Prayer to Saint Jude
To be said in cases despaired of
St. JUDE, glorious Apostle, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor has caused you to be forgotten by many, but the true Church invokes you universally as the Patron of things despaired of; pray for me, who am so miserable; pray for me, that finally I may receive the consolations and the succor of Heaven in all my necessities, tribulations, and sufferings, particularly — (here make your request) — and that I may bless God with the Elect throughout Eternity. Amen.
St. Jude, Apostle, martyr, and relative of our Lord Jesus Christ, of Mary and of Joseph, intercede for us.
