The Saint of Hopeless Cases
O most holy apostle, St. Jude,
Faithful servant and friend of Jesus,
The church honors and invokes you universally,
As the patron of hopeless cases,
Of things almost despaired of.
Pray for me, I am so helpless and alone.
Make use, I implore you,
Of that particular privilege given to you,
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 consolation
And help of heaven in all my necessities,
Tribulations, and sufferings,
Particularly -- (state your request here)
And that I may praise God with you
And all the elect forever.
I promise, O blessed St. 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.

St Anthony can help you find something you lost
The Souls In Purgatory need YOUR prayers!
Submit the names of those you want to remember and prayer requests to the Capuchins
