And Jesus said He loved him so
And gave a special Light
To shine on those who suffer so
Within His Heart so Bright

The Saint who offers miracles
When nothing can be done
He is the Saint who offers hope
When in this life there's none

I ask him oh so humbly
While down on bended knee
Touch the hearts of those despaired
Who feel life's misery

I intercede with special prayer
To ask St. Jude to share
The power of his Blessed Gift
For all who feel despair

With hope and love I beg him now
To speak to God for me
Ask him for the healing prayer
Life's miracle to see.

Most holy Apostle St. Jude Thaddeus,
Faithful servant and friend of Jesus,
The name of the traitor who delivered
Thy beloved Master has caused thee to be
Forgotten by many, but the Church honors
And invokes thee universally as the patron
Of hopeless causes, of things despaired of.

Pray for me who am so needy; make use,
I implore thee, of that particular privilege accorded
To thee 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 suffering, particularly

Lorraine Anne Mucklin
and all who suffer in life

And that I may bless God with thee
And all the elect throughout eternity.
I promise thee, O blessed St. Jude,
To be ever mindful of this great favor, and I will
Never cease to honor thee as my special
And powerful patron and to do all in my
Power to encourage devotion to thee.
~ Amen ~


Our Father, Hail Mary, and Glory be to the Father.
St. Jude Thaddeus, pray for us and for all

who invoke thy aid.

Special Note

My sister Lorraine has always had a deep devotion
to St. Jude Thaddeus and because of that I have
added this special prayer to her site. A prayer
not only for her, but for all those afflicted in life
with pain and suffering. May you find the comfort
in his prayer and in his love.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart

Lorraine passed away on February 18, 2003.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you

all for your kindness and love that you so

graciously offered during her short battle with

cancer. Her daughter's and I will be extremely

grateful for the "love" that you shared with us

during this difficult time, for a very long time to come.


We thank you from the bottom of our hearts

for the beauty of you all.

"I met a stranger one day who became my friend,

Then I realized that in life there truly are "no strangers"

but gentle hearts that truly know the meaning of

kindness and love". For this I thank you from the

very depths of my heart and soul.
