NOVENA TO ST. JUDE
Oh Holy St. Jude, Apostle and Martyr, great in virtue and rich in miracles, near kinsman of Jesus Christ, faithful intercessor of all who invoke your special patronage in time of need, to you I have recourse from the depth of my heart and humbly beg to whom God has given such great power to come to my assistance. Help me in my present and urgent position. In return, I promise to make your name known and cause you to be invoked. Say three Our Fathers, three Hail Mary's and Gloria's. Publication must be promised. St. Jude, pray for us all who invoke your aid, Amen. This novena has never been known to fail. This novena must be said for nine consecutive days. – J. V. C. & S. K. C.
