|Dear Friend of St. Jude,
I invite you to join us in prayer during the Solemn Novena to St. Jude for Healing, August 12th—20th.
As word of Jesus’ healing spread, people came great distances to hear Him speak and with hope of being fortunate enough to possibly feel His touch. Some of the people who came were in need of healing, but many who came were caregivers—concerned family and friends—praying in support of their loved one.
During this special Healing Novena, we will offer petitions to St. Jude to help our family and friends experience the gentle and healing touch of Christ.
Today I have sent you all nine days of prayer in one message. Please save or print this message and return to it each day of the Solemn Novena to St. Jude. You can also view the Novena prayers on our website and send your petitions to the altar of St. Jude.
DAY 1 — Saturday, August 12th
Today we center ourselves in peace as we begin nine days of Solemn Novena prayer. St. Jude listens to our prayers and offers us hope for every intention.
On this 19th Sunday in Ordinary Time, we come together in prayer with a special intention to St. Jude.
On this third day of Solemn Novena prayer, we join together in the belief that there is power in praying with and for one another’s petitions.
On this fourth day of Solemn Novena prayer to St. Jude, we come together in prayer with our special intentions to St. Jude.
On this fifth day of Solemn Novena prayer, we remember all of God’s children throughout the world in need of healing as we offer our prayers together.
Today we give ourselves over to trust in God as we begin the sixth of nine days of Solemn Novena prayer to St. Jude.
Today we begin the seventh of nine days of Solemn Novena prayer by asking St. Jude for his intercession, and then for God to hear our petitions.
On this eighth day of Solemn Novena prayer, we offer our prayers together. Today I recognize how my Novena makes me stronger in faith and grace.
Today we mark the 20th Sunday in Ordinary Time as we begin the ninth and final day of Solemn Novena prayer with an intention and prayer to St. Jude. We are so grateful for this time to offer our petitions to St. Jude.
Yours in prayer,
Fr. Mark Brummel, CMF
Director, St. Jude League
