Jerry will be traveling to a Catholic radio pledge drive on Tuesday, so Debbie will be all by herself. Well, not completely alone. She’ll be joined by Jon Leonetti of Iowa Catholic Radio. They’ll talk about how we need to cultivate close relationships with the saints, who often become our “heroes.” The saints are not people who lived “a long time ago.” They are alive in Christ, just as we are. Thus, we can communicate with them and ask them to pray for us. Share your take on how you relate to the Church’s saints on Tuesday with Debbie and Jon Leonetti!
PRAYER TO ST. JUDE
Most holy Apostle, St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the Church honors and invokes you universally as the patron of hope.
Please intercede on my behalf. Make use of that particular privilege given to you to bring hope, comfort, and help where they are needed most.
Come to my assistance in this great need that I may receive the consolation and help of heaven as I work with my challenges, particularly (here make your request). I praise God with you and all the saints forever.
I promise, 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.
