Saint Jude Helped Danny Thomas to Become a Big Star!


Danny Thomas
[b. at Deerfield, Michigan on Saturday, January 6, 1912 –
d. at Los Angeles, California on Wednesday, February 6, 1991]

It was like a miracle, the way it happened!
You believe in miracles, don’t you?!
(Danny Thomas)

Below is a summary of the many Testimonials so many people have sent to me over many, many years concerning how Saint Jude Thaddeus has answered their Novena Intentions as the result of my making Novenas for their Intentions.

passing exams;
being protected from harm while on active military duty (especially in Iraq and other such countries);
getting a job;
getting a visa;
selling a home;
buying a house;
spiritual, physical, mental, emotional, psychological healing;
improvement of a relationship;
getting a compatible marriage mate;
help for one's Parent or Child;
being healed from a major disease (several have reported being healed from cancer and other serious diseases);
not needing minor surgery for a physical problem;
not needing major surgery for a physical problem (in at least one case, a person had the proof of her miracle in the form of the before and after X-Rays which proved her instant and total truly miraculous cure - her words!);
moving to a better climate;
being accepted by a certain institution of higher learning;
getting a job promotion;
keeping one's job;
moving from one country to another;
many special intentions known only to the persons requesting the Novenas to Saint Jude;
many, many Novenas of Thanksgiving to Saint Jude for one or more intentions granted by Saint Jude;
many other things.
Some people have asked me to remind everyone that Saint Jude Thaddeus is a powerful intercessor with God on behalf of those for whom their 9 Day Novenas are made here at the Shrine of Saint Jude.  They tell me how they themselves have personally experienced his most powerful intercession in their own lives.

Some people have told me that they agree with Danny Thomas and sometimes ask other people, who doubt the powerful intercession of Saint Jude, the same question Danny Thomas would ask doubting people:

"You believe in miracles, don’t you?!"
Thank You, Saint Jude!

The Shrine of Saint Jude thanks Saint Jude Thaddeus for all
of his great Blessings and Miracles it has received over the years!
St. Jude Thaddeus
Thank You, Saint Jude!!!

Father Michael,

Thank you for your help. I do see positive things happening like getting $$$$ I did not think I was going to likely receive, especially so quickly. I would have been in a very difficult financial place without that coming through! I thank God for His Mercy working through you even though I do not personally merit any Divine favor especially of this magnitude.

Very importantly, the ...... cancer that my Mother has was downgraded from Stage 2 to 1 during surgery after I had sent a request for just one novena to be done. She suggested that it would be beneficial to seek St. Jude's help through you as a Priest of God and I am very glad that I did!

I also see where things, that have been especially difficult with my ........ studies, are getting better. I have also noticed much more peace ...... I have been using different sources of support in the Church, but I really do notice things deeply improving when I ask for your help. It is like just sending, or even making, the intention to send a request with the stipend has brought about very powerful responses that get even more powerful once I follow through. I am very grateful for the novenas and prayers that you have done on my behalf and I pray for even more novenas and masses to be done.

It is especially a great blessing that my stipend arrived just in time for you to do each one of those additional special, and separate, Masses on my behalf on St. Jude's Feast day.

I thank God for your helping me in this special way and the way God works through you!

God Bless!

Editor's Note

Lest there not be any misunderstandings, after I finished each of the totally separate Annual Solemn Nine Day Novenas to Saint Jude for those who took part in the Annual Solemn Nine Day Novenas to Saint Jude, which ended on the Feast Day of Saint Jude, October 28, 2014, I then Offered a Mass for all of these Annual Solemn Nine Day Novena Intentions to Saint Jude. All of these totally separate Novenas, followed by the Mass, were all part of the final conclusion of the Annual Solemn Nine Day Novenas to Saint Jude on October 28, which ended on the morning of October 28, 2014.

It was not until later, during the afternoon of October 28, 2014, that I received the "extremely urgent express mail" envelope from "C" in which was the request for several Masses to Saint Jude for the stated intention in that mail. Since it was still the Feast Day of Saint Jude, and since I have special "faculties" for Offering more than one Mass on the Feast Day of Saint Jude (for obvious reasons), and because of the urgent nature of the intention of these Masses, I then Offered each of these totally separate Masses for the stated intention in the paperwork included inside the "extremely urgent express mail" from "C", and, therefore, it is these later Masses of October 28, 2014 to which "C" refers in the above Testimonial to Saint Jude, and hence not part of the earlier morning Mass on October 28, 2014.

Dear Father Michael,

As a nurse working in a hospital one has a variety of responsibilities and duties regarding patients.  But this is a case where I was going to be the patient but, thanks to St. Jude, I was not!

Briefly, I needed major back surgery because of lifting and turning patients for many years as part of my duties in a hospital.  This was to help to prevent certain patients from getting hypostatic pneumonia.  I was depressed thinking about the surgery.  The radiologist showed me my X-Rays and exactly where the problems were in my back.

I really needed a miracle, and fast, because I could not financially afford to lose any time from work, even though now I am working at a Clinic.

Thanks to St. Jude I got my miracle - a 100% total miraculous cure - after only HALFWAY through the Novena to St. Jude!

That this is a real and true miracle is verified by at least two facts, that my cure was instantaneous, and also that there is photographic evidence to prove it is a real miracle, namely a comparison of all of the before X-Rays of my back with the after X-Rays of my back!

By the way, the radiologist (the person who actually reads the X-Rays) could simply not understand what had happened when he showed me the new X-Rays of my back!  He kept shaking his head in disbelief as he held one of the old before X-Rays, which showed I needed major surgery on my back, next to one of the new after X-Rays which showed my entire back was 100% normal!  The new after X-Rays proved that no surgery of any kind would be necessary!

I hope this gives everyone reading my testimonial the confidence they need to get St. Jude working for them and then to believe and then to expect their own miracle!

SKR

Editor's Note:  For the record, the term hypostatic pneumonia is something real:

Hypostatic pneumonia means pneumonia that usually results from the collection of fluid in the dorsal region of the lungs and occurs especially in those people, such as the elderly and the bedridden, confinded to a supine position for extended periods.

Dear Father Michael,

Please publish my Testimonial to Saint Jude as my thanksgiving for answering yet another of my Novenas. I had asked Saint Jude to help me to solve an issue which involved helping my kids with their homework. I had asked the Great Saint, in three Novenas, for this specific purpose and I asked him to answer my Novenas with the confidence that he would listen to, and also answer, this intention.

Father Michael has told me to focus on "when" Saint Jude would answer my Novenas rather than on "if" he would. I have listened to his advice and kept my trust in Saint Jude.  Saint Jude has rewarded me by answering my Novenas in a quick and satisfactory way. Thank you Saint Jude!

Please continue to help me and answer my additional Novena intentions, especially the ones regarding my active role in the Legion of Mary and also the conversion of ..............

Dear Fr. Michael,

Here is my Testimonial for my own Mission Impossible, with emphisis on Impossible, which ended up a total success due to St. Jude!  Please publish it.

I needed some help with a really important project on which I was working.  This project really helps many people in several different ways.  However, I needed some items which are very difficult and almost impossible to find.

Your Novenas to St Jude for my intention really worked!  I really need to call it a miracle because it had gotten to the point where it become totally impossible for me, before St Jude's help, which was not for a lack of total determined trying on my part, time and time again and again!  I felt like I was in my own personal episode of the Twilight Zone TV series, that is until St Jude came to my rescue.  St Jude turned my Twilight Zone into a Mission Impossible episode with complete success for me!

A humble and sincere Thank you St Jude!

R.D.

Dear Father Michael,

A really big "Thank You Saint Jude" for your great help with a very serious financial situation.

Father, as the result of the Novenas you have made for me, Saint Jude inspired me and guided me how to solve my terrible problem.

I can not recommend Saint Jude too much to everyone reading this Testimonial. You have lots and lots of other Testimonials on this web page and this is what gave me the courage to send you my Stipend for those Novenas for you, Father, to make for my intention.

Enclosed is another Stipend for some Novenas of Thanksgiving to this great Saint!

Thanks again, Saint Jude! And thank you also, Father Michael for making the Novenas to Saint Jude for my intention!

Forever grateful! J.M.

Dear Father Michael,

I am sending you my testimonial to the Great Saint Jude as a thanksgiving for his recent help in answering one of my Novenas.

I have been asking the Saint to intercede for me in granting my heart's desire to become an active member of the Legion of Mary. After several Novenas for this intention and many prayers, I got my wish granted and I am now part of the Legion.

It wasn't an easy task for me to do this. I almost gave up a couple of times during my three month's probation period for several different reasons; I am still experiencing some difficulties, but with the help of Saint Jude and the Blessed Mother I am confident that my prayers will be answered one day and I will be a good active member at Mary's service.

In a special way I need to thank you, Father Michael, not only for doing these numerous Novenas on my behalf but also for always being so kind to me. You have been helping me greatly. May God always bless you!

Thank you Saint Jude for your help in answering this most precious Novena.

D.V.

Dear Father Michael,

St. Jude has given me so much help over these last few months in many areas of my life. I would have to take the time to contemplate to begin to give the appropriate detail. I can tell where my life typically is difficult there have been more openings. I still have plenty of challenges but I can tell where I am getting much more help from St. Jude where I am being supported against all that has been a problem for all my life.

For example, I did notice some better rearranging of my financial affairs this Monday morning. I had the feeling that in asking again for more of St. Jude's help that I would begin to notice things getting better just by mailing out the Novena form to you.   I also noticed an improvement in another very important personal matter.

Thanks St. Jude,

C.

P.S.  Please post to your Testimonials to Saint Jude.

Father -

As you requested, I just want to let you know that St. Jude has worked a financial miracle for our family!  I asked you to pray a novena for a very special financial intention - one that should have been resolved years ago, but a certain government agency was taking an approach and made a decision that thwarted my ability to receive what was justly due to me.  I even had to bring a lawsuit to attempt to recover what was mine.  Well, within days after you prayed the novena to St. Jude on my behalf, a high level appeals court issued a decision absolutely and completely in my favor, and the court ordered the agency immediately to authorize the requested payments.  Thank you so much for praying on my behalf, and thanks to St. Jude for his wonderful intervention for my family!

Sincerely,
R.G.

Dear Father Michael:

Just 4 days, - four days,  after you began my Novena to Saint Jude, my very desperate, difficult situation, was no more!  Gone!  History!  Thank God and St. Jude!  My Novena Intention was granted!  Incredible!

When looking at Testimonials I saw this:

"as you may know, I respect your close relationship with God through the intercession of St. Jude and the many other saints."  Agreed, unbelievable, just 4 days.  It was super difficult, almost impossible, terrible worry, terrible depression, couldn't sleep.  Thanks heaps!

God bless; sending more Novena requests in the mail today.  I know these too will meet with divine favor through St. Jude.

m.m.

[Editor's Note:  How quickly one's Novena Intentions are answered by Saint Jude always varies. Sometimes, they are answered very quickly, as in this case, sometimes not as quickly.  But it always requires sincere and hopeful faith, trust, and confidence in Saint Jude's intercession with God for one's Intentions.]

Fr Michael,

I came, I saw, I read, and I requested Novenas to St Jude.  Thanks.  I am not good with patience, but Saint Jude helped me not give up!

Success finally came!  My faith was tested.  I won, rather God and St Jude won.

Thanks for your encouragement and your persistent  "never give up"!

I listened to you, trusting your advice, so like the others,

Thank you God and St Jude - you are the "Saint of the Impossible"!

Humbly,

A.D.

Dear Father Michael,

Starting late January 2013, I began to study for the B2 spanish exam which was to be given at a local University in Madrid, Spain.  I had already been living in Spain for a year and a half, and so I felt it time to put all my Spanish and learning and knowledge to the “test.”

The test was in May of 2013 and so I began to study.  The Novena to St. Jude was to give me spiritual help. I have always had academic anxiety and I was really nervous about the test. Although having grown up in a spanish speaking environment and even being fluent before having gone to Spain, I nevertheless had a lot of “gaps” that needed to be filled (i.e grammatical rules, auditory comprehension, writing, reading, etc). So I thought my time in Spain would be beneficial in helping improve all those aspects of my Spanish and being able to get the B2 certification. In hindsight my time in Spain was beneficial!

But leading up to the exam, and then having to go through the anxiety of waiting for my results, was truly an act of perseverance and patience. So starting from late January until the end of August when the results were due to be published for all those who took the exam in May.  More help from St. Jude was needed.

Much to my dismay, however, my results weren’t made available to me in August. So I had to wait till mid November, 2013, before I finally heard anything. The university where I took the exam finally contacted me and asked for my mailing address here in the States. I gave it to them and in 2 or so weeks later my Diploma arrived!

I was beyond joy when the Diploma came! Tears flowed and I had an ear to ear grin all day. This was truly a very real and personal spiritual encounter that I had and I wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world!

St. Jude will always have a friend and ally in me, I will do my best to give thanks to him and more importantly to God, Whom we all serve.

So the major lesson here was perserverance and patience.

There were times where I felt like giving up and despairing that I would never pass the test and ergo receive the B2. I thought negatively that I wouldn’t amount to anything if I didn’t pass and that my 2 years in Spain would have been for naught.

But St. Jude and God sure proved me wrong. I hope those reading my testimonial and the testimonials of others realize that hard work and staying faithful is more than half the battle.

God, and with the interecession of St. Jude, will certainly carry you the rest of the way. But you must put in your effort first and give it more than the old college “try.”

God Bless,

N.G.

A Most Special "Thank You" to Saint Jude for helping me with a situation which seemed to be virtually impossible!

Saint Jude came through with a very difficult project that was thought to be hopeless! Words are not adequate to express my personal gratitude for his very speedy help which came through in less than one hour - which is extremely very, very rare, even under the very best of circumstances, whether for anyone else, or for myself!

I promised Saint Jude that if he did this - and I was in a really desperate situation - that I would publish this personal Testimonial for all to read.

So he did and now I have fulfilled my promise to him - in my mind it really was a "miracle" and this is what I told the other people who were also involved!

Thank You, Saint Jude!

Dear Father Michael,

Many thanks for your Novenas to Saint Jude.  My Step-Son found a Lady to marry him who was willing to accept his two young children and to be a Step-Mom to them.  The catholic church wedding, followed by a reception, was last Saturday!

That was a real "miracle" since none of the other Ladies he had been dating wanted to be the Step-Mom for his young children.

It is also very evident that they both have lots of compatibility with each other, and really care for, and truly love, each other.

They have known and dated each other for over the last three years.  So there were many other reasons for them to marry each other than just the young ones!

Here is a stipend for some Novenas of Thanksgiving for, what you wrote up above:

- to use their own word (this is NOT my word) - a "miracle" in their own personal lives for Intentions which they obviously considered to be "impossible" even for Saint Jude
so yes, "miracle" is MY word and you have MY word on that!

