St. Jude, pray for us
St. Jude is the Patron Saint of Hope and Impossible causes. He was one of the 12 Apostles. He is brother of St. James the less (another Apostle) and both of them are called cousin to Jesus. St. Jude is usually pictured carrying an image of Jesus with him. The tongue of fire above his head is the Holy Spirit received at Pentecost. St. Jude and St. Simon preached together after Jesus’ resurrection and ascension. They both died a martyr’s death for their faith.

Prayer to St. Jude
Most holy Apostle, St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the Church honors and invokes you universally as the patron of hope. Please intercede on my behalf. Make use of that particular privilege given to you to bring hope, comfort, and help where they are needed most. Come to my assistance in this great need that I may receive the consolation and help of heaven as I work with my challenges, particularly (here make your request). I praise God with you and all the saints forever. I promise, blessed St. Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor, to always honor you as my special and powerful patron, and to gratefully encourage devotion to you. Amen.
