O 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 petition. In return, I promise to make your name known, and cause you to be invoked. Say three Our Fathers, three Hail Marys and Glorias. Publication must be promised. St. Jude pray for us and all who invoke your aid, Amen. This Novena has never been known to fail. This Novena must be said for nine consecutive days. P.L.P. MAY THE VIRGIN MARY MOTHER Be praised, adored and glorified throughout the whole world forever and ever. Amen. Say this prayer six times a day for nine days and your petition will be granted. No matter how difficult, don’t forget to thank the Sacred Heart and promise to publish. G.L.P.