Thanks again and God bless you always.

J.R.

Feel free to use my feedback! Happy holidays and blessings to you, Father.

It's amazing how God never fails. St Jude never fails either.

Thanks for your assistance with the Novena because it indeed worked, Father.

We did not sell our home, but Gods plan for us was to rent. We believe this renter will be an honest one and we understand this is in Gods time not for me to sell.  With that said, we are fortunate enough to close on our home and settled last Sunday :)

Thanks for all your support!

Father Michael:

I want to let you know that St. Jude has been quite helpful in my studies. Things that were not going right before suddenly started coming together and going right. I got perfect score on my final which was something I did not see as happening before. It seemed as if all the scenarios that I was being presented to analyze was based on things I had been working on so I was prepared even though the case studies could have presented a seemingly infinite number of possibilities. I saw the Hand of God making it possible for me to not only pass the class but to do well. I got an `A` in a class that I was at high risk of failing when I first made the request for help with studies.

I also got an extension to handle the last research paper that was overwhelming me. This is another Grace from St. Jude.

  ........ (very personal data omitted) ......    to help catch up with my finances.

I was able to get   ........ (very personal data omitted) ......   a student loan in place which took approval from a supervisor from the business office as an exception which allowed me to register for class and remain on track to be enrolled in the program without having to   ........ (very personal data omitted) ......   . The   ........ (very personal data omitted) ......    approval was given to transfer credit from 4 classes from previous studies. I did not know the financial hardship that was going to cause at the time   ........ (very personal data omitted) ......   .   ........ (very personal data omitted) ......    classes would be transferred in   ........ (very personal data omitted) ......   . Well, I'm grateful for the financial help from St. Jude in untying that very terrible financial knot. I'm now registered for classes for next semester when that seemed like such a distant possibility when I asked for the financial help from St. Jude.

  ........ (very personal data omitted) ......    wrote me today about meeting on Monday to talk after only getting occasional communication and basically ignored since November 18th.

Permission is granted to post all of this testimony.

God Bless,

Father Michael:

Those Novenas you do to St Jude are awesome!  Wow, made me believe.  Got what I needed.  Much thanks.  Put my thanks form in mail you should get in a few days.

D.D.

Father Michael,

I sent another Novena Request about financial assistance and the prayers are being answered even before the Novena form reaches you.

My retirement pay out from ........ (very personal data omitted) ......   and FINALLY got the information together needed to process the refund after approximately a month of resistance.

........ (very personal data omitted) ...... also offered financial assistance in a way that I was hoping  ........ (very personal data omitted) ......  but was not sure it would happen.

I can not help but noticed this happened the day after I sent the Novena Form  ........ (very personal data omitted) ......   I also seem to have a greater sense about how to handle my studies instead of feeling so overwhelmed ........ (very personal data omitted) ...... which is a first step forward. I also got good quiz results and feedback from my professor on material I felt very overwhelmed about.

........ (very personal data omitted) ...... I'm seeing it would be good to have more Novenas done. I plan to send out a request for one within the next day or so.

I also plan to send out further Novena prayer requests towards the end of month when ........ (very personal data omitted) ......    This will be giving me the Grace of having resources needed to get my finances back on track when I just felt so overwhelmed about what to do next.

God Bless,

C.

PS: I give permission for all my testimonies to be published.

Dear Father Michael,

Thanks St. Jude for listening to my prayers. I have asked for several Novenas and some were answered. I am so grateful and I promise I will continue to trust in you!

Dear Father Michael:

Things were not going so good for one of my sons until after I requested some Novenas to Saint Jude.  Now it is like his problem never were.

Here is a stipend for my thanksgiving Novenas.

L.

Father Michael,

I want to express thanks for your novena prayers and St. Jude's help in cooperation with God's wonderful Grace in helping me to get a job when I saw nothing but difficulties and struggle that were suddenly made as if these struggles were never an issue. I know without Divine Intercession from St. Jude that I would be in alot worse shape financially. I have gotten my first check from the new job at a very critical time.

From that first check I now sending a Novena Request and for further financial help and help with my studies which have entered into a stormy critical juncture that could go either good or very bad for me. St. Judes help in these areas would be greatly appreciated !

I am also happy to report that things between me and D. continue to get better than it ever was before! I am very grateful for St. Jude's intercession in the situation between me and D. St. Jude's intercession made a very huge difference. The situation is too big for me on my own; however, the situation is very much now a very profound blessing through God working through His Saints!

Thank you very much for your prayers. Your prayers before St. Jude as a priest is a priceless blessing beyond what I am capable of measuring.

May God continue to Bless you for being such a wonderful instrument of His Grace and Mercy in cooperation with Saints and ultimately with God Himself !

God Bless,

C.

Dear Father Michael:

I am enclosing my Novena Intentions to Saint Jude Thaddeus, along with my check in the amount of $10.00 for one Novena.

By the way, after our Novena to St. Jude for financial assistance, our financial situation has quadrupled in assistance!  And my mother is rarely in her room at the assisted living center after her two Novenas to St. Jude.

Truly miraculous.

Thank you.

Dear Father Michael

Thank you very much for including my friend's 3 year old son in your Novena to Saint Jude.  The little boy is currently getting radiation treatments once a week. So far the cancer has not spread. So thank you so much for the prayers and my deepest thanks and gratitude to St. Jude for this great miracle of the cancer not spreading.  He truly is a miraculous saint of the impossible!

Thank you in the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary.

S.A.

Dear Father Michael,

I am again thanking St. Jude and the Blessed Mother for interceding for me during a time of trials and tribulations.

 I have found that such times are really not "tribulations", but blessings.  For every trial brings me closer to God.  I receive many gifts-a deeper faith, more trust in God, humility, obedience, a stronger prayer life, and an ever deeper love of Mary, the Holy Trinity, and all of the saints, and angels who intercede for us.

For all of this, I am so thankful.

Thank you again for your ministry.  I always add you in my prayers.

E.S.

Hello Father,

Its me again!  I should have written to you a long time ago.

Well our friend [Saint Jude] seems to have done it again!

I sent you a Stipend a while back for my Mom.  Well, she was in the hospital for the same old problems.  The doctors couldn’t figure out what was wrong at all!

Well, like I said, I sent you that check to say a Novena [to Saint Jude] and since then she seems to be getting better!  No pains, no vomiting, no nothing!  And, it seems like she can eat again, too!

So once again: “Thank you Saint Jude!  Thank you so very much!  You are a very good friend!  Thank you! I just don’t know what else to say but THANK YOU!”

Your friend,

T.

Dear Father Michael,

I know that you publish letters and use these to instill Faith in those who have very little Faith, especially very little Faith in the powerful intercession of Saint Jude.

For those of you reading this, truly believe in the power of prayer, especially the 9-Day Novena prayers to Saint Jude!  I have had so many Novena prayers answered through the intercession of St. Jude that they are too numerous to name all of them here.

But, in order to give you a little insight, here are a few brief examples:

The first one is that my Daughter finally graduated from College in .......... and is now working in her chosen profession in the State of ...........  Although our Faith was tested many times, she did succeed largely due to the Novenas prayers to St. Jude.

The second is another situation concerning my Daughter which also had a very happy and successful outcome likewise due to the Novenas prayers to St. Jude.

A third is a Blessing concerning my job.  Your Novena prayers kept me working longer that I could have imagined under very difficult conditions.

Fourth, I finally got Justice in my favor regarding a certain very unfair situation. which was also job-related.

I know that your 9-Day Novenas to St. Jude work miracles and so I am asking that you pray to St. Jude that I find another job.  I am regretful that I am having to leave this job due to "retirement", but I still have to work at least one to two more years before I can get my "retirement".

Although I am not expecting to earn as much as I am now, I would like to find a job with reasonable security which would give me at least some reasonable income and which would also provide insurance benefits.  Times are hard right now here in my State (as well as in other places), but I have great Faith, Hope, Trust, and Confidence that your Novena prayers to Saint Jude will find me employment in ..........

Again, Father Mike, thank you so much for your prayers and kind words.  You are truly God's agent on this earth.  Your rewards, if not here, are immense in Heaven.

I parting, I am expecting my first Grandchild through my Son..... whose Wife is due in .........  I am also asking for some Novenas to Saint Jude for my Daughter-In-Law's safe delivery.

Again, may God Bless you and hopefully this small donation will help your mission work.

God's Blessing to you and your missions.

C.C.

Dear Father Michael,

I'm writing to express my deep gratitude to St. Jude for his intercession to help me to find a job.

I was out of work for 5 months. My Wife told me to request the 9-day Novena to St. Jude from you.

On the  9th day, I received a very good job offer!

Thanks be to God and thanks be to St. Jude!

Also, thank you Father Michael for making that most powerful 9-Day Novena to St. Jude for me!

[Editor's Note:  It is very rare to have one's Novena Intentions granted so quickly with only one Nine-Day Novena to Saint Jude!  Most of the Testimonials on this web page came about as the result of a number of Nine-Day Novenas to Saint Jude.

Also, there is no such thing as an "average" number because the actual reason(s) why the good God and Saint Jude usually require a number of Nine-Day Novenas to Saint Jude vary considerably from person to person.

However, over the years, I have noticed - in some special cases - that one's Novena intention(s) can be "speeded up" under certain conditions which "work" in some cases, but not always in every case.

Here are but two of these conditions which, although they have helped "speed things up" for some people, have not always "worked quickly" for others.  Some such people have:

1)  Promised Saint Jude to send us a Testimonial for this Testimonial's web page when one's Novena intention(s) are granted.  This is why there are a number of Testimonials on this web page from the same people.

2)  Promised Saint Jude to send us a Stipend for at least one Novena of Thanksgiving every month of the year on an on-going basis.  I have noticed that those who do this, usually get any "new" Novena intentions to Saint Jude granted more quickly!

Dear Father Michael,

How can I begin to try to express my thanks to St. Jude for his great help in answering all of my 9-Day Novena intentions!

Thanks to your words of encouragement at not giving up, St. Jude worked his "miracles" in my life.

I would like to encourage everyone reading this to know that St. Jude is for real and, most important, St. Jude worked "miracles" for me in my life and I feel so confident that he can do the same for you, too!  I am nobody special, and yet St. Jude helped me - a "nobody"!  You are "sombody" and St. Jude should have a much easier time helping you than he did me?!

Thank You St. Jude!

Enclosed, please find a small donation and another Stipend for more of your great 9-Day Noveans to St. Jude for my additional intentions for these additional powerful 9-Day Novenas as listed on the form.

G.F.

Dear Father Michael,

I've been out of work for 6 months desperatrly looking for work and as a single Mom it's been very stressful.

A short time ago, my landlord asked that I pay half of what I owe him in back rent or I'd be evicted with no place to go. I also got notice that my car would be repossessed for non-payment.

I sent you my Novena requests for your nine day Novenas to St. Jude because I saw no way out...  Well by the Grace of God and St. Jude's intercession, I can testify that through the kindness and generosity of 2 wonderful people, my rent will be paid in full and so will the car note.

My prayers have been answered and I am humbly grateful.

Thank you St. Jude from the bottom of my heart.  You will continue to be my Patron Saint.

Thank you Father Michael for making the wonderful Novenas for me to Saint Jude.

K.M.

Dear Father Michael,

A special Thank You to Saint Jude, and also to Our Blessed Mother, for granting all of my Novena intentions.

I had suddenly found myself in a critical and scary health situation and thus the reason for my requesting that you make the Novenas to them for my intentions to help me. They did help me and I know they are always with me and are still helping me through my recovery. They are also helping my children and my husband.  May God bring him back to his faith and also restore his health too.

With all my love, I had promised publication of my Testimonial to Saint Jude concerning all of the Novenas you made for me and for my intentions at the Shrine of Saint Jude.

D.G.

Dear Father Michael,

I am writing to thank you for taking the time to pray on my behalf.

St. Jude has answered the prayer regarding my son.

St. Jude has definitely helped me and my son by answering our prayers.

I would like to thank St. Jude for answering these prayers.

St. Jude, I thank you, thank you, thank you always.

Very best regards,

J.

Dear Father Michael,

My Daughter recently lost her job.  She is a single Mom with two beautiful children. Her marriage was a tumultous one and when the safety of the children became an issue, she divorced the father of these two.

As a result of the Novenas to St Jude, my Daughter found out today that she will be employed again.

Thank you dear St. Jude for all of our blessings.

St. Jude is forever with me as I wear his medal daily.

A special "Thank You" to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and to Saint Jude for their great help with a computer problem which was finally fixed today!

Now I can finally get "back to work"!

Father Michael

Fr. Michael,

Your Novenas to St. Jude for me came through and I am most grateful.  It seemed like an impossible situation, but St. Jude really does work, like other people say, "miracles".

In gratitude, please accept my Stipend for xx Novenas to St. Jude in humble, yet grateful, thanksgiving!

Keep up the good work.

Now I am a believer!  I hope this testimonial will help make other believers too!

Dear Fr. Michael,

A most special "Thank You" to St. Jude Thaddeus for answering a number of my 9-Day Novena intentions you made for me over the last few months at your Shrine of Saint Jude!

Without any hesitant doubt whatsoever, not only do I believe in real miracles, but, thanks to you and your Shrine of Saint Jude Thaddeus, St. Jude has really performed a number of true and real "miracles" for me these past few months!

I am so filled with joy, I want to tell the whole world!

For example, I desperately needed to get something which is very essential for my business, because without it, I am out of business.  Bottom line - with total trust, confidence, and faith in the powerful intercession of St. Jude, I went into the store that had what I needed, even though I had only a few dollars in my pocket and I needed over $xxx.00, but with no idea where I would ever get that much money at one time.

After placing my order with total faith, trust, and full confidence in God and in St. Jude, I walked next door to take care of some other business matters and, the speed with which St. Jude worked was astounding and nothing short of a "real miracle", because, in less than five minutes, I ended up with the full amount of the money I needed to pay for the item I had just ordered next door, plus I even had some additional money to buy some basic groceries like bread, etc.!

My abundant "Thanks" to St. Jude and also to you for making my Novenas for me to St. Jude!  You are doing wonderful work!  Keep up your good work!  All I know from my own personal experiences with you over the years is that St. Jude really listens to you, Father!

Enclosed is my Thanksgiving Stipend for ten, 9-Day Novenas of gratitude to St. Jude, plus a donation for all of your excellent efforts in making those Novenas for me!  I know from past experience, if I make a really big deal out of thanking St. Jude, boy do I get fast results the next time I have you make some 9-Day Noveans of petition to St. Jude for my intention!  I look at my Thanksgiving Novenas as a kind of "investment" that will bring me great "returns" next time I need help!

