  1. Answered prayers for a Novena to St. Jude,
    I said a novena to St. Jude, but do not know how/where to go to thank him. I prayed for my husband to have his hip pain alleviated. He went for a cortisone shot. It helped take most of the pain away & he doesn’t feel as crippled & is more comfortable.Thank you St. Jude, I know you hear my prayers even if I’m in the wrong place.

  2. I was worried about my Job’s Audit but all went successfully. And my company had not paid Bonus & Increment since last 4 years. Finally, today we received the letter of these remuneration. I had offered these intentions through This Novena. Thanks St. Joseph and everyone who prayed for me and Thanks be to God.


  3. I am writing to express my gratitude to St. Joseph’s intercession.
    At the start of the novena in March l placed two special intentions before him: to find a stable job and to meet a good man for marriage and prayed through for these two. However on his feast day, something happened. After attending mass in honor of this great feast on Monday 20th/ March, I headed down to the bank where l met with a former boss that had deeply hurt me in 2018. Well to the best of my recollection l thought l had forgiven them but for my heart to pound when l saw her revealed to me that l still had some unforgiveness in my heart. Well l summoned courage to say hello did what l had to do at the time and left. What struck me though is that from then l have felt a great sense of relief to the extent that while l didn’t ever want to bump into them ever l now have a great sense of freedom and it does not really bother me if they meet with me or not. I still continue to pray for my two intentions but thank St Joseph for lifting this weight off me and l believe that’s a great step towards having my prayers answered. Amen

There are other requests I have placed in his hand and I know he will obtain these graces for me from his son, Jesus Christ. Thank you St. Joseph!

  45. After finishing this Novena that I was for my two sons my son called me and told me that after two years off work, due to the pandemic, he was offered a job. The best part about this is that he got the job at the place he has been hoping for years to get.

  63. My daughter applied for a job she really liked and was what she needed. She went for an interview and it went well but was not accepted. She was very disappointed and dejected. I had been praying the novena to St. Joseph for this job for her. I continued praying but instead I asked for St. Joseph’s intercession for them to call her back with an offer from the same place. The next day they called her and offered her the job she was interviewed for. St. Joseph thank you for your intercession; this job was not only because of an economic reason but also for her emotional health. I thank you everyday and everyone. Thank you Father.

  64. During St. Joseph Novena, which I dedicated to 4 fathers, the one not attending Mass called to get his sons confirmed at our church instead of his church (“too many requirements, not welcoming”) and our Pastor offered to do the confirmations, and marry him in the Church.
    I left the novena on the kitchen table and my husband started praying it! He’s a troubled soul.
    The third dad “allowed” his wife to visit with her mother and bring both grandchildren at a park (she’s not allowed at their house).
    Definite steps under St Joseph for these hurting and troubled men, whose wives and children suffer because they do not put God first.
    I am continuing to pray the St Joseph Novena because of the answered prayers and the long way to go. I love you St Joseph, thank you.

  65. I was started praying the St. Jude’s novena, the day after my best friend had a terrible accident. He has fracture his spine at the level of the neck.

The doctors believe it to be a miracle!

  77. My sisters breast cancer came back after 7 years and this time it was different type. The best option for her was to have a double mastectomy and reconstructive surgery on 3/21 the day after the novena ended. She is now cancer free and her recovery was painless the doctors even said they never saw anyone recover so quickly and also friends of hers that had the same surgery can’t believe how well she did… St. Joseph is my grandmothers patron Saint so I always had a strong devotion to him from watching her strong devotion. Thank St. Joseph for your intercession my sister had her surgery the day after your Saint Day was celebrated this year and I know this was no coincidence this was meant to happen like this thank you again for your intercession and please continue to watch over her as will never stop praying to you!
