Patron Saint

The Prayer to Saint Jude

Most Holy Apostle Saint Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor who delivered your beloved Master into the hands of His enemies, has caused you to be forgotten by many. But the church honors and invokes you universally as the patron of hopeless cases, of things almost despaired of. Come to my assistance in this great need that I might receive the consolation and help of heaven in all my necessities, tribulations, and sufferings, particularly (make your request here) and that I might praise God with you and all the elect forever. I promise, O blessed Saint 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

 

Spiritual Communion

My Jesus,
I believe that You
are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself
wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You.
Amen.
