O Glorious Apostle, St. Jude Thaddeus,
true relative of Jesus and Mary,
I salute you through the most Sacred Heart of Jesus.
Through this Heart I praise and thank God
for all the graces He has bestowed upon you.
Humbly prostrate before you,
I implore you through this Heart to look down upon me with compassion.
O despise not my poor prayer,
let not my trust be confounded.
To you God has granted the privilege
of aiding mankind in the most desperate cases.
O come to my aid, that I may praise the mercies of God.
All my life I will be grateful to you
and will be your faithful client until I can thank you in heaven.
St. Jude, help of the hopeless, aid me in my distress.
