Today we begin the Novena to Saint Jude for Thomas Peters and his wife, Natalie. Thomas was left with a devastating spinal cord injury a few years back, just after he was married. His wife has been everything a husband could ask for. We pray this novena for a wonderful couple, from a wonderful family of Catholics who have done much for the Church.
|Most holy Apostle, St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the Church honors and invokes you universally, as the patron of difficult cases, of things almost despaired of, Pray for me, I am so helpless and alone.
Intercede with God for me that He bring visible and speedy help where help is almost despaired of. Come to my assistance in this great need that I may receive the consolation and help of heaven in all my necessities, tribulations, and sufferings, particularly those of Thomas, your faithful son and servant, that he may gain restoration of function- and that I may praise God with you and all the saints forever. I promise, O Blessed St. Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor granted me by God and to always honor you as my special and powerful patron, and to gratefully encourage devotion to you.Amen
May the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus be adored, and loved in all the tabernacles until the end of time. Amen.
May the most Sacred Heart of Jesus be praised and glorified now and forever. Amen
St. Jude pray for us and hear our prayers. Amen.
Blessed be the Sacred Heart of Jesus
St. Jude Novena – DAY ONE
O blessed apostle St. Jude, who labored zealously among the Gentiles in many lands, and performed numerous miracles in needy and despairing cases, I ask you to take interest in my needs. I know that you understand me. Please hear my prayers and my petitions. Please beg God for me and my deepest needs.
That Thomas may gain restoration of function in his spine; that he and his wife, Natalie, may continue to grow together in holiness and love, in patience and fortitude, and that they may be blessed with every blessing from heaven for their love and witness to all that is holy in marriage; that their love will continue to bear abundant fruit both in their lives, and in the lives of all who know them.
I pray that I will be patient in learning God’s holy will for me and then courageously carry it out in my life.
St. Jude, pray for me!
Lord Jesus, Son of God, have mercy on me a sinner!
