A Prayer of Enlightenment to St. Jude Thaddeus

In these unprecedented times, all we need is a dose of enlightenment.

The world is in a dark place at the moment because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Our knowledge about the new coronavirus is very limited, and that makes it rightly frightening.

Like some terrible ghost, this pandemic causes fear and helplessness to others. That’s why in these unprecedented times, we need a dose of enlightenment.

Prayer to St. Jude

Most Holy Apostle St. Jude Thaddeus, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor who delivered your beloved Master into the hands of the enemies has caused you to be forgotten by many, but the Church honors and invokes you universally as the patron of hopeless cases and of things despaired of.  Pray for me who am so needy; make use, I implore you of that particular privilege accorded to you to bring visible and speedy help where help is almost despaired.  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 mention your petition) and that I may bless God with you and all the elect throughout eternity.  I promise you, O blessed Jude to be ever mindful of this great favor, and I will never cease to honor you as my special and powerful patron and to do all in my power to encourage devotion to you.  Amen.
