Novena to St. Jude Day 8

I talked briefly with my cousin this morning. His wife should be able to come home on Friday. The baby has been going through a series of health crises but they've been getting progressively less serious and farther apart. She's still got a long way to go before she's out of the woods even if she does end up surviving.

O holy Saint Jude, apostle of Christ, pray that we may ever imitate the Divine Master and live according to His will. May we cooperate with the grace of God and ever remain pleasing in His sight. Especially do we ask you to plead for us and obtain whatsoever is necessary for our salvation. Forget not our special petitions:

The health of my cousin's daughter

May we always be thankful to God for the blessings we have received in the past. Whatsoever we ask for the present or future, we submit to the divine will, realizing that God knows best what is good for us. We know He will respond to our prayers and petitions in one way or another.


St. Jude, pray for us!
My Jesus, mercy!
