of his enemies has caused you to be forgotten by many, but the Church honors and invokes you universally as the patron of hopeless cases and of things despaired of. Pray for me, a sinner, and make use, I implore you, of that particular privilege accorded to you to bring visisble and speedy help where help is almost despaired of. Come to my assistance in my great need that I may receive the consolation and help of heaven in all my trials, necessities and sufferings, especially in these that I now ask of you.


(pause to mention petition)


Grant that I may bless God with you and all the elect now and throughout all eternity. I promise you, O blessed Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor and I will never cease to honor you as my special and powerful patron and to do all in my power to encourage devotion to you. Amen.


O Lord Jesus Christ, who through your blessed Apostle, St. Jude, has brought us into the knowledge of your name, grant that by advancing in virtue we may set forth his everlasting glory and by setting forth his glory, we may advance in virtue.


Through our Lord Jesus Christ who lives and reigns with the Father in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
