Dear Saint Jude, I am lost and cannot find my way. I am in the process of trying to find employment that will suit me and the needs of my family. Due to unfortunate misunderstandings and the painful experiences leftover from my previous work experience I feel that I am left with very little self confidence or self esteem. I am afraid. I look to you to guide me through this darkness and trust in you to show me the way to where I am supposed to be. My working again will help to lift the heavy burdens felt by my husband and will help our little family regain what we once had and, possibly, improve beyond that. H.N., CO
SJNS: We ask for St. Jude's inspiration, comfort and support for her in this search.

O most glorious apostle St. Jude through the Scared Heart of Jesus. God has granted you the priviledge of aiding mankind in the most desperate cases. Please help my daughter be well liked, respected, accepted, including socialy with her peers in school.

And any ugly rumor anyone has hung onto or started unjustly will disolve and be forgotten. Please help her start over this year and keep her boy-friend close to your heart as well as my daughter.

St Jude, please help Rick and I find our ways back together. We always had a really strong relationship before his son left us to walk with Jesus. Please help him to realize that his son is now in a better place and is safer than he has ever been. Please help Rick work through his grief and learn to live again hopefully with me in his life. I love him so much as do my own sons. Please help us. I am so desperate and miserable without him. Kim, Allentown, PA

Dearest St. Jude The past year has brought me so much pain. I turned to God for guidance and the strenght to move on. I have fallen truly in love with a friend who has helped me so much overcome my past marrage. I pray for guidance in my life and my relationship. The man I have fallen in love with is under a lot of pressure and stress with work and family. I ask of you to let us walk the path of life together and grow to become one. He means so much to me and I want to spend my life with him, raise a family with him, grow old with him, and have an unconditional love that no one could break. I know he loves me and I pray that he will soon realize what he could have with me and open his heart to me. I pray that he could love me for who I am and spend his life with me in holy matrimony. I pray for us to have a healty relationship and family. Thank you St. Jude and Jesus Christ our Lord. Cortney
SJNS: St. Jude, pray with us that they may know the true fruits of their love.

I rescued a cat 4 years ago from a home that neglected her and in which the kids would kick her down the steps. I have grown very attached to her over the past 4 years. I am getting married next year and my fiance is allergic to cats. My fiance has been told by an allergist to get rid of my cat and that allergy shots would not help. We scheduled to see an ENT specialist for a second opinion and possible alternate therapy. I am praying for a miracle that somehow God will allow me to keep my cat. Please Saint Jude, interceed for me in my time of need. R.F., PA

WEEK OF 09/01/2003
Blessed Apostle St. Jude, we call upon you for help in hope and utmost confidence. St. Jude, renowned help of the hopeless, come to my aid in this time of distress. St. Jude, cousin of our Lord, obtain from our Savior the favors I now need and seek, especially to cure my husband, Glenn, of the demons in his mind so that he may have a long life of happiness and contentment rather than one with torment and uncertainty. Remind him of how wonderful he is, that he has so much to offer others, and that he is loved by many people. Please help him get over his obsession with a certain entertainer's posting board and help him to find a decent-paying niche in the writing field. Nancy, New Jersey
SJNS: May St. Jude touch his heart, soul and spirit.
Dear St. Jude, patron Saint of Miracles and Hope, I have asked for your help in times past and you have helped find answers to the problems I sought solutions for. And, the solutions always seem to come in incredibly miraculous ways. Now, once again, I ask you for your help and intercession in God's Grace to overcome my despair, distress, depression and helplessness more than ever before. The nature of my circumstances, which cause me such a mental frame of mind, is derived from my working as a loan collector at a bank and the weakness in our economy. I ask for your direct help and intercession that I may receive God's Grace to successfully collect the problem loans for my employer. And, for those loans where litigation is involved, I ask for help that the bank will prevail. I know these problems are far beyond the control of any one person or persons and the economy has to turn around to improve their situation, but time is not enough for such an improvement to help them now. The borrowers find it difficult to profit and thus make repayment, and, therefore, it will truly take a miracle to turn these matters around for the borrowers and for our bank. Your help and intercession in solving this problem quickly will relieve me of the stress I undergo. Please help me collect these loans soon. I make the promise to make your name known throughout the world and publish any miracles that may come our way. Please help. Ed.
SJNS: May St. Jude bless him in his work.
Dear St. Jude please help my son. He hasn't been feeling well lately and went to see the doctor. Blood was drawn and many tests were performed and for the most part were in the normal range; some were slightly elevated but not enough to account for his symptoms. My prayer is that the symptoms will go away and he'll feel like himself again or that he will find a doctor who will be able to diagnose his problem and treat it. RAS, Mass.
SJNS: St. Jude, please pray with us over the health of her son.
