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 may receive the consolation
and help of heaven
in all my necessities, tribulations, and sufferings, particularly
and that I may 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.
