St. Jude is the faithful servant of Jesus Christ
and the brother of James the Less. The holy apostle
bears the name "Thaddeus" which means
"Loving" or "Amiable". Many
people with faith have called on St. Jude for his
intercession. He is invoked especially in cases
of extreme need of serious illness, poverty or circumstances
that seem hopeless. St. Jude has obtained succour
for those with grave and varying problems, who have
prayed to him. Hence, he is well known as the Patron
Saint of Difficult Cases. Those who are in trouble
should approach him with confidence. He is the helper
and consoler of anyone with problem that seems insurmountable.
One of the ways of invoking St. Jude is through
the nine days of successive prayers, known as Novena.
You can participate in the novenas organized at
St. Dominic's Yaba. All the information is available
on our website. For your own private devotion, we
have also included several prayers on our website.
You can print them out, and pray them fervently
with your family.
