" When you love someone, you love them in sickness and in health and you will offer heartfelt prayers to make them well again. There is power in the prayers said for someone you love more than life itself. Try St. Jude."



When the going gets tough, and it very often does

Have recourse to Saint Jude, he will always answer you

The Patron Saint of desperate cases, reach out to him now

When no one else will help, he will come on right through


Turn over your cares and worries to him

Trust him to answer all calls

The more the impossible the task, the easier he'll find it to do

Give your burdens to him, and he'll gladly solve them all


My mom descended into the grave, clutching his picture true

Thats how much  blind faith, she entrusted unto him

So if you are in deep trouble, with no solution in sight

Pray to Saint Jude immediately, and consecrate yourself to him

Saint Jude is one whose aid is sought when all hope is lost, especially in grave health matters and life-and-death situations. It is customary to make a vow that if he helps when called upon, one will publish a notice of thanks in the newspaper. Thus there often appear in the Personals column of newspaper classified ads ex-votos to this effect. The typical wording is a terse, "Thank you, St. Jude." Each one of those notices represents a prayer that was answered by Saint Jude. Interesting post, Peter.
