Saint Jude has become known as the patron of desperate causes because he is the saint we pray to for intercession with God when nothing else has seemed to work. Because his name is often confused with Judas Iscariat, the betrayer of Jesus, attention to Jude has been neglected throughout history. Here at last is a beautiful novena to this almost forgotten saint.
Each day of the novena offers guided imagery, reflections for meditation, and prayers on some aspect of spirituality gleaned from the little we know about Saint Jude's life as an apostle and probable relative of Jesus. Anyone who needs a friend to intercede with God for particularly difficult favors will cherish this devotional pamphlet.
