The one who receives my commandments, and fulfills them, is the
one who loves me; and the one who loves me will be loved of my Father: and I
will love him, and will manifest myself to him.
Judas, not the Iscariot, said to him: Lord, why are you
going to manifest yourself to us, and not to the world?
Jesus responded: the one who loves me, will
be faithful to my word, and my Father will love him; we will go to him,
and will dwell in him.
The one who does not love me is not faithful to my words. The word
you have heard, is not mine, but of the Father, who sent me.
I tell you these things while I remain with all of you.
However, the Paraclete, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in
my name, will teach you everthing, and will make you recall everything I,
Saint John 14:21-26
Translated from the Vatican Spanish Holy Bible
Prayer to the Holy Spirit
Come Holy Spirit, and fill the hearts of your faithful,
and kindle in them the fire of Your Divine Love.
Send forth Your Spirit, and they shall be created,
and You shall renew the face of the earth.
O God, Who taught the hearts of the faithful
by the light of the Holy Spirit,
grant that by the gift of the same Spirit
we may be always truly wise and ever
rejoice in His consolation.
In the name of Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen
Prayer to Saint Jude for Conversion
Dearest Saint and my adopted Patron, and Defender of the
Faith against heretics, I bring to thee the lukewarm, the
faithless, and those bereft of all hope spiritually, those
who deny the Truth as taught by Jesus Christ through the
Apostles and His holy Church, and those who struggle to
In particular I bring to thee my family members, relatives,
friends, acquaintances, and
neighbors who are outside of the Faith, for whatever reason,
and for now who are beyond my reach; all Jews and Muslims,
all pagans and unbelievers of other inclinations; and
especially, those who are no longer practicing
Catholics or who have never been Baptized.
I beseech thee for their conversion through whatever means God
wills and you can work through Him. I ask this through the Sacred
Heart of Jesus Whom you still serve faithfully in Heaven.
O Saint Jude, you are beloved and trusted for your countless miracles
of grace and healing. Look down kindly one more time upon this little
sinner who asks so much for so many, although unworthy to ask, yet is
compelled by love to do so; and thanking you for your kind help. In the name of Jesus Christ Our Lord, in unity
with the Holy Spirit. Amen
Prayer for Help in Trials
O Saint Jude Thaddeus, faithful servant and friend of Jesus,
the name of the traitor who delivered thy beloved Master into the
hands of His enemies has caused thee to be forgotten by many, but
the True Church honors and invokes thee universally as the Patron
of Hopeless Cases, of things almost despaired.
Pray for me, as I feel so helpless and alone. Make use, I implore thee,
of that particular privilege granted to thee to bring visible and
Come to my assistance in this great need, that I may receive the
consolation and succor of Heaven in all my necessities, tribulations
and sufferings, but in particular, (make your intention) and
that I may praise God with thee and with all the Saints forever.
I promise thee, O blessed Saint Jude, to be ever mindful of this great
favor and never cease to honor thee as my special and powerful patron,
and to do all in my power gratefully to encourage devotion to thee. Amen
Prayer in Grievous Affliction
O Glorious Saint Jude, relative of Jesus and Mary, faithful
Apostle and Martyr, renowned for thy virtues and miracles,
faithful and prompt intercessor for all who honor thee and
trust in thee, powerful patron and helper in grievous affliction, I
come to thee and entreat thee with all my heart to come to my aid,
for thou hast received from God the privilege of assisting with manifest
help those who almost despair!
Look down upon me: my life is a life of crosses, my days are full of
tribulation, and my paths are strewn with thorns - and scarcely one
moment passes but is witness of my tears and sighs. My soul is enveloped
in darkness, disquietude, discouragement, mistrust - yes, sometimes even a
kind of despair preys upon me.
Divine Providence seems lost to my sight, and faith seems to falter in my
heart. Overwhelmed by these thoughts, I see myself surrounded by a dark cloud.
Thou cannot forsake me in this sad plight! I will not depart from thee until
thou has heard me. Oh, hasten to my aid! I will thank God for the graces
bestowed upon thee, and will propagate thine honor according to my power. Amen
Prayer for Spiritual Help
(The Prayer of Sinners)
O Holy Apostle, Martyr and servant of Jesus Christ,
Saint Jude Thaddeus, you did spread the True Faith
among the most barbarous and distant nations and did
win to the obedience of Jesus Christ many tribes and
peoples by the power of His Holy Word.
Grant, I beg you, that from this day I may renounce
every sinful habit, that I may be preserved from all
evil thoughts, that I may always obtain your assistance,
particularly in danger and difficulty, and that I may
reach the heavenly country, with you to adore the Most
Holy Trinity, God Our Father, His Son Jesus Christ Our
Lord and Holy Ghost, forever and ever. Amen
Prayer to Saint Jude
O Glorious Saint Jude Thaddeus, by those sublime prerogatives,
wherewith thou was ennobled in thy lifetime,
namely, thy kinship with Our Lord Jesus Christ
and thy vocation to be an Apostle;
by that glory which now is thine in Heaven
as the reward of thine apostolic labors and thy Martyrdom:
obtain for us from the Giver of every good and perfect gift,
all the graces whereof we stand in need,
in order to treasure up in our hearts
the divinely inspired doctrines,
which thou has transmitted to us in thy Epistle; in order
to build our edifice of perfection upon our most holy faith,
praying by the grace of the Holy Spirit;
to keep ourselves in the love of God,
looking for the mercy of Jesus Christ unto eternal life;
to strive by all means to help them that go astray;
exalting thus the glory and majesty, the dominion and power of
Him Who is able to keep us without sin and to present us spotless,
with exceeding joy at the coming of Our Divine Saviour,
the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen
Prayer of Praise and
O MOST SWEET Lord Jesus Christ,
in union with the unutterable praise
with which the Most Holy Trinity extols
Itself and which thence flows upon Thy
Sacred Humanity, upon Holy Mary, upon all
the Angels and Saints, I praise, glorify
and bless Thee for all the graces and
privileges Thou has bestowed upon Thy
chosen Apostle and beloved friend,
Saint Jude Thaddeus. I implore Thee,
for the sake of his merits, to grant
me Thy grace, and through his intercession
to come to my aid in all my needs. Especially
at the hour of my death, deign to strengthen
me against the rage of my enemies. Amen
