Novena toSaint-Jude

Dear friends ofSaint-Jude,
Dear pilgrims of the heart,

The theme of the great 2005 Pentecost novena will be:


Nowadays, with the abundance of telecommunications we are overly informed. We are so in a way that we have difficulty in distinguishing what interests us and, above all, what is fundamental. Communications from Heaven are faster and more performing that those of this world and are, above all, essential to our life…and our «life there after! ». Among the great communicators from the after-life, the Virgin Mary is the best! Even if she is not very talkative in the gospels, she has said enough that we know that she takes care of those Jesus has entrusted her from the Cross. She takes care of them with care and love.

During this novena, let us listen to the Lord, because that is what Mary invites us to do when she says: «Do whatever He tells you…»

And to help us understand what He means, all of us united, day by day, we will say the following prayers, forming a gigantic prayer network.

Prayers for the Pentecost novena

In the shadow of your mercy,
we take refuge, Holy Mother of God.
When we are faced with hardship,
do not despise our prayers,
but deliver us always
from all dangers,
Glorious Virgin, Blessed Virgin.
(The most antique Marian prayer, found in the 3rd century)
Remember, O merciful Virgin Mary,
that you have never abandoned
anyone that had recourse to you,
begged for your protection or asked for your help.
Lead by such confidence,
O Virgin of virgins, O my Mother,
I run to you,
wailing under the weight of my sins,
I bow down to your feet.
O Mother of the Incarnated Word,
do not reject my humble prayers,
but heed and grant them
in my favour. Amen
(Prayer attributed to Saint Bernard de Clairvaux)
Come, Holy Ghost Creator, come.
From your bright heavenly throne!
Come, take possession of our souls,
And make them all Your Own!
You who are called the Paraclete,
Best gift of God above,
The Living Spring, The Living Fire,
Sweet Unction, and True Love!
You who are sevenfold in you grace,
Finger of God's right hand,
His Promise, teaching little ones
To speak and understand!
O guide our minds with your blessed light,
With love our hearts inflame,
And with your strength, which never decays,
Confirm our mortal frame.
Far from us drive our hellish foe,
True peace unto us bring,
And through all perils guide us safe
Beneath your sacred wing.
Through You may we the Father know,
Through You the Eternal Son,
And You the Spirit of them both
Three times blessed Three in One.
Now to the Father, and the Son
Who rose from death, be glory given,
With You, O holy Comforter,
Henceforth by all in earth and heaven. Amen.
Saint-Jude, Our Lady’s companion at the Cenacle,
you who has drawn from the fountain of her Immaculate Heart,
the wisdom that comes from silence and prayer.
Intercede in our favour, all the days of our life
and grant us the graces we ask of you….(pause)To the One who is God,
And by Jesus Christ our Lord
Gives us salvation:
Glory, grandness, power and supremacy,
Now and forever. Amen.Saint-Jude, pray God for us.