That reminds me, I do have a new intention for some more 9-Day Novenas to St. Jude for a very special intention.  So, also enclosed is a Stipend for xx 9-Day Novenas to St. Jude for this super special intention.

Forever grateful to God and to the miracle-working St. Jude!  My heartfelt-appreciation to you, Father, as well!

J.M.

[Editor's Notes:

Editor Note # 1:  To J.M.  Thank you for sharing your "miracle" Testimonial to Saint Jude.  I am very happy for you!  This simply proves that one must never give up but always "believe", just as others have said in some of their previous Testimonials!

Editor Note # 2:  To our Visitors:  The Testimonials you read on this website, including those in which people have received what they themselves (not me) call a "miracle", simply proves time and time again that the Catholic Religion is the one, true, Supernatural Religion instituted by God the Son, Jesus Christ.

For the record, Testimonials like the one above and some of the others on this website, are classical examples of what some Catholic Theologians call "Heroic Virtue" which is a very, very Special Grace of God.

This Special Grace of God, under normal circumstances, does not just "happen", but requires proper preparation.  Some Theologians are of the opinion that this proper preparation includes the frequent exercise of the Virtues of Humility and Meekness, as well as Faith and Hope in other areas of one's life.

Some people, who have never had an opportunity to learn about the Spiritual Life, mistakenly think that a Novena to Saint Jude means that the Novena prayers "empower" Saint Jude to, virtually speaking (not physically, of course), twist the arm of God to answer one's Novena intention!

The reality is that, by the Grace of God, when a person is sincere and tries to live a life of real Virtue, which includes Humility and Meekness, plus being obedient to God's Laws - the Ten Commandments (God does not reward bad behavior!), and try to live a Spiritual Life which includes at least a few prayers every day, plus attending Mass on all Sundays and Holydays, etc., and seek the Face of God, i.e. frequently Blessing God, Thanking God, and Loving God, rather than always seeking God's billfold (called having the gimme's), one thereby become's God's friend, not His enemy.  Plus, acts of supererogation (doing things you are not required to do because you love God) make one a very special friend of God whom God Blesses first.

Finally, Heroic Virtue is a very Special Grace which is very calm and peaceful.  Any emotions come after one has received God's Blessing, which is sometimes called a "miracle" by one who receives it, especially as the result of the 9-Day Novenas to Saint Jude.

On the other hand, those who are new to the 9-Day Novena devotion to Saint Jude, should find this devotion to be a wonderful opportunity to humbly request what one needs from Saint Jude who intercedes for each person's intentions before the Throne of God.

The good news is that no one should think that they need "Heroic Virtue" to get an answer to their prayers and Novena intention(s)!  For example, some Catholic Theologians teach that all that is really necessary for the ordinary, average Catholic is only ordinary, average Faith and Hope to obtain all for which they ask in their prayers, which includes, of course, the 9-Day Novenas to Saint Jude.

But the best news of all is what Christ Himself teaches:

"Amen I say to you, if you have faith as a grain of mustard seed, you shall say to this mountain, Remove from hence hither, and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible to you" (Matthew 17:19).
Remember, a "mustard seed" is so very, very tiny that you can hardly even see it!  In other words, Christ is saying that even if the only Faith you have is no bigger than a teeny, tiny grain of mustard seed, your Novena intentions will still be granted!

In conclusion, also remember that Saint Jude has an excellent record of getting people what they need as is proven from all of the Testimonials here, both all of those below, and also the one above!  Then you, too, even if your Faith and Hope are no bigger than the teeny, tiny grain of mustard seed, according to the teachings of Christ Himself, can believe in "miracles"!]

Dear Father Michael,

I just wanted to let you know that Saint Jude has answered my novena which you began for me.

All along I have been praying for the settlement of a lawsuit for a medicine that I and many other people took that actually harmed us because the pharmaceutical companies did not alert us of the danger of this drug. This lawsuit has been going on for three years and many of the people harmed have died. I have been praying for a long time that this will be settled soon.

But even though this has not happened yet, I realized that Saint Jude answered my "financial aid" novena by sending me someone who needed help cleaning her house and helping her with her filing of paperwork, etc. She offered me $xx.00 an hour and I was so shocked that she would pay me this much.

It might only be temporary but it will definitely help me out for I am trying to make it on my own at 62 years of age. I am blessed that God gave me good health to do this work and I know it was Saint Jude who sent this opportunity my way.

Thank you so much, Father Michael, for all your help and also for making the second nine day novena for me.

My deepest gratitude,
R. P.

Dear Father Michael,

I have been requesting Novenas to Saint Jude at the Shrine for my intentions for years now. As a result, Saint Jude is now my special patron.

Recently, a Novena was made asking for my Mother to find additional and steady work (in addition to the job she has now).

I cannot believe how perfect the job she found was!!!!  Not only that, but she found the job on the second day of theNovena! The Lord works fast!!

In this economy, picking up another job does not always happen easily, we are so blessed for this opportunity. I know that the Lord answered my prayer because of the intercession of St. Jude on my behalf.

Ask for his help in prayer, you will receive it!!

A.

Dear Father Michael,

Evidently, as a direct result of yet another novena (for financial help), a check unexpectedly arrived that had been written for a substantial amount which was sufficient to defray all the additional expenses I had recently incurred.  The timing and quantity of this were incredibly coincidental -- much too coincidental to have occurred merely by chance!

D.S.

Dear Father Michael,

Guidance and motivation seem to have been received that have redirected my efforts to studying during a "window-of-opportunity" from one or more previous novenae; the successful completion of the first such course has been achieved, apparently from a different novena, resulting in the attainment of a basic and necessary certification.

D.S.

Dear Father Michael,

Thanks to St. Jude and Immaculate Heart of Mary Novenas and Masses for helping me in some difficult things!

Thank you Father Michael for making it possible for me and others to have you make these Novenas and offer Masses for us.  May God grant that you will be able to continue to still do these things for many more years!

J.

Dear Father Michael,

Thanks for making the Novenas to Saint Jude for me.  As always, Saint Jude came through in a difficult situation I was having!

Respectfully, with deepest gratitude,

M.

Dear Father Michael,

Saint Jude came through yet again because of your Novenas!

In great appreciation and thanks,

J.M.

Dear Father Michael:

I am sending you a check for $---- as a thank you for all the many blessings which my family has received from God through the intercession of St. Jude.

I very much enjoyed the story about Danny Thomas in your monthly paper....

Would you please say a novena to St. Jude for my daughter that she do well in her finals next week? It is a miracle that she is still in the program as it has been difficult for her. I know that prayers to St. Jude have helped her immensely.

Also, please say a novena to St. Jude for me for ................

Again, as you may know, I respect your close relationship with God through the intercession of St. Jude and the many other saints. I cannot repeat that you will have a special place in heaven for all of the work you do to bring others to God. Hopefully my small donations will help you to continue your work in spreading the word of God and his many miracles.

God bless you Father Michael,

C.C.
 

Dear C.C.:

Thank you so very much for your Stipend for Novenas to Saint Jude and for your Donations!  Thank you also for your most thoughtful, charitable, and kind words concerning my humble work in spreading the Word of God, in spreading the Beautiful and Wonderful Teachings of the Catholic Church - the full magnificence and glory of which awaits all of us in the breath-taking beauty and joy and splendor and happiness of Heaven, and of God's many miracles, especially those performed through the powerful intercession of Saint Jude!

May your wonderful Testimonial inspire many, many others to Trust in God and in the great and powerful intercession of Saint Jude!

I also thank you for your great suggestion about including some information about Danny Thomas and his really inspiring devotion to Saint Jude and your wanting to share with everyone his personal enthusiasm for the miracles he got from Saint Jude and his heartfelt desire for others to also cultivate devotion to Saint Jude, especially with his question:

“You believe in miracles, don’t you?!”
You and your family have experienced your miracles from Saint Jude and so have so many, many others, as well as myself - so many, many times over many years!  And Saint Jude shall continue to work his miracles for you and your family, just as I know he will also do the same, not just for me, but for all of those who believe and trust in God and in Saint Jude’s intercession with God as the Patron Saint of difficult and impossible cases - a title Saint Jude got the old-fashioned way - he earned it!

May everyone who reads your Testimonials to Saint Jude, pause to really answer Danny’s question for themselves:

You believe in miracles, don’t you?!
God Bless You and Your Family!
Father Michael

Father Michael:

Thank you for your Novenas for me to St. Jude.

Many of my intentions were just granted today, all at one time!  Wonderful!!

I will not give up regarding the rest of my Novena intentions because, like Danny Thomas, I, too, believe in miracles!

Thanks be to St. Jude.

R.

As you know, I was very frustrated when I didn't receive a rapid answer to my novena intention. You told me to be persistent.

Thank you for that.  And, yes, St. Jude did answer my novena intention!  So, many thanks to St. Jude for helping to relieve a physical condition through his powerful intercession. I have hope and I believe that my other intentions will also be answered in God's good time now.

Thanks again!

L. B.

Dear Father Michael,

Please post this on your Testimonials Page. Thanks!

I am publicly thanking Saint Jude for answering three different Novena intentions so quickly!

I had asked St. Jude for the money I needed to purchase a very special, very inspiring, picture of Christ which I had wanted for many years, but never had the money to afford it. I ended up by being able to borrow the full amount of money I needed to get this extra-special picture of Christ. This all happened during my first Novena to Saint Jude. But then, Saint Jude gave me a totally unexpected "bonus", as Father Michael calls it!

During the middle of my second Novena to Saint Jude, which was for another intention, the person from whom I had borrowed the money for the special picture of Christ called me and cancelled my loan-in other words, because she had just received a large amount of money concerning a business transaction, as a way of her thanking Saint Jude for answering one of her Novena intentions for which the good Fathers at Saint Jude Shrine were also praying, I did not have to repay my loan to her!

Finally, my very much used and worn-out computer, which was no longer working properly, needed to be replaced. I arrived early for Sunday Mass at the Shrine of Saint Jude so that I could personally hand to Father my third Novena to Saint Jude. My intention regarding this third Novena was for a better computer; I was just so frustrated with that old computer which caused me all kinds of problems. The very next day, as I was helping Father with some errands, I stopped by a store to take care of some of my own personal business. Father happened to see an ad which had been posted to a bulletin board. A couple had a computer for sale. Father was so kind as to help me check it out. It was only about a year and a half old-well taken care of. The selling price was very reasonable. But I had no money for it. Father, poor as always, had no money either which he could loan me. That night I had a birthday party to attend for two of my grandchildren. I was able to borrow the full amount of money I needed from a relative and the next day-Tuesday-I had my almost brand-new computer, just three days into my 9-day Novena to Saint Jude! Since then I have received some money with which to pay off that loan in full!!!

THANK YOU, SAINT JUDE!!!

THANK YOU, SAINT JUDE!!!

THANK YOU, SAINT JUDE!!!

I have gotten answers to my Novenas to Saint Jude in the past at the Shrine of Saint Jude, but these are the most recent!

I have just given Father a new 9-day Novena to Saint Jude. I know I will get a favorable response to it as well because I have total faith, trust and confidence in God and in Saint Jude's POWERFUL intercession before the throne of the Most Holy Trinity!

EVERYONE should send in their Novena intention to the Shrine of Saint Jude! St. Jude has helped me so many times-I know he can help others, too!

YOU, too, will then be able to say with me:

THANK YOU, SAINT JUDE!!!

S.L.

I was in need of a chair with good lower-back-support. I found a very-well made chair which far exceeded what I had been looking for! Not only was the seat and back leather-covered, but I was able to get it at about half-price! In order to get it for this price, I needed a special coupon and, after digging through piles and piles of coupons, someone was able to find just what I needed! I got two miracles; the first was the special price and the second was one of the store-personnel actually taking the time to look for a coupon which took some time to find because it was the last coupon left!

Thank you Saint Jude!

Enclosed are more novenas to Saint Jude to help me with some other problems!

L.L., California

Dear Father Michael,

I thank God with all my heart for..... St. Jude giving immediate help to my sister. My sister lives in Canada as a caregiver. She wrote to me this July that she has been experiencing persistent pain in her back which she suspects as pneumonia. She had pneumonia which was treated before she arrived in Canada more than a year ago.

A few minutes ago, I received an e-mail from her telling me that the doctor she consulted today said her lungs are fine and the pain is due to muscle pains....

My Novena intentions........  that St. Jude would plead to God to heal my sister and that there is nothing seriously wrong with her lungs. I especially asked St. Jude to take care of my sister and her 3 daughters who were left behind in the Philippines.

Father Michael,  ..........   another Novena....   for my sister and her children most especially her eldest daughter who has special needs. They are without their mother to take care of them. The normal middle daughter is merely 12 years and the youngest is just 5 years old. My heart breaks everytime I think about their situation. I pray to our Lord Jesus Christ and the Blessed Virgin Mary to protect them from all evil.

May God continue to bless us all!

Sincerely,
MA

Thank you Father Michael for the wonderful novenas to St. Jude.

I have been sending my Stipend to you for the last 3 months for Novenas to St. Jude.  My prayer intention has been to have our second home in Hawaii refinanced. St Jude has answered my prayers.

1.  ........ Bank offered us a program that qualified us for refinance for 30 years fixed.

2.  The bank also offered to refinance our first home in California for an even lower rate.    Both our homes were approved for refinance.

3.  Also, my employer has been doing a lot downsizing.  I have been worried that I may lose my job.  But, ever since I started sending you Stipends for the 9-Day Novenas to St. Jude, my dept got real busy and lots of work keeps coming in.

Thanks to St Jude for answering my prayers.

R.S.

 
Father Michael:

I am sending you a check for an additional.... as a promise I made to St. Jude concerning my employment.  I am receiving another contract from my school for the next school year.  I know that this is because of the intercession of St. Jude.

I am also publishing this in a newspaper as well so that others may have faith and confidence of the power of prayers to St. Jude.  The only thing I can tell anyone is to

         Believe                     Believe                     Believe

This past year my family and I have been so blessed by your help and prayers and masses that I cannot thank you enough. Many events in my family's life would not have transpired without intercession...  A fellow teacher was fired this year because of his actions as a teacher.  I was very afraid that this [being fired] was going to happen to me as well.

The intercession of St. Jude came to defend me.  In addition, my Daughter, who did not have the absoute best grades in her college class was able to get a coop at a paper mill.  Some of her classmates were not as lucky.  You have also helped her with [Novena] prayers for her grades in classes as well.

There have been several times when we thought my Husband would get laid-off and your [Novena] prayers came through.

My Daughter was involved with a gentleman with very low morals and values.  With God's help, she broke up with him as well.

I cannot express the amount of gratitude I have for you and your work.  I am certain you will have a great reward in Heaven.

