A Novena for Impossible Causes

New here? Join us in prayer! Click here to get novena reminders by email!

Our next novena is to a saint who does the impossible.  

That’s seriously what he’s known for — answering impossible prayers!

He’s the patron of hopeless, lost and impossible causes… 

It’s St. Jude :)

We will start praying the St. Jude Novena on Monday, October 19th.

We know that this year has felt impossible for so many, so we’re looking forward to seeking St. Jude’s intercession with you.

You can share your prayer intentions in the comment section below.

Saint Jude was one of Jesus’ twelve original apostles. He is also known by the name Thaddeus, which means sweetness and gentleness of character.

Saint Jude followed Jesus faithfully until His crucifixion, and then later worked on evangelization.

Very little is known about his life, but we do know that he died as a martyr — some say around 65AD, giving his life to Jesus Christ.

He is now one of the most invoked saints for intercession in desperate situations because his New Testament letter stressed the importance of a faithful person persevering in the environment of harsh circumstances.

God bless you!

  26. A most dear friend of mine must soon leave her marriage. She has hung on for 20 years trying to hold it together but in that course of time she went off on her own as well into another relationship and it seems that the reason was at least partially for revenge.

    At this time there is hatred between the two. They must split for some peace of mind and to save their family. Life is a war a zone for them.

    She has no monetary support nor can she afford housing of any kind. Lawyers are very expensive for her and she is desperate.

    If our Lord can perform a miracle that would provide her living expenses housing and money for her children she could go on her own and start fresh.
    Without she can only return to be the 2nd relationship she got herself into and that will be without don’t another toxic and destroying venture.

    She has lost most of what spirituality she had and blames God and marriage vows , and the church because for so many years she hung on and prayed and prayed for God to rescue her and in her mind she is DONE .

    She is angry with God.
    Can you please pray that a miracle bolt of lightning should provide her with the financial means tob move out with her children and save what is left with their lives.
    Thank you for your prayers.
    I love her with all my heart and I see no hope in the horizon.
    Please ask God for a miracle.
