Novena to St. Jude Thaddeus and St. Pio of Pietrelcina (Thursdays)

Saint Jude Thaddaeus

Novena to St. Jude Thaddeus (Thursday)

Oh my God, I firmly believe that You are really and corporally present in the Blessed Sacrament of the Altar. I adore You here present from the very depths of my heart, and I worship Your sacred presence with all possible humility. O my soul, what joy to have Jesus Christ always with us and to be able to speak to Him, heart to heart, with all confidence. Grant O Lord that I, having adored Your divine majesty here on earth in this wonderful sacrament, may be able to adore it eternally in heaven. O glorious apostle, St. Jude Thaddeus, true relative of Jesus and Mary, I salute you through the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus! Through this Heart, I praise and thank God for all the graces He has bestowed upon you. Humbly prostrate before you, I implore you through this Heart to look down upon me with compassion. Oh despise not my poor prayers; let not my trust be confounded! To you, God has granted the privilege of aiding mankind in the most desperate cases. Oh, come to my aid, that I may praise the mercies of God! All my life I will be grateful to you and will be your faithful client until I can thank you in heaven.

Leader: Blessed Apostle with confidence, we invoke you!

All: Blessed Apostle with confidence, we invoke you!

Leader: St. Jude, help of the hopeless, aid us in our distress!

All: St. Jude, help of the hopeless, aid us in our distress!

Pray for us, that before death we may expiate all our sins, by sincere repentance and the worthy reception of the holy sacraments! Pray for us, that we may appease the Divine Justice and obtain favorable judgment! Pray for us, that we may be admitted into the company of the Blessed to rejoice in the presence of our God forever! Most Holy Apostle, St. Jude Thaddeus, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor who delivered our 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 and of things despaired of.

Pray for us who are so miserable; make use, I implore you, of that particular privilege accorded to you to bring visible and speedy help where help is almost despaired of.

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… (silently make your request) … and that I may bless God with you and all the elect forever.

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.

Leader: St. Jude Thaddeus, pray for us…

All: and for all who invoke your aid!

Novena to St. Pio of Pietrelcina (Thursday)

Saint Pio of Pietrelcina Statue at Saint Pio Chapel in Bagumbayan, Quezon City, Philippines taken by Judge Florentino Velasquez Floro, Jr.

Dear Padre Pio, for fifty years your body bore the wounds of Christ and you suffered willingly as a victim for others. You never took off the crown of thorns yet always had time to talk, to listen and to pray. Intercede for me now for you once said, “As the pearls are held together by a thread, thus virtues are held together by charity; as the pearls fall when the thread breaks; thus virtues are lost if charity diminishes.” Amen.

Prayer for Healing

Lord Jesus, You said, You did not come for those who are well. You came rather to console us who are suffering. You came for us who are in pain because of our own weaknesses. You came to heal our body, heart, and soul.

O Jesus, we know that there is no sickness, no illness that You cannot heal as long as You will it. We know how much You love us that You offered even Your own life to save us from anything that enslaves us.

O sweet Jesus, through the prayers of Your humble servant Padre Pio, through whose prayerful intercession You have granted his children countless miraculous healing. I beseech You, please heal me. Please heal my wounded soul, mind, and body. My Jesus, my Lord Jesus, I have been suffering for so long now; please have mercy on me.

Only say the word and I shall be healed.

(Silently pray for your personal intentions)

Prayer to St. Pio of Pietrelcina

O God, You gave Saint Pio of Pietrelcina, Capuchin priest, the great privilege of participating in a unique way in the passion of Your Son, grant me through his intercession the grace of…

(mention your intention) which I ardently desire; and above all grant me the grace of living in conformity with the death of Jesus, to arrive at the glory of the resurrection.

O Jesus, full of grace and charity, victim of sinners, so impelled by Your love for us that You willed to die on the Cross, I humbly entreat You to glorify in heaven and on earth, the servant of God, Padre Pio of Pietrelcina, who generously participated in Your sufferings, and who loved You so much and labored so faithfully for the glory of Your heavenly Father and for the good of souls. With confidence, I pray that You grant me, through his intercession the grace of… (mention your intention), which I ardently desire. Glory be... ( 3x )