If you wish to publish this letter, please feel free to do so.

Good luck and best wishes with your missions.  Hopefully this small amount will help.  If I were wealthier I would send more.

Perhaps as a suggestion, you might publish in your paper of the remarkable story of Danny Thomas.

I realize that many of your readers are a little young to remember this great comedian.  Danny Thomas is the gentleman who started St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.  You may already know this, but he started this hospital as a thank you to St. Jude for helping him in his career.

His prayers and Novenas to St. Jude were answered and he became an internationally known comedian back in the 50's and 60's.  I became aware of the power of St. Jude through the story of this great humanitarian.  So, it seems that each person's success in their devotion to St. Jude helps bring others to God through St. Jude....

C.C.

Father Mike:

May God bring you great blessings this Christmas season!  I am sending you this gift as a thanksgiving for all the prayers you have said in behalf of my family.  Times are difficult for many this season and hopefully this will help with your mission work.

Due to the intercession of St. Jude, the saint of impossible causes, my daughter did well academically this semester.  When she started this program at college, my husband and I were actually skeptical whether she would be able to handle the difficulty of this course of studies.  She is a bright girl but not a genius.  But she has worked hard and with the help of St. Jude is holding her own.

Small miracle number two is that she also received....  We did not think she would be able to get one because of the economy.  We needed her to get this...  for financial reasons.  My husband and I are older and were afraid that either of us might not live long enough to see her through the program of studies.

I am asking you to say novena prayers again for my job.....

Again, God bless you in your work.  Hopefully my little testimonial will help people realize the great power of God and His Saints, especially St. Jude.  He is truly the Power Saint as I like to consider him.

Thank you.

May God's blessings be upon you this year and always.

C.C.

P.S.  My daughter did....    Blessing # 3!
 
 

Dear Fr. Michael,

Hope you are well.  Once again God, thru St. Jude's Intercession and the Intercession of Our Blessed Mother, my mother had her.... surgery and all looks well.  The surgeon was guided God's hand and the Pathology reports look good!  We pray for continued healing by God thru St. Jude.

Please find my thank you Novena enclosed.

Thank you Fr. Michael for your work in carrying the mission of St Jude to all so they may be touched by his intercession... Please continue to share his works to all!

Sincerely,

J.E.

Father Michael:

I am sending you a thank you gift to St. Jude for favors granted.  I made a promise that I would provide your noble charity with additional money if he would answer our family's prayers.

Hopefully this small donation will be beneficial to you.  Again, as I have written before, if I was able to give more, I would.  You and your mission have a special relationship to our Lord, Jesus Christ and his many saints.

Your prayers to St. Jude have helped our family in the past and we have been blessed through Jesus and the intercession of St. Jude.

I wish everyone would realize that prayer truly works and all prayers are answered to fulfill our best needs.  I have found through the years that some prayers may not be answered the way I wished, but when I look back over a situation, it was for the best.  If granted, it would not have been a good thing at all.

...would you say a novena for....

Thank you for everything.  Best wishes on your mission work.

God bless you all

C.C.

[Editor's Note:  Yes, it is true "that prayer truly works and all prayers are answered to fulfill our best needs" because no prayer is ever "wasted", so to speak.  But the good God knows better than any of us what is and is not good for us.  Because God loves us so much, He desires to protect us from all dangers and all harm to our immortal souls.  So the good God, through the powerful intercession of Saint Jude, "answers" one's Novena prayers for a certain intention in a way that does not cause any danger or harm to one's immortal soul.  Said another way, God will never grant intention(s) of one or more Novenas that would cause a person to go to Hell!
Over the years, from time to time, even in a Sermon from time to time, I have mentioned how God sees this situation.  It is somewhat similar to a Mother who is cooking something to eat on a gas stove and has an inquisitive 2-year old under her feet exploring the "world" of the kitchen.  Suddenly, the child sees the pretty blue flame because Mom just put a pan on the gas stove to heat the contents.  The child likes the pretty blue flame which looks so beautiful.  The child - the explorer - wants to experience this pretty blue flame up close, so close that the child reaches out to touch this mysterious thing of such beauty only to experience Mom's firm hand clamped onto the child's wrist to prevent her child from being seriously burned and scarred for life!  The child cries because Mom is "mean" not letting the child get what the child wants - to touch the pretty blue flame.  But the child has no idea of how dangerous the pretty blue flame can be.

So the same is true with each of us.  A person sends us one or more Novena intentions and we make the nine-day Novena(s) as requested.  But they do not get their one or more Novena intentions.  The usual, too human response, varies from either anger towards God and/or Saint Jude, or to becoming emotional and feeling a loss of Hope.  Yet, behind the scenes, such a person is not aware that God IS actually in the process of answering their one or more Novena intentions, but in a different way from the one or more ways originally requested.

Too often, when their one or more Novena(s) are actually granted, because what they get, which is helpful for the salvation of their eternal soul, is different from what they asked for, sometimes they do not always recognize this fact.  So then what happens is that they go away mistakenly thinking that God "never" answered their Novena(s), which is actually not true!  Then they "give up" on God, on Saint Jude, etc., etc. But one should never "give up" on God or on Saint Jude.  Patience and Fortitude can become very necessary sometimes.  Always persevere and remain hopeful!  Or, as Saint Teresa of Avila writes:  "Patience obtains everything".]

Dear Fr. Michael,

I hope this note finds you well and seeing your work and mission transforming every day to celebrate God, thru The intercession of St. Jude.

Enclosed please find a Thank You Novena Request...

The second request is for my mother...

I continue to encourage all to call upon St Jude in times of need but also, when things are good, to remember to thank him... thank you Fr. Michael!

J.E.

From time to time, a summary is given of the many Testimonials so many people have sent me over the years concerning how Saint Jude Thaddeus has answered their Novena intentions.

The list is a long one indeed.  To be brief, in general the wonderful Testimonials include such things as:

passing exams;
being protected from harm while on active military duty (especially in Iraq);
getting a job;
getting a visa;
selling a home;
buying a house;
spiritual, physical, mental, emotional, psychological healing;
improvement of a relationship;
getting a compatible marriage mate;
help for one's Parent or Child;
being healed from a major disease (several have reported being healed from cancer and other serious diseases);
not needing minor surgery for a physical problem;
not needing major surgery for a physical problem (in at least one case, a person had the proof of her miracle in the form of the before and after x-rays which proved her instant and total truly miraculous cure);
moving to a better climate;
being accepted by a certain institution of higher learning;
getting a job promotion;
keeping one's job;
moving from one country to another;
many special intentions known only to the persons requesting the Novenas to Saint Jude;
many, many Novenas of Thanksgiving to Saint Jude for one or more intentions granted by Saint Jude;
many other things.

Some people ask me to remind everyone else that Saint Jude Thaddeus is in fact a powerful intercessor before the Throne of God in Heaven on behalf of those for whom and for whose intentions there 9 Day Novenas are made here at the Shrine of Saint Jude.  They tell me how they themselves have personally experienced his most powerful intercession in their own lives and frequently add that this is why they continue to keep coming back to Saint Jude whenever they are in need of help.

Because of the very positive experiences of some people in getting what they need as the result of their Novenas being made here at the Shrine of Saint Jude, some of them have, as it were, a "perpetual", or "continuous" non-stop series of Novenas - one that begins every Sunday of the year.  As a result, they tell me they almost always get what they need and even sometimes they get some things they would like to have, but do not really need.

On the other hand, sometimes a person does not get their Novena intention(s) granted.  Why?  Perhaps the following, from an actual Testimonial Letter, explains best why this is true and why it happens that not all Novena intentions are granted:

Father Michael:

I am sending you a thank you gift to St. Jude for favors granted.  I made a promise that I would provide your noble charity with additional money if he would answer our family's prayers....

I wish everyone would realize that prayer truly works and all prayers are answered to fulfill our best needs.  I have found through the years that some prayers may not be answered the way I wished, but when I look back over a situation, it was for the best.  If granted, it would not have been a good thing at all...

Thank you for everything.  Best wishes on your mission work.

God bless you all

Over the years, from time to time, even in a Sermon from time to time, I have mentioned how God sees this situation.  It is somewhat similar to a Mother who is cooking something to eat on a gas stove and has an inquisitive 2-year old under her feet exploring the "world" of the kitchen.  Suddenly, the child sees the pretty blue flame because Mom just put a pan on the gas stove to heat the contents.  The child likes the pretty blue flame which looks so beautiful.  The child - the explorer - wants to experience this pretty blue flame up close, so close that the child reaches out to touch this mysterious thing of such beauty only to experience Mom's firm hand clamped onto the child's wrist to prevent her child from being seriously burned and scarred for life!  The child cries because Mom is "mean" not letting the child get what the child wants - to touch the pretty blue flame.  But the child has no idea of how dangerous the pretty blue flame can be.

So the same is true with each of us.  A person sends us one or more Novena intentions and we make the nine-day Novena(s) as requested.  But they do not get their one or more Novena intentions.  The usual, too human response, varies from either anger towards God and/or Saint Jude, or to becoming emotional and feeling a loss of Hope.  Yet, behind the scenes, such a person is not aware that God IS actually in the process of answering their one or more Novena intentions, but in a different way from the one or more ways originally requested.

Too often, when their one or more Novena(s) are actually granted, because what they get, which is helpful for the salvation of their eternal soul, is different from what they asked for, sometimes they do not always recognize this fact.  So then what happens is that they go away mistakenly thinking that God "never" answered their Novena(s), which is actually not true!  Then they "give up" on God, on Saint Jude, etc., etc. But one should never "give up" on God or on Saint Jude.  Patience and Fortitude can become very necessary sometimes.  Always persevere and remain hopeful!  Or, as Saint Teresa of Avila writes:  "Patience obtains everything".

On the other hand, sometimes more than one or two or even three Novenas are necessary before one's Novena intentions are granted.  They key is simply to never give up, knowing that it is infallible that God will answer the intention(s) of their Novenas in what God calls "the fullness of time" - this time period varies greatly for reasons that vary with each person.  For example, one reason could be because of the nature of the intention itself, e.g. if one is praying for the cure from cancer or another disease, or something similar, e.g. a job.  Another reason could be the "lifestyle" of the person.  If a person goes around breaking the Ten Commandments of God, whether by stealing, or lying, or cheating, or talking dirty, or having illicit sex, etc., etc. God might wait for their "Spiritual conversion" before He grants their intentions for their Novenas.  This is one reason why it is so important to live a life of the practice of Virtue, beginning with Humility which is the basis of all of the Virtues, but also practicing Charity - the greatest of all of the Virtues.

I, personally, have also been helped by Saint Jude in so many different ways over the years, so many, many time, for which I most humbly thank Saint Jude for all of his most powerful help and intercession with God!

Thank You, Saint Jude!

Father Michael

Thank you Father Michael

you can post this testimonial online

My family own a second home in Hawaii. My sister's family was living in our second home and now they moved out to relocate in Germany.  The only option that we have is to rent the house. My mom and I have been praying to St Jude for almost 2 months and it seems that st jude is not answering my prayers.  I almost give up praying.

Two weeks ago, i was surfing the internet and found your website. I started reading the testimonial and gave me hope.

I printed the prayer request from your website and mailed my $10.00 check for the 9th day novena.

Then a few days later the property management called my sister to let us know that he found a tenant.

Thank you Father Michael and St Jude for answering my prayers.  I will be mailing my thank you novena tommorrow.

R.S.

Thank you father michael for my novena. st jude has answered all my prayers.

M.S.

Dear Father Mike:

I hope you had a very nice holiday and received many of God's blessings this year.  I am sending you another donation.  I would like to thank God and St. Jude for all the help in the past and ask for his blessings and some novenas for my family and myself....

I am asking St. Jude to help me in keeping my job....

Also, could you say another novena for my husband concerning his job....

My last novena is for my daughter.....

I always promise God and St. Jude that if I were ever financially able, I would certainly provide you and your monastery with more funding.

Your prayers to St. Jude, Father Mike, have been very successful.  You must have a special relationship with God.

Thanks again for all the prayers and words of encouragement.

Sincerely,

C.C.

[Editor's note:  I have noticed over many years that people who include a donation/tithing, along with their Stipend for one or more Novenas, etc., usually get their Novena or Mass intentions granted much sooner than others who do not do this.

I am well aware that not everyone is financially able to do this.

However, this is something for everyone to prayerfully consider, especially when they can do it.

I mention this fact because I am frequently asked for suggestions as to what a person should do to help to "speed up" the process of getting one's Novena intentions answered.

Although there are no absolute guarantees concerning this, I can say unequivocally that there has been a very definite and clear pattern that I have observed about this over the many years I have been making Novenas and offering Masses for the intentions for which I have been requested to pray.

I fully expect this pattern to continue because God is never outdone in generosity and a donation/tithing to one of God's ambassadors, which is what a Catholic Priest is, is in a special sense like giving to God - putting a Priest before oneself - this is an act of the Virtue of Faith, not to mention Trust, Hope, and Confidence in Saint Jude, but most especially in the good God.  This is also an act of the Virtues of Charity, Mercy, Humility, and Meekness.  All of these get God's favorable attention!  And, when coupled with the intercession of Saint Jude Thaddeus, the Patron Saint of the Impossible, it becomes a "win-win" situation!]

Dear Father Mike:

I am sending you $---- for a thanksgiving for all the wonderful work that St. Jude has done for my family.

St. Jude has always came through for our family.  I cannot give enough praise or thanks for the myriad of favors we have received.  My husband retained his job.  My daughter got on the tennis team despite all odds.  There are so many little and big miracles, I cannot remember them all.

Thank you for all your help.  You are a true saint in this world to help so many people.  I remember you writing some time back that a priest has more power in their prayers than we lay people.  I believe that is very true.  Hopefully, you can convey the message to others that belief in St. Jude really does work miracles!

Thank you so much.

C.C.

Father Michael,

I have enclosed .... This is for a Thank You Novena.  My Mother... has been praying with you for over a year for me and my 14 month old Son.

I have found a job that I enjoy and now can help contribute to my family.

I thank you and St. Jude for the Prayers, Novenas.

Thank you so much!

M.W.

 
Dear Fr Michael,

Just a note ... St Jude has answered our prayers...once again!!   We have prayed that my daughter, who has a one year old baby boy would find employment...  Today she landed a job that will provide for the care and support of her and the baby.

My daughter is also marrying the baby's daddy in October and he has proven to be a very wonderful, loving and responsible young man and father.

God and St Jude have walked this long road with her and I was just about to "give up" - as the rope was turning into threads and here God and St Jude show their hand and presence in our lives.

My thank you novena check will go out tomorrow and again, I thank you for your prayers and your work on behalf of God and St Jude.

As always, you may print my public thank you and I always share and encourage prayers to St Jude.

