O, Glorious Apostle St. Jude,
true relative of Jesus and Mary,
I salute you through the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus,
and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
I praise and thank God
for all the graces He has bestowed upon you.
I implore you,
through the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts,
to look upon me with compassion.
Despise not my poor prayers,
and let my trust be not in vain.
To you has been assigned the privilege
of aiding mankind in the most desperate cases.
Come to my aid,
that I may praise the mercies of God.
All my life, I will be grateful to you,
and will be your faithful client,
until I can thank you in Heaven.
Blessed Apostle with confidence we invoke thee! (three times)
St. Jude, Help of the Hopeless, aid me in my distress! (three times)
Pray for us,
that before death we may expiate all our sins by sincere repentance
and the worthy reception of the Holy Sacrament.
Pray for us that we may appease the Divine Justice
and obtain a favorable judgment.
Pray for us, that we may be admitted into the company of the blessed
to rejoice in the presence of our God forever.
LET US PRAY
Glorious Apostle, martyr and relative of Jesus, St. Jude Thaddeus,
who didst spread the true Faith among the most barbarous and distant nations;
who didst win to the obedience of Jesus Christ many tribes and peoples,
by the power of His Holy Word,
grant I beseech thee,
that from this day I may renounce every sinful habit,
that I may be preserved from all evil thoughts,
that I may always obtain thy assistance,
particularly in every danger and difficulty
and that I may safely reach the heavenly country with thee,
to adore the Most Holy trinity,
the Father, Son and Holy Ghost,
forever and ever.
