Ok so this is going to sound very woo but... I have been going through quite a tough time over the past year and on another forum was recommended to do a nine day Novena to St Jude, the patron saint of hopeless cases. You can find details of the Novena prayer online, there are slightly different ones and you end by saying 3 Our Fathers, 3 Hail Mary's and 3 Glorias.

I can't tell you how healing this has been for me over the past 9 days. I have tried pretty much everything over the past year to lift this weight off my shoulders and in the past 9 days so much has already changed in my life, it is unbelieveable.

I wanted to start this thread to both recommend the Novena as well as use this thread to give thanks to St Jude for his assistance.

Please please don't write on this thread to disagree with my beliefs, instead start a new one. This has meant so much to me and part of the Novena is to thank St Jude and it would be lovely to have a thread dedicated to thanking him for anyone who has found this prayer helpful.

So thank you, thank you St Jude flowers

"I promise, O blessed St. Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor, to always honor you as my special and powerful patron, and to gratefully encourage devotion to you by publishing this request. Amen."

Im a Christian, and while I don't pray to the saints, I find so many lives inspiring and uplifting. My favourite saint is St Brendan, the "wild goose", who set out from Ireland in his little coracle to let God take him wherever He wanted.

I'm glad you've found comfort with St Jude. Just remember that with God, there are no totally hopeless cases!

Thanks ladies. God has been at my side...even when things were so bad I almost lost my faith I didn't smile but this novena just gave me that extra boost. Can't explain it. It just is and it feels great. [Flowers] St Jude

My mum regularly does a novena to St Jude, for all sorts of things that seem hopeless. She absolutely swears by it.

Thanks for the suggestion - I've got such a hopeless situation to deal with at the moment I'm going to give it a try. Please don't anyone else ask St Jude for anything, he's going to be fully occupied helping me.

Thank you St Jude for giving me strength and hope. Bumping this to spread your name.

So pleased that this has helped you. My aunt is a great fan of St Jude and this has helped her through some extremely dark times.

I know someone with heart trouble who was hmm by being offered a St Jude pacemaker Still doing well though..... grin

MrsB, he's welcome to delegate or delay my novena request though wink

(it's important and looking quite hopeless, but we could wait >9 days if need be)

thanks St Jude. Similar (but worse) situation in BF life has (totally unexpectedly) taken a really massive turn for the better. How's that for a broad hint that the impossible can be done! And only day 7 grin
