Novena for the Feast of Saint Jude Thaddeus ~~ 28th October ~~

~~ Day 7 ~~
In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Prayer to the Holy Spirit
Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of Thy faithful and kindle in them the fire of Thy love. Send forth the spirit, and they shall be created; And Thou shalt renew the face of the earth.
Let Us Pray : O God, who didst teach the hearts of Thy faithful people by sending them the Light of Thy Holy Spirit. Grant us by the same Spirit to have a right judgement in all things, and evermore to rejoice in His Holy Comfort through Christ Our Lord. Amen.

The Epistle of Saint Jude ...verse 21:
I love Thee, O Jesus, who are perfect charity; who in Thine essence art true God and true man; in whom are contained the treasures of the Divinity and all the fullness of grace which descends to us upon this earth.
I love Thee, Dear Jesus, who for love of me, hast made Thyself like unto me; enkindle within me the flame of Thy sacred Love, which Thou didst bring from Heaven, that loving Thee, I may grow into Thy likeness.
I love Thee, Divine Jesus, my Lord and Master, because Thou has redeemed and freed me, poor slave of sin, by Thy Precious Blood. Of Thy sweet Mercy, grant that I may enjoy the full fruit of Thy Redemption.
O sweetest Jesus, I implore that I may love Thee more and more!
Most loving Redeemer, at Thy departure from this world Thou didst not wish to leave us orphans. In Thy compassionate love Thou didst institute the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar, wherein Thou hast given Thyself in order to draw our hearts to Thee and enrich us with the plentitude of Thy graces. In this sacred mystery it is Thy desire to hear our prayers and to be our refuge in every need, our support in all difficulties, our comfort in every affiction.
Thou art wonderful, O Lord, in all Thy works, but in none more wonderful than in the Sacrament of Thy Love. With deepest reverence and awe we behold the divine Majesty, whom Heaven and earth cannot contain, enclosed under the humble appearance of bread. Here the Creator and Ruler of the entire universe condescends to dwell with the children of men and invites the poor and needy to come to Him.
O Jesus, our Advocate, both High Priest and Lamb of God forever, it was for our redemption and sanctification that Thou didst offer Thyself upon the altar of the Cross. In Thy boundless love Thou didst desire that this sacrifice of salvation should be daily renewed throughout the entire world until the end of time that through the merits of Thy Passion we may obtain the forgiveness of our sins and be filled with Thy grace and blessing.
In every place there is a sacrifice and there is offered to My name a clean oblation. The Holy Mass is our only means of worthily adoring and thanking our heavenly Father. Through this sacrifice the divine justice is unceasingly honored and appeased and the trasures of grace are opened to us. O God, how impenetrable is Thy wisdom; how infinite Thy power; how boundless Thy goodness and love!
Novena Prayers
O My God, I firmly believe / that Thou art really and corporally present / in the Blessed Sacrament of the altar. / I adore Thee here present / from the very depths of my heart, / and I worship Thy sacred presence / with all possible humility. /

O my soul, / what Joy to have Jesus Christ / always with us, / and to be able to speak to Him / heart to Heart / with all confidence. / Grant, O Lord, / that I / having adored Thy divine Majesty / here on earth / in this wonderful Sacrament, / may be able to adore It eternally in Heaven. Amen

O Glorious Apostle, St. Jude Thaddeus, / true relative of Jesus and Mary, / I salute thee through the most Sacred Heart of Jesus! / Through this Heart / I praise and thank God / for all the graces He has bestowed upon thee. / Humbly prostrate before thee, / I implore thee through His Sacred Heart / to look down upon me / with compassion. / Oh, despise not my poor prayers; / let not my trust be confounded! / To thee God has granted the priviledge/ of aiding mankind in the most desperate cases. / Oh, come to my aid, / that I may praise the mercies of God! / All my life I will be grateful to thee / and will be thy faithful client / until I can thank thee in Heaven. Amen.

Blessed Apostle, with confidence we invoke thee!
St. Jude, help of the hopeless, aid us in our distress!
Pray for us, / that before death / we may expiate all our sins / by sincere repentance / and the worthy reception fo the Holy Sacraments!
Pray for us, / that we may appease the Divine Justice / and obtain a favorable judgement!

Pray for us, / that we may be admitted / into the company of the blessed / to rejoice in the pressence of our God forever. Amen

Most Holy Apostle, / St. Jude Thaddeus, / faithful servant and friend of Jesus, / the name of the traitor who delivered thy beloved Master / into the hands of His enemies / has caused thee to be forgotten by many, / but the Holy Church honors / and invoke thee universally / as the patron of hopeless cases / and of things despaired of. Pray for me / who am so miserable; / make use, I implore thee, / of that particular privilege accorded to thee / to bring visible and speedy help / where help is almost despaired of. / Come to my assistance / in this great need / that I may receive / the consolations and succor of heaven / in all my necessities, / tribulations and sufferings, / particularly (here make your request) / and that I may bless God with thee / and all the elect forever.
I promise thee, / O Blessed Jude, / to be ever mindful / of this great favor / and I will never cease to honor thee / as my special and powerful patron / and to do all in my power / to encourage devotion to thee. Amen.
St. Jude, Pray for Us! And for those who invoke thy aid!

Let Us Pray : O Saint Jude Thaddeus , Thou relative of Jesus Christ, / Thou glorious Apostle and Martyr, / renowned for thy virtues and miracles, / faithful and prompt intercessor of all who honor thee and trust in thee! / Thou art a powerful patron and helper in grievous afflictions. / I come to thee and entreat thee from the very depths of my heart; / come to my aid with thy powerful intercession, / for thou hast received from God the privilege / to assist with thy manifest help, / those who almost despair of all hope. / Look down upon me; / my life is a life of crosses, my days are days of tribulation / and my heart is an ocean of bitterness. / All my paths are strewn with thorns / and scarcely one moment passes / but is witness of my tears and sighs; / uneasiness, discouragement, mistrust / and almost despair press upon my soul. / Thou canst not forsake me in this sad plight. / I will not depart from thee until thou hast heard me. / Oh! hasten to my aid, / I will be grateful to thee all my life. / I will honor thee as my special patron, / I will thank God for the graces bestowed upon thee / and will encourage devotion to thee according to my power. Amen
St. Jude, Pray for Us! And for those who invoke thy aid!
In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.
