St. Jude

Br. Arturo Olivas, OFS

Artist's Narrative:
Most holy apostle St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor who delivered your beloved Master into the hands of His enemies has caused you to be forgotten by many, but the Church honors and invokes you universally as the patron of hopeless cases, of things almost despaired of.

Please 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 (mention your request), 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 and to always honor you as my special and powerful patron, and to gratefully encourage devotion to you. Amen.

His feast day is October 28.
