How to pray the Chaplet of St Jude
Introductory Prayer on the Medal:
St. Jude, glorious apostle, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor has caused you to be forgotten by many, but the true Church invokes you universally as the patron of things despaired of; pray for me, that finally I may receive the consolations and the succor of heaven in all my necessities, tribulations and sufferings, particularly (mention your request), and that I may bless God with the elect throughout eternity.
On each bead pray one Hail Mary and the following:
St. Jude, Apostle, Martyr and Relative of Our Lord Jesus Christ, of Mary and of Joseph, intercede for me.
Concluding Prayer of the Crucifix:
O Holy St. Jude, Apostle and Martyr, great in virtue and rich in miracles, near kinsman of Jesus Christ, faithful intercessor of all who invoke your special help in time of need. To you I have recourse from the depth of my heart and humbly request assistance. Help me in my present and urgent petition. In return, I promise to make your name known and cause you to be invoked. St. Jude, pray for us and all who invoke your aid. Amen.
St. Jude is the parton saint for: Desperation, Hopeless Cases & Impossible Situations.
