Patron Saint of Lost Causes

This past Friday was the Feast Day of Sts. Simon and Jude.  St. Jude, of course, is the patron saint of lost causes.  There were times in the past week when I felt certain aspects of my life were lost causes.  I’ve been given reason to hope there may be hope on the horizon, though, so I’m just going to try to trust in God and His timing.  But saying a Novena to St. Jude certainly can’t hurt.
 To Saint Jude, Holy Saint Jude, Apostle and Martyr, great in virtue and rich in miracles, near kinsman of Jesus Christ, faithful intercessor of all who invoke your special patronage in time of need.  To you I have recourse from the depths of my heart and humbly beg to whom God has given such great power to come to my assistance.  Help me in my present and urgent petition, in return I promise to make your name known and cause you to be invoked.  Saint Jude pray for us and all who invoke your aid.  Amen

  1. Amen, amen, amen.

    My sister put this on Facebook this morning and well, I think it rings true: In life, things don’t happen “to” us, things happen “for” us.

    =)

    1. What a difference one word makes! I’ve got a lot of potentially stressful situations coming up this week, I’m going to keep reminding myself that these are things that are happening FOR me. Thank you!!

  2. I came for a visit from Spiritual Sunday.great posting.I have decided to start following you in my reader.Blessing my friend.A note not all my posting are nice ones.I have rants and other stuff as well.

  3. I didn’t know there was a patron saint of lost causes. We need to know if we trust Jesus there will be no lost causes – at least no lost causes that need to be causes at all.
    I’m glad you shared with us on Spiritual Sundays.
    Blessings,
    Charlotte
