Special Dominican St. Jude Novena for Your Intentions
April 22 - April 30
We receive thousands of prayer requests each year here at the Shrine of St. Jude. We make sure that each and every one of your requests is prayed over. However, with the advent of our new Special Novenas, we are adding an additional layer of prayers for your requests.
Your prayers for us and the financial support you send support the Shrine and benefit our Dominican brothers in initial formation and our retired friars on limited service. So in order to say “Thank You” in a unique way during our Special Novenas, the Dominican Communities in the central United States who benefit the most from your help are praying for you as well. The Friars living in our Novitiate (St. Dominic Priory in Denver, Colorado), in our Studium or Dominican Seminary if you prefer (St. Dominic Priory in St. Louis, Missouri), and our assisted living facility (St. Pius V Priory in Chicago, Illinois) pray the following prayer for you and for the important part of your ministry as a supporter of the Shrine:
Most Holy Apostle, St. Jude Thaddeus, faithful friend and servant of Jesus and our patron of many years, we ask for your prayers. Kindly intercede for us and for those who have requested our prayers through the Shine of St. Jude. We receive thousands of petitions each year. Please pray to Christ for those who are suffering from all illnesses, those who have fallen away from their Faith, those who are experiencing financial difficulties, those looking for work, and those with troubled marriages. And finally, we implore that we, who are supported with the help of your ministry within the Communion of Saints, be given the grace to be like you, a true preacher of the Gospel and faithful disciple of Christ our Lord. Through God’s grace, we ask to be ambassadors of His Hope: a hope which you have inspired in so many through the ages. All this we ask through Christ our Lord who lives and reigns with God the Father and God the Holy Spirit forever and ever.
