St. Jude Thaddeus is the Patron Saint of Hope

St. Jude Thaddeus was one of the first disciples to join Jesus. He was one of the twelve Apostles at the Last Supper and after the Lord’s resurrection, traveled the world to bring the good news of salvation. St. Jude brought a message of hope — often in the most difficult circumstances. Known as the Patron Saint of Hope, the power of his intercession is legend.

Today, people all over the world turn to St. Jude in times of urgent or desperate need. He is invoked in times of need and for serious or seemingly hopeless causes — including depression,grieving, unemployment, and illness. He is traditionally depicted carrying the image of Jesus in his hand which represents the imprint of the divine Countenance that was entrusted to him by Jesus.

Through our faith in God and St. Jude’s intercession, we can hold on to the hope that even the impossible can be overcome and our prayers will be heard. We can find healing, and we can find the strength to meet the challenges in our lives that seem too heavy to bear or too impossible to manage.

May the hope of St. Jude remain alive in your heart in all you do.

St. Jude Intercession Prayer

Most holy Apostle, St. Jude, faithful servant, and friend of Jesus, God has granted you the privilege of aiding in hopeless and desperate cases. I am in need of your compassion! I implore you; come to my aid and intercede on my behalf. Amen.

Prayer to St. Jude

May the Sacred Heart of Jesus be adored, glorified, loved and preserved now and forever. Sacred Heart of Jesus have mercy on us. St. Jude worker of miracles, pray for us. Saint Jude helper and keeper of the hopeless, pray for us.   Thank you St. Jude.  Amen.
