“O glorious Apostle, St. Jude Thaddeus,
faithful servant and friend of Jesus,
the name of the traitor has caused you to
be forgotten by many, but the Church
invokes you universally as the patron
of hopeless cases and of all things despaired
of. Pray for me that I may receive the
consolations and succor of Heaven in
all my necessities, tribulations, and
sufferings particularly (here make your request)
and that I may bless God with you and
all the elect throughout eternity. Amen.”
