St. Jude, glorious apostle, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor has caused you to be forgotten by many. But the Church honors and invokes you univesally as the patron of hopeless cases, and of things despaired of. Pray for me who am so miserable. Make use, I implore you, of that particular privilege accorded you to bring visible and speedy help where help was almost despaired of. Come to my assistance in the great need that I may receive the consolation and succor of heaven in all my necessities, tribulations and sufferings, particularly --- (here make your request) and that I may bless God with you and all the elect throughout eternity. Amen.