Respectfully,
J.

Editor's Note

Based upon some E-Mails I have received, and various people with whom I have spoken, it seems as if a larger and larger number of people feel like they, too, are just about to "give up" - as their "rope" is also "turning into threads"!  It has been a total of about one full year plus about one month, if my memory serves me correctly, that I have been making the 9-Day Novenas to Saint Jude for J.'s intention for her Daughter.

But a delay is not a denial and God frequently tests each of us in this way to make our Faith, Trust, and Confidence in Him, as well as in Saint Jude, much stronger than ever!

God requires us to give Him no rest, to never give up praying for what we need!  Why? Because, as Our Dear Lord explains to us:  "the Kingdom of Heaven suffereth violence, and the violent bear it away" (Matthew 11:12).

What does this mean?

The "violence" means to assault Heaven with Masses and prayers, especially novena prayers.

Novenas, for example, are acts of a persistent Fortitude, which, when coupled with Faith/Belief, gets each of us the good things we need as the Scripture testifies:  "And in all things whatsoever you shall ask in prayer, believing, you shall receive" (Matthew 21:22).

Such Fortitude/Faith/Belief is founded on Hope.  All of us need to remember that each of us is saved by Hope because to those who love God, all things work together unto good:  "For we are saved by Hope.  But hope that is seen, is not hope.   For what a man seeth, why doth he hope for?  But if we Hope for that which we see not, we wait for it with Patience...  And We know that to them that love God, all things work together unto good" (Romans 8:24-25, 28).

Finally, once people have received their Novena intention(s), just as you read in the above Testimonial where this Lady is sending a "thank you novena check" in gratitude to God and to Saint Jude so that her Novena of Thanksgiving to Saint Jude that I will be making for her will be found pleasing to God and to Saint Jude, so also in doing this the good God and Saint Jude will remember her gratitude so that in the future, when she has another intention for which I make Novenas for her, she can have total confidence that her Novena intention(s) will also be granted!

Consider, for example, when you give someone a gift, whether for Christmas or a birthday or whatever, don’t you like to be thanked by the person who receives the gift?  It is an act of proper manners and etiquette to thank someone as an expression of gratitude.  Not to do so is considered to be rude behavior and a lack of class and good manners.

So, then, promise to thank God and Saint Jude in advance, when you first submit your intention(s) for Masses and/or Novenas.  God is very generous to those who are generous, including those who give God gratitude, along with whichever intercessor they have chosen, whether our Blessed Mother, Saint Jude, or another Holy Saint.

Those who fail to thank God and their intercessor for getting their intention(s) granted, should realize there is probably a good chance that they will either never get what they want, or it will take a much longer time to get it!?

I still remember back in 1971 when a Lady told me that she always gets everything she wants from Saint Jude because after Saint Jude grants her Novena intentions, she always makes sure to thank him with the same number of 9-day Novenas of thanksgiving as were 9-day Novenas of petition.  She then publishes her Testimonials to Saint Jude.

By the way, it was because of her desire to have a public place to publish her Testimonials that, when the internet got up and running for most of us, I set up the Testimonials Page.

Before the days of the internet, I had set up a Testimonials board for her and all others in the Church by a statue of Saint Jude onto which they could publicly put their Testimonials to Saint Jude.

Over the years, she has told me, from time to time, how she has been doing this since about 1970 when she needed major surgery on her back.  About half-way through her first 9-day Novena to Saint Jude to be healed, she was in fact healed!  When the radiologist (the doctor who examines X-Rays) examined her "before" and "after" X-Rays and compared them, he was astounded at how she was totally healed and did not need the surgery!

She has also told me that no matter how many 9-day Novenas to Saint Jude are required before her intention(s) are granted - whether it is over the period of a few weeks or a few months (both of which tend to be the "usual" time period for simple things and from about six months to a full year for more difficult things, she never gives up - no matter how long it takes, and then she always has the same number of Novenas in gratitude.

But she has also told me that during both her 9-day Novenas of petition and her 9-day Novenas of thanksgiving, some of her other intentions, which she did not specifically mention, were frequently "automatically" granted!  Obviously, God is not outdone in generosity!

So, IF you feel that your "rope" is "turning into threads", you might want to prayerfully consider and perhaps re-read the above wonderful Testimonial from "J" about never giving up, no matter how many Novenas it sometimes takes!!!

Please consider that just as a body-builder gets big, strong muscles by exercising every day, so also God has each of us "exercise" our "Spiritual muscles" to help to make us Spiritually strong by exercising the Gift of Fortitude and the Virtues of Humility, Meekness, and, above all, Patience - by which God finds each of us to be worthy of His many Blessings and will - in His time - grant our Novena intentions.

These are the lessons one finds when one reads the lives of various Saints, and the personal experiences of our contemporaries even today as found in their wonderful Testimonials because how True it is that "the Kingdom of Heaven suffereth violence, and the violent bear it away" (Matthew 11:12).

Congratulations to this Victor and to all other Victors whose Heroic Patience, Humility, Meekness and Fortitude purified them, making them worthy of having their Novena intention(s) granted!

This is how the real Spiritual Life "works" for Catholics and I wish other Priests and Prelates would explain these basic Truths to their Cathoic Faithful so that they, too, could also always be victors!

So, remember to "Pray without ceasing" and "in all things give thanks" (1 Thessalonians 5:17-18).

My special "Thank You" to J. for sharing such a great Testimonial of Hope, of Faith, Trust, and Confidence in God and in Saint Jude, and the fantastic example to everyone of us of her Fortitude, Humility, Meekness, and Patience!  My your sterling example of never giving up be the lighthouse beacon light for all others who feel so overwhelmed and who, overcome by human nature, too often feel like giving up.  Although the extreme amount of time it took in your case is unusual, it seems to me that now the good God has not only granted, through the powerful intercession of Saint Jude, your intentions for your Daughter so she could properly care for her Son and your Grandson, but also it seems that God will grant you and your family many other Blessings and favors!

The very fact that you write:  "As always, you may print my public thank you and I always share and encourage prayers to St Jude" is itself a wonderful act of Charity and great kindness and concern for others who are themselves struggling as you have struggled during this time.  God is never outdone in generosity and your willingness and desire to share your Testimonial with all others and to so openly "encourage prayers to St Jude" by others has earned for you great merit, not only in this life, but in the life to come!  Thanks be to God and to Saint Jude!

For those of you reading her Testimonial, just remember how J. never gave up, despite the long time it took for her intentions to be answered!!!  So, because she did do it, because her intentions were granted, understand the same can also be true for you, too!  Yes, you also can do it!!!  Take courage from her excellent example to never give up, no matter what!  Always hang onto the "rope" of Hope, even if the rope of Hope is "turning into threads" in your own life.

"Let nothing trouble thee,
Let nothing affright thee,
All things pass away,
God never changes,
Patience obtains everything,
God alone suffices."

(Saint Teresa of Avila, Teresa Sanchez Cepeda Davila y Ahumada [b. at Avila, Old Castile, Spain on Sunday, March 28, 1515 A.D. - d. at Alba de Tormes on Monday, October 4, 1582 A.D.] - a notation written in her Breviary.)
 

God Bless You and may Saint Jude always grant your intentions and may each of you never give up!

Father Michael
 

Dear Fr. Michael:

A note of thanks to you for your kind emails regarding my novenas. St. Jude is a powerful force in my life and my family. I am forever grateful for his intercession and my/our blessings!

Please find a check for a novena for my daughter who is unmarried and mothering a beautiful 5-month-old baby boy - an angel created in God's image. My daughter needs to seek quality employment that will provide for them. She lives in a rural area so the job pool is somewhat limited. She is educated and skilled and I pray St Jude will guide her to a good job with pay and benefits.   Thank you for continuing the prayers upward with me! I ask God to continue to bless my daughter for choosing life for her beautiful baby boy.

J.E.

P.S.  As always, you are welcome to print my grateful acknowledgements to St Jude!!! Keep up the good work.  : )

Dear Fr. Michael,

I am requesting a novena in thanksgiving to St. Jude for his intercession in blessing me with a pregnancy.  I suffered a heartbreaking miscarriage before, but I am now blessed again with a litle life.

Please publish my thank you so that others may share my appreciation.

Sincerely,

J.P.M.

A beautiful, large statue of Saint Jude Thaddeus was sent to us as a donation in Thanksgiving.

A carefully hand-printed card, to stay with this "miraculous" statue of Saint Jude Thaddeus reads as follows:

"A donation made in Thanksgiving to Blessed Saint Jude Thaddeus for his powerful intercession.

Please display so that more people can honor this Blessed Saint."

A very special "Thank You" to the Lady who was so thoughtful and kind to send us this "miraculous" statue of Saint Jude Thaddeus!

Unfortunately, during the shipping process, most of the name and all of the address of this Lady was oblitered.  So although I have not been able to send a personal "Thank You" to her because I do not have her name or address, I do want to publicly thank her with her really great Testimonial!

In the many, many years this web site has been on the internet during which time I have gotten many fantastic testimonials from people all over the world that Saint Jude has helped, this is the very first time anyone has donated a Statue of Saint Jude - and it is a very beautiful, large statue as well!!

Needless to say, the above card has a permanent and prominent place at the foot of this "miraculous" statue of Saint Jude Thaddeus for everyone to read who prays before this special statue.

I call it a "miraculous" statue of Saint Jude Thaddeus because in addition to the sender's name and address being effaced, the same was also true regarding much of our address as well!  Therefore, it is by a "miracle" that we were actually able to eventually end up with it and also that it was totally undamged when it was finally delivered to us!!  Plus, since then, some people have gotten their own "miracles" as the result of some of the Novenas to Saint Jude I have made for them since this statue arrived!!!

Many, many thanks to the Lady who donated this wonderful "miraculous" statue of Saint Jude Thaddeus in Thanksgiving to Saint Jude for his powerful intercession and in the most unique testimonial to Saint Jude I have ever seen!

Finally, many thanks to Saint Jude Thaddeus for getting his "miraculous" statue here despite all of the problems with the shipping label and his great intercession in answering some of the Novena intentions of some of the Friends of the Shrine of Saint Jude!!!  Thank you Saint Jude!!!

Father Michael

Dear Father Michael,

Back in the late 1930's, Saint Jude miraculously and totally cured a niece of mine from polio!  Since that time I have had great devotion to Saint Jude!  Over the years, he has granted what were probably hundreds of my Novena intentions!  During that time I have also seen Saint Jude help many other people, too!

Thank you for publishing my long-overdue testimonial to the Patron Saint of the Impossible!

Thank you Saint Jude for granting ALL of my Novena intentions over the years!

Most especially, thank you for answering all of my intentions in those Novenas to Saint Jude which you have personally done for me!

Sincerely,

G.D.

Fr. Mike,

Again, thank you for everything.  I hope that this letter will convince people of the power of prayer to St. Jude.  St. Jude has always come through for me and I am sure he will help others as well.  As I have stated in the past, I wish I had more to give to your great missionary work as a tribute to St. Jude.

Thanks again,

C. C.

God and Saint Jude hear the prayers of God's Ordained Mediators as proven by the many Testimonials found here, on this Testimonials web page.

The bottom line is that this means that the actual Novena Prayers to Saint Jude that are used here at the Shrine of Saint Jude WORK as proven by the many Testimonials found on this Testimonials web page.

The primary reason WHY these Novena Prayers to Saint Jude WORK is because these are the Novena Prayers which, as an Ordained Catholic Priest, and therefore, as one of God's Ordained Mediators, I have used for many, many decades which have gotten the results about which you read from those Testimonials that are the more recent Testimonials which are on this web page!

I look forward to making the 9-Day Novenas to Saint Jude Thaddeus for your intentions!

But, just remember, the sooner you send in your Novena intentions on the Novena Form, along with your Stipend, the sooner I can begin to make the 9-Day Novenas to Saint Jude Thaddeus for your intentions!  Will YOU be the very next person to send me your very own Testimonial to be put here, on this Testimonials web page?!  DO IT NOW!

God Bless You!

Father Michael
Shrine of Saint Jude

Father Mike:

Just a note to let you know that your novenas for my husband's job were successful.  Not only has he kept his job but this job will be better for him!  At his age, 67, it would have been almost impossible for him to find another.  Thank you so much.

Considering the circumstances it is indeed a miracle that he still has a job.  Thank you St. Jude and thank you Father Michael for praying the novenas for us.  St. Jude is truly a miracle worker.

Also, I am sending you ... a thank you to St. Jude for the miracle.  Also, I would like 2 novenas for my daughter and for me as well....

Again, thank you and may God bless you in your work.  You may publish our small miracle.  At 67 years old, it is truly a miracle that my husband is still working.  We were afraid they were going to retire him out.

Dear Fr. Michael,

I am doing well and I have no complaints even though my doctors do - they are treating me for 21 different maladies - and my heart is pumping solely because of a pace maker.  If that stops, I stop.  I thank St. Jude and Our Blessed Mother for all that they have done for me - I just would not be alive - physically or spiritually without their help.

E.S.

Dear Fr. Michael,

Enclosed please find my “Thank You” Novenas to St. Jude and Our Lady of Mt Carmel. I continually ask St. Jude and Our Lady of Mt Carmel to protect my son, a Marine, serving his second tour in Iraq. Two weeks ago he was involved in an “incident”.  St. Jude, Our Lady of Mt Carmel, and God had their hands on J...........'s shoulder.  J........... and the other three Marines received minor injuries and they were spared their lives. I know God hears me thru my prayers and cries to St. Jude and Our Lady.

Another thank you as I have prayed for a clear medical report after two major tests. I am happy to report all tests were negative!!!

We await the birth of our first grandson. My daughter, who is unmarried, took a strong stance of choosing life for her first-born son. I pray God will look upon M......... and the baby by blessing the baby with good health. God will help my daughter provide for this child with love and support. St Jude has positioned the father of the child in their life and he appears to be a kind, hard working, good man who wants to be a good father. Please continue to pray for God to unveil his plan for my daughter.

Last, but not least, I ask St Jude to show my daughter's father and brother, (with whom she has been estranged because she chose to keep this baby rather than put it up for adoption) the light of love and bring them back into her life. She is hurting by their action of rejection. She and the baby need all the love and support they can receive.

Thank you and please continue prayers and thoughts upward.... God does continue to show me His light thru life's path when I trust and let Him lead!

And yes, Fr. Michael, you may print any or all of the above on you website! I hope others will feel encouraged to ask St. Jude for intercession and blessings from God.

Respectfully,
J.E.

Dear Father,

I am writing to thank you for your ministry-also I am requesting a novena in thanksgiving to St. Jude.

I have been ill for almost a year with a severe heart condition that was not responding to treatment.  The doctor ran a routine test the other day, to check the condition of my heart.

He called and said that my heart has made a "miraculous" [his words] recovery.  Instead of continuing to deteriorate, it is now functioning better than it has in the last 6 years!

There are no words to describe how awesome this is!

Sincerely,
E.S.

Dear Father Mike:

I wish to say that praying to St. Jude works miracles.  Also, I know you always email me to ask permission to publish the miracles that have happened to me and my family.  You may publish anything that happens as a miracle.  My daughter was not doing well in school until we began novenas and began to pray to St. Jude.  Her grades have gone up significantly.  Also, we thought my husband would lose his job and he did not.  We have had so many miracles due to St. Jude, it is incredible!

Everyone needs to believe in the power of prayer.  Hopefully you will publish this account so that others will be encouraged to trust in the power of prayer.

Dear Fr. Michael,

Thank you for your prayers to St. Jude for my special intentions.

I pray St. Jude intercede into the life of my daughter. Unmarried and pregnant, she has chosen life for her baby.  This angel will join our world in June.  I pray  St. Jude guides and will help her to provide, care and support this child.  I ask God to please look favorably upon her for her choice of life and bless her with a healthy baby, ten fingers, ten toes, all senses.

My Marine son heads back to Iraq in April for a second tour.    My Army son may be headed to the Middle East in May.   I pray Our Lady of Mt Carmel again place her mantle of protection around my boys and all our military. We ask for protection.

St. Jude helped my husband find work, a job truly heaven sent and we are blessed.

St. Jude never fails me.  I thank him for his intercession in my trials, tribulations and know that he is there for me.

Please share my appreciation for needs granted as we encourage others to pray.

Thank you.
JRE

Dear Father Michael,

I am very grateful to St. Jude Thaddeus and Our Blessed Mother for all of the blessings that I have received over the past months.  Not only have my prayers been heard and answered, but I have also received gifts that I did not ask for.  My life has truly been blessed and there are no words that can adequately say how thankful I am.

Thank you for all of your good work, and for this ministry.

E.J.S.

(Editor's Note:  Receiving gifts of various kinds that one did not ask for is not all that unusual.  Various people have told me the same thing over the years and I also know this from my own personal life.)

Dear Father Michael,

Saint Jude came through yet again because of your Novenas!

In great appreciation and thanks,

J.M.

Dear Father Michael,

Hello thank you for all my newsletters. Last month or so I wrote to you to ask St. Jude to help my family and I pray for my  brother in law who was having a very hard time finding employment here and he was already getting deepressed because no places where he applied was just not hiring.  Anyway  finally he was called for a job called rain maker, its a place where they do landscaping at different business and he loves his job and he is so happy. So I want to thank St. Jude again for praying for him St. Jude never lets me down he is a true amazing saint.

Thank you Fr. Michael for praying.

S. A.

Dear Father Michael,

Thanks to Our Blessed Mother (Our Lady of Good Remedy) and to Saint Jude for all of their help.  Your Novenas for me got me a wonderful job!  I am very pleased!  I was so depressed and you kept helping me to have faith and to remain hopeful and trustful in God, Our Blessed Mother, and Saint Jude!  I got my breakthrough and it is spectacular!  It is all like a dream - a dream come true, after much fear and anxiety - but you helped me to never give up!

God bless you for all your prayers for me and also for my family.

S.L., California

 
Dear Fr. Michael

By all means, please do post my testamonial.    My prayer requests to St. Jude are always heard and for this I am so very thankful.   My husband has a new job opportunity that God sent to us.....my Marine son is here in the US and St. Jude continues to hear my ongoing prayers for my daughter and family!!   And now our home has just been sold!

I wonder if he, Our Lady of Mt Carmel, St. Joseph and God look at St. Jude and say...."Oh no here she is again"

God does have a plan for us...trusting Him to guide us in His plan!

Thank you...J.

Dear Father Michael,

This is another special thanks to Our Blessed Mother (Our Lady of Good Remedy) and to Saint Jude for all of their help, especially for getting my 20 year-old Son a good job.  This is a double "miracle" because he had been unjustly fired from his job at this company.  But, after your Novenas for him, he was re-hired, something this company had never before done - this was truly a miracle.

What happened was he had two managers who were aware of the way he was unjustly let go.  Both were determined to intervene on his behalf and pressured the powers to be to get him back his job.  They succeeded!  Thanks again to Our Blessed Mother (Our Lady of Good Remedy) and to Saint Jude!

S.L., California

A most humble and grateful "Thank You!" to Our Blessed Mother (Our Lady of Good Remedy) and to Saint Jude for answering all my Novenas!  The move from California to Texas went very, very smooth with no real problems of any kind!  The good God brought me to Texas to work in His vineyard here.  It is always a very humbling experience to have God work in His whirlwind having things go so very smooth and flow so easily and quickly!

All for the Greater Honor and Glory of God and the Salvation of Souls!

Father Michael

Dear Father Michael,

Here is my Stipend for a Novena of Thanksgiving to Saint Jude for answering a previous Novena to Saint Jude which you made for me.

Saint Jude has really helped me and my family for which I am very grateful!

Thanks again to Saint Jude!

J.E.

Father Mike,

I want to tell you that my novenas have been successful.  My daughter not only made the varsity tennis team, but ended up as a 3rd seed for the team.  And believe me, that was a miracle.

God always gives us more than we want sometimes.  In addition to the Stipend for three new novenas to St. Jude, I am also enclosing a donation as a "thank you" to St. Jude for the help.

Sincerely,

C.C.

Dear Father Michael,

In thanksgiving "for all my prayers answered!!

J.E.

Dear Father Michael,

Thanks to St. Jude and Immaculate Heart of Mary Novenas and Masses for helping me in some difficult things!

Thank you Father Michael for making it possible for me and others to have you make these Novenas and offer Masses for us.  May God grant that you will be able to continue to still do these things for many more years!

Dear Father Michael,

As you know, one of the promises in praying to St Jude, is to share his special gift of intercession with others, so that they will honor him as well.   He has never failed me in my special requests.

Dear Father Michael,

A few months ago I was living a very toxic situation that involved some abuse, and an unhealthy living situation. I also have a very serious heart/lung condition and the doctors were telling me that the medical plan was "to keep me comfortable". Mixed with all of that, I have a very limited income.

I started praying to Saint Jude, and it was not long before my health started to improve.  Then I was able to move to an apartment that I could afford, in a neighborhood that is fantastic.  I had friends come out of the woodwork, and furnish my apartment with everything with everything from soup to nuts--and very beautiful things, at that.

My son came back into my life, after years of being estranged. I am also back going to church after a thirty year absence.

I can only attribute all of this to the Hand of God--and the help that I have received from St Jude!

Sincerely

E. S.

Dear Father Michael,

St. Jude's Novena you did helped me in so many ways!

Thank You!

T.J.

 

Dear Father Michael,

Thank you again for scheduling the two Novenas to Saint Jude.

Saint Jude has interceded on behalf of my mother. Shortly after the novenas, my mother began to respond to her chemotherapy. Her cancer surgery was successful and she is in remission. Her situation seemed so desperate and hopeless at first. My family and I will always be grateful to Saint Jude for his intercession.

We will always have faith in Saint Jude.

Sincerely yours,
K.G., Georgia

Dear Father Michael,

After 3 years of struggling with my weight, you made a Novena to St. Jude for me concerning my weight problem.

Thanks to the Novena to St. Jude, I have lost a substantial amount of weight in the last few weeks since my Novena ended!

St. Jude guided me to the solutions that finally helped me personally to get the weight off in a healthy way.

I had tried all kinds of weight loss methods over the last 3 years, and nothing worked.  But, finally I told St. Jude that IF he would help me to be successful with my weight loss (in a healthy manner) that I would ask you to put my Testimonial on your website Testimonials and in your Newsletter.

In addition, St. Jude has helped me, as the result of other Novenas you have made for me, with other Novena requests!

I am giving this testimony to everyone as a way to give thanks and recognition to St. Jude, the Patron Saint of Impossible cases!

With great gratitude to St. Jude!!!

Hi Father Michael,

A few months ago I wrote to you that I had a dream of my Mother, who has passed, of her suffering in pain.

I asked that a couple of Novenas be said by you and just recently my Wife had a dream of my Mother standing in our kitchen smiling.  So maybe the Novenas did the trick, so to speak.

Thanks again for all you do.

C.N.

Dear Father Michael,

Thanks for making the Novenas to Saint Jude for me.  As always, Saint Jude came through in a difficult situation I was having!

Respectfully, with deepest gratitude,

M.

Dear Father Michael,

I wanted to update you on my aunt's progress.  Once the 2 novenas for her started, she made amazing progress!!!  When the novenas started, she was not responding at all.  We couldn't even get her to open her eyes.

Then about 2 days later, she woke up, but was extremely disoriented.  But by about 1 week later, she was awake and alert, and aware of what was going on.  She made amazing progress in those next few weeks.  She got off of the feeding tube, and the blood clots in her lungs dissolved.

After about a 4-5 week stay, she was able to go home.  She still cannot walk, and probably won't for a few months yet, but I believe St. Jude had much to do with the progess she is making.

I think he may also have had a hand in the community helping them out.  Their neighbors donated supplies and labor to build a wheel chair lift so that she could stay at home instead of a nursing home during her recovery, and we are having a large auction for them the end of July to help alleviate some medical bills.

My aunt is very upbeat, and says she owes everything to prayer and family.

I will be sending in a novena thank you soon, and also a separate novena thank you (I prayed to St. Jude to help us sell our home....and we sold it in a week!!!)  I continue to believe in the power of prayer and St. Jude!!!

Sincerely,

B. N.

Dear Father,

Thank you for your 9 day Novena and additional 9 days as well. We were very blessed when my husband received not one but 2 job offers within 1 week!

Thank you again and God bless you and your works!

Sincerely,
P. G.

Dear Father Michael,

A special Thanks to Saint Jude.  He quickly got me results, plus two wishes which I had not even included with my Novena intentions!  Wow!  St. Jude is the greatest!

M.

Dear Father:

I want to thank you for your novenas to St. Jude.  One has been most successful.  My daugher got her grade card today and her grades are the highest she has received this year.  Thank you and St. Jude so much.

Please publish our success.

Dear Father Michael,

My Mother was diagnosed with 4th stage lymphoma in May of 2004.  She had been treated for the same thing 11 years ago, so she couldn't use the same treatments a second time. It didn't look good and everything they did were new treatments and experimental.

I sent in for the 9 day novenas to start when she would begin each new treatment  She wasn't sick at all from the chemo and didn't have any of the critical reactions she could have had from the experimental drugs. Now a complete body scan showed she is in complete remission.

Thank you St Jude!!!  Thank You, Thank you!!!  St Jude helped me 15 years ago when I was very ill and many times in between.

Thank you God, St Jude and you Fr Michael for saying the novenas for my Mom.

T.C.
You have my permission to print this.

Dear Father Michael,

It's really great!  Your Novenas for me to the Poor Souls in Purgatory and to Saint Jude have turned my life around!  I have been hired at a good job and some other major concerns in my life have also been taken care of.

I will be sending you a stipend for a Mass of Thanksgiving for the Poor Souls and Saint Jude when I get my first pay check.  Thank you so very much!

The help I got was really super fantastic and really super fast!

S.L.

Dear Father Michael,

Almost unbeleivable but real, even before you started the novena for me, St. Jude helped me in getting the visa documents that I needed immediately. I was also doing a novena of my own for this same intention and way before finishing it he helped me....THANK YOU SAINT JUDE!!!

Thank you for being such a support, such a good friend.

Love,
DV

Dear Father Michael,

Your novenas to Saint Jude have been very successful for me!

The last novena you made for me was in regard to the financial difficulty that my husband and I were having.   Although we did not receive any money, we were able to figure out a way not to file bankruptcy.

Thank you for all of your help.

C.C.

Dear Father Michael,

You know the old saying - it helps to have friends?  Well it's very much true; even more so when your talking about a guy like Saint Jude.  I sent you several Stipends for Novenas to Saint Jude for my Mom who has been real sick these last few months.  It's a wonder she even made it to Mass on Christmas Eve.

Well, a few days ago, she got to go see a different doctor,  and well, she got a surgery she needed badly.  Now she is very much improved and recovering nicely.

It seems like I'm always saying it but, "Thank you so very much Saint Jude!"   I don't know where we would be without you!  Thank you!!!  Thank you so very very much!!!  Having a friend like you and seeing stuff like this take place just confirms my faith all the more!!!!

Once again, THANK YOU so very much!!!!

T.A.

To Fr Michael:

Please publish my thanksgiving to St Jude regarding a successful application to a place I very much wanted to go to, I have now been invited for an interview.

Please also publish my thanksgiving for the acceptance of my dissertation as I was unsure if it would be accepted or not as it was 3 days late, though the emailed version was sent on time.

Dearest St. Jude,

Thank you St. Jude for granting my petitions:-

1. For giving me a transfer to another department.
2. For my sister who is cured from her stomach pain.

Thank you very much St. Jude for answering my petitions.

R.D.

Dear Father Michael,

Last year I wrote to you about a legal battle on behalf of my first born child, S., who died at 9 weeks of age.

I requested two novenas on her behalf and both have been granted!

We presented a case on her behalf and we won. I also asked for justice for the wrongs committed against her. The ruling miraculously reflected just that! Everyone said this case was a long shot and no one could have imagined we would have prevailed!

Thank you St. Jude!

Dear Father Michael,

A few months ago I sent in 2 novena requests.  One was to help me obtain a new position in another city to help us get back to where our family is.  I am so happy to say that I got the position I wanted, and we are moving back in a few weeks.

I have prayed to St. Jude before, and truly believe that he has heard my prayers and helped in my needs.  Once again, and with your help, St. Jude has helped us.  Thank you, St Jude, for caring about us, for hearing our prayers and for helping us.

The 2nd novena was to help my husband with his business.  It is taking longer than the first request, but with good reason.  I know that St. Jude is there helping us.

Thank you again, Father Michael, for your help - and for this wonderful website to give us access to you.

S.J.

Dear Father Michael,

I have been blessed to find your site in the past.  And it was here that I truly learned how to pray the St. Jude Novena.  I must tell you of the EXCITING and PROFOUND Blessings I have received during my Novena to St. Jude.

I am disabled and my husband is very sick also.......................... we lost our home, cars, and sold off all of our personal possessions due to these financial difficulties................. The Novenas to Saint Jude were answered asking God to please grant me a job near where I am living now so ........................ that I can help pay back what we owe to family members and old bills from before we lost our house.

Today I was blessed with a job less than 5 miles from my Mother's house!  I have not worked in 6 years and I am so very grateful to St. Jude for helping me!

Other miracles that have happened................................... the amazing way the money just appeared to pay for my medication, to help my son pay for his rent, to buy groceries for my family, to allow me to have a huge bill paid for me which allows me to stay in touch with my children and husband.

I have repeatedly seen the miracle of the money!!  I have been blessed with go so much more than possible!

So from Me, I. T. S., to St. Jude, THANK YOU THANK! YOU THANK YOU!  You ARE truly my special and powerful Patron Saint!

I encourage anyone to pray to St. Jude for Help.  It WILL HAPPEN.  Most probably not the way you expect , BUT IT WILL HAPPEN!

Thank you, Father Michael, and please print this so that others may  know the incredible micracles I am testifying to!  GOD BLESS YOU FATHER MICHAEL for teaching us all how to pray this miraculous Novena to the Amazing St. Jude.

With great love, I am, I. S.

Dear Father Michael,

My Novena to St. Jude has long exceeded the normal Novena time (He keeps on working long after the request is granted!).

I pray to St. Jude every a.m. and p.m.  He is the center of my prayers throughout the day.

I do not always ask him to help with the most impossible items in my life.  I always thank him for being there for me. He has never failed me and keeps on working long after the request (has been granted)!    St. Jude will never fail if the devotion is sincere and the need necessary.

C.G.

Dear Father Michael,

Thank you very much for the Novenas. I can tell you that St. Jude already took care of my petition.
Isn't he wonderful! I am so grateful.

Thank you again.

[N.B.  This was about half-way through the first Novena here at the Shrine of Saint Jude!]

Dear Father Michael,

Saint Jude came through yet again because of your Novenas!

In great appreciation and thanks,

J.M.

Dear Father Michael,

I have already sent you some Novenas to Saint Jude.  One of it was that I have a holy and happy marriage. I am now enjoying my marriage more than ever.  There are still some intentions yet to be granted but I have faith they will all come.

Thanks to Saint Jude
GI

A very great need here at the Shrine of Saint Jude was just met, as the result of several Novenas to Saint Jude which I made, with a wonderful donation of a gift from a very kind, thoughtful, generous and charitable person!

Thanks be to Saint Jude and also many, many thanks to our fantastic benefactor whom I will keep in my Masses and prayers here at the Shrine of Saint Jude!

Father Michael

Dear Father Michael,

My husband and I are getting on in years, and have had much financial trouble in the past. Both of us have had major illnesses that have also complicated our lives.

We suddenly realized that at the rate the economy is going, we would soon be unable to afford to rent a home.  Since we had a failed business in the past, our credit rating was not good, so buying a home seemed out of the question.

I told my husband I was going to petition St. Jude to interceed for us, to allow us a second chance.

The very next month, the government called to say they had forgiven a tax debt we had been trying to pay off for the past decade.  They cleared a lien from our credit history.

My husband saw a tiny little house at the edge of town.  We went to see it, and put in a bid.  To our amazement, the bank gave the go-ahead, and we found ourselves homeowners.

We're now living in a house that is incredibly affordable.  It is very tiny, just right for us. My husband's health is improving, and while mine is not, my outlook on life, has taken a definite turn for the better.  I may be in poor health, but I have regained hope and my faith has been renewed, and that is more important.  I believe it is directly due to St. Jude's intercession and petition to Our Lord, to help my husband and I.

Just thought you'd like to know  :)
J. S.

Dear Father Michael,

Back in the late 1930's, Saint Jude miraculously and totally cured a niece of mine from polio!  Since that time I have had great devotion to Saint Jude!  Over the years, he has granted what were probably hundreds of my Novena intentions!  During that time I have also seen Saint Jude help many other people, too!

Thank you for publishing my long-overdue testimonial to the Patron Saint of the Impossible!

Thank you Saint Jude for granting ALL of my Novena intentions over the years!

Most especially, thank you for answering all of my intentions in those Novenas to Saint Jude which you have personally done for me!

Sincerely,

G.D.

Dear Father Michael,

I would like to thank you so much for praying the 9-day novena to St Jude for the intentions of a successful surgery of my niece in her ovary.  She had her surgery last Tuesday, April 20th,  and later today she will be discharged from the hospital to have a full recovery at home.

D.D.

To Fr Michael

I would like to publicly thank St Jude for his help especially getting onto this course, this accomodation, I asked you to pray to st Jude that as was agreed, I maybe allowed to stay in this accomodation for the length of my course. This has been confirmed.

Dear Father Michael,

Some members of my family had some pressing needs.  Because of reading the testimonials on your testimonials page, I got courage to ask Saint Jude for help.

I sent several Novenas with stipends to you and Saint Jude quickly brought me two things which I needed and just before you began the first of the Novenas!

So here are several more Novenas to Saint Jude in thanksgiving for his quick help plus in answering some of my other Novena intentions also quickly!  You have my permission to publish this on your testimonials page and in your newletter.

S.J.

Hello Fr. Michael,

......This is so wonderful, I just can’t keep it to myself.  If...anybody should hear news like this it should be YOU!!!

....I’m.........sitting down right now......... because it already floored me........... I know I shouldn’t be surprised knowing all too well what Saint Jude can do...You made some Novenas........  for my friend K. remember? ........  Now we’re almost talking about a new person!

Now for the best part! The guy he used to work for is talking about....hiring him, so he might be getting his old job back!   .......... As for me, I know I might be going back to work again too in about a week or two......... Once again all I know how to say is “Thank you, Saint Jude!  Thank you very much.”!!!!

I’m sorry, I’m starting to get choked up and teary eyed just from writing this.  It just so wonderful! You made some Novenas to Saint Jude and once again he comes through...........  It just touches me like nothing else!  The love of God, a great friend like Saint Jude!  And I know it’s all going to be okay. All I can do is sit and watch with wonder and cry.  Thank you,  Saint Jude, Thank you so very much! Thank you for saving my friend and thank you for being my dear friend too ......

By the way, I did tell my friend what I did and he wants me to say Thank You for him. I told him I would.  I just thought you should know.  Once again, thank you,  Saint Jude!  Thank you so very much!

T.A.

Dear Father Michael,

My son needed more hours at work.  Thank you for offering a Mass and making a Novena to Saint Jude for my intentions.

Not only was he just rescheduled from seven hours to forty hours per week, but he also was offered as many hours as he wants at his old job!

But it gets even better!

Yesterday, Saturday, he received a phone call from the manager of a large company who wants him to begin work for him as soon as possible!  The hours are much better, the pay is way better, plus all of the fringe benefits, this is the kind of work he really enjoys doing-this is his "dream job"!  So next Monday, when he restarts is his old, he will be giving his two weeks' notice and has already done so at the place where he was just rescheduled to work 40 hours!

Thank you so very much and many thanks to God, Our Lady and to Saint Jude-he really came through in a most difficult financial situation for us!

D.S.

Dear Father Michael,

On the 4th day of your 2nd Novena for me to St. Jude my intentions were granted!

Thank you God, Blessed Mother and St. Jude!

My next Novena to St. Jude will be in Thanksgiving!

M.M.

Dear Father Michael,

I just wanted to thank you for praying to Saint Jude for me.

I had sent 3 novenas. The first one was for my boyfriend and I to become more committed to each other, the second one was that my mom would find a new job that she liked and where she was not so stressed out all the time, the third one was for my brother to find a nice wife so he can spend the rest of his life with. So far the two first ones have been answered.

Thank you so much.

R. E.

Dear Father Michael,

Saint Jude came through yet again because of your Novenas!

In great appreciation and thanks,

J.M.

Dear Father Michael,

I just want to say "Thank you" for your Novenas for all of my intentions which I had mailed to you sometime ago to ask you to pray for some people.

I just wanted to let you know how things are working out.  My Mom's friend, J.S., who went into the hospital - someone was saying they couldn't do it, but after your Novenas, they found a way to do it!

Anyway, my Mom asked me to write to you and say "Thank you so very much to Saint Jude!"

I know if it wasn't for him, none of this would have happend!  So "Thank you!  Thank you very much!"

And also my friend K. just got a new job again!  Saint Jude had a hand in that too!  So again, "Thank you very much!"

I don't know what else to say except "Thank you very much!"

As for the rest of my intentions, my Dear Sister is still having some problems, so if you could please say some more prayers to Saint Jude for her.

I keep telling these people that with just a little faith and a great friend like St. Jude anything is possible!

So please say some more prayers for my Sister.  Once again, thank you so very much for making those Novenas for my Mom's freind J. and for my freind K., too!

Thank you,

T.

Dear Father Michael:

Dear Father Michael,

I want to thank St. Jude for prayer answered and bringing me back the love of my life and finding faith in myself and my relationship.

Thank You,

Dear Father Michael,

I write to you in thanksgiving for a favor granted thru my novena to St Jude.  He partiaclly answered my prayer in returning home a very special person in my life.  St Jude still has more difficult request to answer in granting a cure of this person suffering from Homosexual life style & Bipolar disorder.

I now want to add to my petitions a prayer for my 85 year old mother suffering enormously with an idopathic lung disease that is sapping her strength & energy.  She is struggling horribly just to breath.  She is otherwise in very good health.  She is a faith filled 3rd order Fransciscan, Very dedicated to the 15 mysteries of the Rosary & had been a daily communicant.  Please include both of my above petitions in your prayers.

I had promised St Jude publication of his intersession if he heard & answered my prayers & petitions.  Would you please make note of this on the internet.  Would this be considered publication?

Thank you & may God Bless you abundantly thru the help of St Jude & the Blessed Virgin Mary & all his Angel, Saints & Souls in Purgatory.

M.T.

[Editor's Note:  Yes, this would be considered publication.  Thank You for your testimonial!]

Dear Father Michael,

Recently we have been trying to struggle through a severe financial crisis.  Things were so bad that we weren't sure if we would have money for Christmas presents or to pay the bills.  And the creditors were calling so much we were afraid to answer our phone.  The prayers you offered for our assistance to St. Jude have been answered.  We were able to buy presents for those we love and are in the process of paying off our creditors.

Thank you, St. Jude, for answering the prayers said for us and for all who come to you in need.  And thank you Father Michael for your kindnesses.  We are so grateful.

We have been experiencing financial difficulties and had gotten to the point where we literally had no money left and bills to pay. I prayed to St. Jude and his intercession provided us with the money that we needed.

Thank you, St. Jude. Once again you have come to my aid!

S.W.

Dear Fr Michael

By the grace of Amighty and by the Intercession of St Jude, I have been called for a job. It is for an Electronics company, mainly their Store Inventory Control System. It's sounds like a good job. They have told me come and join them on Monday 10th November 2003. Please Fr. Micheal pray for a good future for me in that company and pray that I will do well for the company.

It was 3 months since I came to Canada and I was jobless all this while.  Now, by the Grace of Almighty Lord and St. Jude, I got a job!

Thank You St Jude for all the prayers you have done for me.

Please Fr Michael , kindly host this message on your next Magazine.

Yours Faithfully,

(Editor's Note:  What makes this even more remarkable is the fact that, through the intercession of Saint Jude, as the result of some Novenas I made for him here at the Shrine of Saint Jude, he and his family were able to leave a war zone and make it to safety in Canada.  Now, once again, as the result of some additional Novenas I made for him here at the Shrine of Saint Jude, he now has a good job!)

Dear Father Michael,

Thank you for the Novenas to Saint Jude for my many needs.

Saint Jude has come through for me!  Thank you, Saint Jude!

Please publish this so that others will know Saint Jude is still working "miracles"!

So many thanks again for making the Novenas to Saint Jude for me!

With much gratitude,

Dear Father Michael,

More "thank you's" for praying some more Novenas to St. Jude for my intention!  This time for passing my final exam in another subject which even the teacher admitted was a very hard and difficult subject which even the best students barely pass!!  Again, I got a very good grade!  Here are my Novenas of Thanksgiving!

Thank you, thank you, St. Jude!!
J. D.

Dear Father Michael,

Many thanks for praying the Novena to St. Jude for me for help in passing my final exam which was expected to be extremely difficult.  But it was worse than extremely difficult.... it had lots and lots of trick questions, even more very tricky math calculations, etc., etc. ... but my grade was by far the highest in the class.... 96 out of a possible 100!

Thank you St. Jude!

Hello!

You performed a Novena for me, that I might find a job that was right for me spiritually and in other ways.

This is the job I'm writing you from! It's perfect, in a family oriented company and region, with enough salary to make sure that I can look after myself and a future family, and close enough to my family of origin so that we can see each other so much more often. I started last week.

God Bless you for the work that you do.

If you wish to publish this, please exclude my name but glorify that of St. Jude.

More From C.A. in Mass.

I have made a Novena of Thanksgiving to St. Jude - I sent it off yesterday to you, with another novena request as well.

God Bless,

C. A. - Mass.

Dear Father Michael,

I had to write to tell you something new.  Recently, I had written in regarding how the novena to St. Jude resulted in a correct medical diagnosis after YEARS of confusion. Well, I am just completing the ninth day of a novena for my hair.  Yes, hair.  I was involved in a car accident last December.  A week later, I was sitting with my mother preparing Christmas Eve dinner when she looked at me and said, "You're shedding!"  The black shirt I was wearing was covered with hair. I was losing hundreds of hairs a day, especially when I washed my hair.  It may sound vain, but when a 29-year old female begins losing hair, or any age female for that matter, she will do almost anything to make it stop, especially in our image-conscious society.  The doctors just kept telling me, "It will stop."  I tried visiting a few hair loss websites, but usually ended up more stressed and upset than before.  Thinking about my hair consumed every minute of every day.

Today, I was finally able to get back online and look at some relevant sites that gave me truly helpful information on a condition, temporary and reversible, called telogen effluvium  - often caused by extreme stress and physical trauma.  It's not a quick fix, but I feel hopeful now that the situation will improve.  Things look much better than I had previously feared.  Once again, St. Jude has powerfully intervened on my behalf, and I wanted to let everyone know as soon as I could.  He is my truly powerful patron.

Sincerely,
C. P.

Dear Fr. Michael,

A special thank you to St. Jude for hearing my prayers and answering my prayers for my daughter!  A career path job has been secured and she starts Wednesday!    It has been a long journey to get her here but thanks to St. Jude prayers an answer is now visible.   I continue to pray that she will have guidance and be successful in the new opportunity.    Near wits end a few weeks ago I wondered if God heard me..... I continue to learn that he hears me....the plan is on his terms and I need to trust, trust, trust Him that he will show us the way.

Thank you again!
JRW

[Editor's Note:  How often have so many of us "wondered if God heard me"???

A most special "Thank You"! to JRW for sharing this wonderful success story!  In the E-Mail for permission to use this testimonial, JRW expressed a great desire and hope that this testimonial would help others who "when they are at the end of the rope, realize that that there is a last knot there....it is St. Jude working for God to help us continue to trust him and his plan!"  How elegantly expressed!

Many times when people send us their Novena Intention(s) they feel hopeless because nothing they have tried has worked (or at least not very well) and the situation usually becomes worse with the passage of time.  It is always wonderful to get such fantastic feedback from a Novena to Saint Jude made here at the Shrine of Saint Jude for that person's intention(s) and I wish JRW and family well in the future by the Grace of God and the powerful intercession of Saint Jude!]

Dear Father Michael,

Thank you for making the Novena to Saint Jude for my daughter.  She has improved out of sight and from desperation last Saturday, she was released from hospital this Thursday.

We cannot believe it! She is so much better!  We had an old retired Indian Doctor working at the hospital on the weekend and when our daughter started to go bad, he got involved. He was a Godsend!

He told me when I met him on Sunday morning (the very same day that you began making the Novena to Saint Jude for my daughter) that he would have her out within the week. He took over and she is!

Thank you God, Thank you Saint Jude, and Thank you everyone who has been praying for her!

D.G.

Dear Father Michael:

Many thanks to Saint Jude, truly a Saint of the Impossible, for all of his wonderful help and fantastic success of the last two Novenas you made to him for my intentions which have been answered - and even several "extras" thrown in for good measure, above and beyond what I had even requested!!!!

I wish everyone could take advantage of his POWERFUL and, in my case, FAST, results!!!!

THANKS A MILLION, SAINT JUDE!!!
J.M.

[Editor's Note:  J.M. has contacted us again - this time about the three Novenas of Thanksgiving he sent us right after the above Testimonial.  J.M. writes in part that "Saint Jude has helped me in an unexpected situation, but this time it was before I could even request this intention in another Novena!  I feel this happened, at least in part, as a "reward" for my devotion to Saint Jude and also for my habit of sending you my Novenas of Thanksgiving to him for all of his fantastic help!  But, I also feel that if I had NOT sent you those three Novenas of Thanksgiving to him, he would NOT have helped me with this particular situation so fast!  Thanks a million for making my three Novenas of Thanksgiving to Saint Jude and THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, AGAIN, SAINT JUDE!"]

Dear Father Michael,

Recently I returned from an overseas mission as a U.N. Peacekeeper. I had to quit my job of 24 years to do this. I was given the understanding that upon my return they would have a place for me to return to.

Well upon my return the Agency had downsized and the Administration had failed to keep their word to me. As a result I was out of work and needed a job. I started to find it difficult to return to my former line of work due to my age. Departments like to hire younger people.

I sent you a Nine Day Novena for St. Jude. On the third day of the Novena, I received two offers of employment from Agencies with two more in the offing. I have taken employment with another State, and the future is very promising with them.

I continue to ask St. Jude for assistance as I still need help with this new adventure. I believe without St. Jude's help and his special favor which he holds with our Lord God this would not have been possible.

Thank you

Dear Father Michael,

Hello thank you for all my newsletters. Last month or so I wrote to you to ask St. Jude to help my family and I pray for my  brother in law who was having a very hard time finding employment here and he was already getting deepressed because no places where he applied was just not hiring.  Anyway  finally he was called for a job called rain maker, its a place where they do landscaping at different business and he loves his job and he is so happy. So I want to thank St. Jude again for praying for him St. Jude never lets me down he is a true amazing saint.

Thank you Fr. Michael for praying.

S. A.

(Comment:  I was very happy to learn that another Novena to Saint Jude has once again helped those in need!)

Hello Father.

How are you today?

I don't know where to start.  I am just stunned and amazed!  I sent you a check as a stipend a couple weeks ago to be able to take part in the St. Jude Novena, remember?  Mine was for a special thank you for several special intentions regarding my Mom and my Sister.

I also included myself for special intentions.  Well, I know that sometimes when you say this Novena Prayer awesome things happen!  Well, here it goes!  I went to broadcasting school to be a radio dejay.  But, it seamed that no matter what I did I could not get a job in radio.  To say that I was upset and depressed was an understatement.  Anyway, I put my application in at one particular station about a year ago.  Not having heard from them, I put it out of my mind and thought no more about it until 2 days ago when I got a call from them!  They still had my name on file and they called me because they wanted me to come in for a interview.  I know St. Jude had a hand in it!

I just want to say, now more then ever, thank you!  If it had not been for that Novena you did for me, I'm sure it would not have happened.  I am just stunned!  It just seams so amazing!  Who would ever think it could happen?!  I just don't know what to say except "Thank you, St. Jude"!  I know it doesn't seem like enough, but it's all I know how to do.  Thank you so very much.  You are a good friend!

(Commentary:)

Dear T.A.

You said it very eloquently and I feel that St. Jude is very pleased with your Testimonial to him!  I know, from your previous E-Mails, that things have not been so easy for you, but you did not give up on God, nor on St. Jude!  God was testing you and you passed your test and now God has blessed you in many ways, especially through the intercession of St. Jude!  I join with you in publicly thanking St. Jude for his wonderful help for you and your family members!

Father Michael.

Dear Father Michael,

What a fantastic site!!!!!!!  With many prayers and novenas to St. Jude I was cured of cancer.  It has been ten years now and I've never forgot my "SPECIAL FRIEND", Saint Jude!

I want to thank you very much for sending this site to me. I will pass it on to my friends.

I do wish you would publish my testimonial on your testimonials to Saint Jude page for the whole world to read!  May everyone who reads my testimonial gather new hope for their seemingly hopeless problems and remember that, by God's Holy Will, Saint Jude can help them, too!

Sincerely,
K. M.

Dear Father Michael,

I wanted to send you a testimonial about the power of prayer, especially the power of praying to St. Jude.  About 3 years ago, my husband and I wanted to have a baby.  We knew we would have difficulties conceiving, because I have polycystic ovarian syndrome (which means I do not ovulate, and therefore can not get pregnant).  In the process of trying to conceive, we also found out that my husband had some fertility issues as well.  Not wanting to take any "drastic steps" to get pregnant, we tried our only option, which was an oral fertility medication that induces ovulation in some women with the same illness I have.  We weren't overly optimistic, however, because several of my aunts have the same syndrome, and the medication did not work for them.  But, we gave it a try.  And then, remembering what my grandmother always taught me about the power of praying to saints, my husband and I prayed daily novenas to St. Jude.  The doctor didn't think we would be able to get pregnant.!

.....but after 2 short months of taking the medication to help me ovulate, I became pregnant! I believe in my heart that it was truly a favor granted by St. Jude!  Nine months later, we were blessed with a little boy, more healthy, happy, and intelligent than we ever dreamed possible!  He is truly a gift from heaven!  Now as my son is 2 1/2, my husband and I have been trying for 6 months to conceive another child, still battling our infertility problems. Unfortunately, it is not happening as quickly this time.  We are still praying to St. Jude, hoping that he can grant us one more miracle, so that our son may know the love of Christ through the love of a sibling.  Please keep us in your prayers.  We are keeping the faith that St. Jude will bless us and our son soon!  We will be sending in a request for a Novena to you soon!

In prayer,

B. N.

(Editor's Note: Yes, they have sent in their Novena intention.  I  feel confident that Saint Jude will also grant this new intention for them as well!)

Dear Father Michael:

I am the lady with the husband with the biopsies that were repeated and turned out negative. I wanted to let you know that the first 3 month follow up for the blood test and the physical exam were very encouraging, there in no evidence active cancer. Just to think that he was going to have surgery!

Thank You St. Jude and your prayers Father.

Dear Father Michael,

Thanks for doing my novenas for St. Jude.  They worked for me real great!

Dear Father Michael:

I want to thank St. Jude for answering my prayer about my husband follow up that is clear of cancer. I also want to thank you for your prayers

God Bless You and Keep You

Thank you very much! I am so relieved that you received my request and that the Novena has started already that it brought tears to my eyes. It is wonderful that you put this type of service on-line! My grandmother has always done novenas, but she will be thrilled to know that this is now available to a wider audience!

E.C., Hawaii

Dear Father Michael:

I am enclosing a $10.00  check for one Novena to Saint Jude for my Step-Mother.  I wrote to you before and I have to tell you that she has improved to the point that she drove her car by herself a short distance to the dentist the other day.  The doctors relented and gave her a procedure that helped for now.

She was thrilled when I told her I had a Novena said for her through Saint Jude (and she is not Catholic - but knows about Novenas).

Her birthday is ---- and she will be ---.  I would like another Novena for her as a birthday gift.

My surprise shortly after requesting a Novena from you to Saint Jude for financial help came with a raise at my job, and a special program which paid off all my credit cards.

Thank you Saint Jude for interceding.

J.R.

Dear Father Michael,

I just got a job thanks to having you say a Novena to Saint Jude for me! I really needed the money, too! Saint Jude came through for me. Enclosed is my Novena of Thanksgiving to Saint Jude!

S.S., California

Dear Father Michael,

Needed help with some health issues and St. Jude came through!  Thanks for making the Novena to him.

R.D.

Dear Father Michael,

My husband had a Biopsy of the Prostate that was positive. The doctor offer surgery or Radiation. We are very devouted of St Jude.We went for a second opinion and the new doctor took multiple biopsies and they came back negative.

The new doctor is the Chairman at the University of Miami. His approach is to do nothing, and just watch my husband every six month because of the first biopsy and strong family history of the disease.

Thank You St Jude, our prayers were answered again.  Thanks much for making the Novena.

M.D.

Dear Father Michael,

I don't know if you will remember me or not, but I was the lady who asked all the questions about praying for healing for a friend of mine and deliverance of addictions, "ism's", and I sent in 5 novena requests also. Well, anyway, God has been answering some of those prayers, It is fantastic!

R.

God and Saint Jude hear the prayers of God's Ordained Mediators as proven by the many Testimonials found here, on this Testimonials web page.

The bottom line is that this means that the actual Novena Prayers to Saint Jude that are used here at the Shrine of Saint Jude WORK as proven by the many Testimonials found on this Testimonials web page.

The primary reason WHY these Novena Prayers to Saint Jude WORK is because these are the Novena Prayers which, as an Ordained Catholic Priest, and therefore, as one of God's Ordained Mediators, I have used for many, many decades which have gotten the results about which you read from those Testimonials that are the more recent Testimonials which are on this web page!

I look forward to making the 9-Day Novenas to Saint Jude Thaddeus for your intentions!

But, just remember, the sooner you send in your Novena intentions on the Novena Form, along with your Stipend, the sooner I can begin to make the 9-Day Novenas to Saint Jude Thaddeus for your intentions!  Will YOU be the very next person to send me your very own Testimonial to be put here, on this Testimonials web page?!  DO IT NOW!

God Bless You!

Father Michael,

Thank you for so graciously and kindly printing my last testimony to the power of Saint Jude!  I must update you on the latest of miracles Saint Jude brought forth through his prayers for me to Our Lord God, and Our Savior Jesus Christ!

Since I  last wrote about my oldest son getting a job, the time had come due for our medical insurance and car insurance premiums to be paid.( Because my husband does not have a job right now, we are having to pay the very expensive COBRA insurance and because my youngest son works, and drives but is only 16, the auto insurance cost had more than doubled.)  There was no way we would have the money in time!  I prayed very hard for Saint Jude to pray that a miracle be sent as I had no idea what else to do!

SAINT JUDE provided that miracle through his prayers to God and Jesus Christ, and a MIRACLE DID HAPPEN!  Out of nowhere, on the day before these payments were due, my best friend told me of a man who may want to buy a van that we had.  (We had previously not had any responses to our attempts to sell this Van!)!  IN the course of just a few hours, we met with my friend who took us to this man, who bought our van and Paid us in Cash THAT DAY!

I am amazed and so very humbled at the power of Saint Jude and the grace and mercy shown to me by God Almighty and Jesus Christ through Saint Jude's Prayers for me!  I am no longer skeptical and my  heart has no reason to be heavy any longer!  I know I will never be alone anymore!  (I didn't realize that I never really was alone, until now!)

I am stilling praying To Saint Jude for his assistance for my husband to get a job and for God's will to be done for my marriage (which is in a shambles due to adultery and violence) but I also want to pray for others in my life who need help.  Please, please Father Michael, I Pray with All My Heart that You will Print this as my testimony to the POWER of MY Special Patron Saint JUDE!  I pray others will find their way to seek out the patronage of SAINT JUDE so that their desperate cases may be relieved as mine have been!

With Humble Thanks and Praise to Saint Jude, Jesus Christ Our Savior, and God Almighty, I am

Father Michael,

I forgot to mention miracle bonuses, as I've seen them described on the testimonial page--My husband DID qualify for the extended unemployment benefits, so we blessed with that as well !   Saint Jude has changed my life, my heart and my despair into amazement and BELIEF!

THANK YOU SAINT JUDE!  You are Truly my special and very powerful Patron Saint!  I am forever devoted to you and to Jesus Christ, and to God Almighty!

Humbly,

Thank You!

Father Michael,

This is my first time ever requesting a novena to Saint Jude.  (I am not catholic, but my mother was born and raised catholic and opened my eyes as a young girl to this religion.  My father was not catholic and was in military, so we were exposed to many different religions:)

I Pray with all My Heart that you will print this as a testimony to the miraculous works of Saint Jude., and to my utmost and very humble Thanks and praise to Saint Jude as my very special and powerful Saint, and God, and Jesus Christ!!

My Husband and oldest son have both been out of work.  My husband has been very depressed and it has gotten worse and worse as the months have passed.  This past week he received his last unemployment check and  it appears he is unable to receive the emergency benefits due to applying two days too soon.  Anyway, I started my novena to Saint Jude only three days ago (this is day four).  I prayed according to the prayers on this site, but I must admit to having a heavy and skeptical heart.  I have been praying for my husband and my oldest son to get a job to help us out of the severe financial situation we are in right now. I have a disability and this is the only income we have right now. Plus my oldest son just completed his first year of college and although he is an honors student, he had a very terrible second semester which has caused him to have to take summer school. We have no money for this nor can he get a loan or scholarship at this time we have been told!

My first miracles came yesterday!  A letter came in the mail to my son regarding summer work opportunity.  He called the number, went for the interview and got the job!  He is only 18 years old and there were 25 other applicants, some with completed degrees!

Not only this, but the pay is twice what anyone he knows is making!  And the job has flexible hours so that he may continue college AND they are even willing to transfer him to work in the town where he goes to college once summer is over!!! They also have a college scholarship program!  Incredible Blessings!  Thank You with All My Heart Saint Jude!

I am still praying for my husband to get a job with medical benefits so that we no longer have to pay the very expensive COBRA insurance we must have due to my disability. I am also praying hard that God's Will will be done regarding the shambles my marriage is in.  (My husband and I will be married 20 years in July, but are barely hanging on)!  I know that I am only three days into this Novena but I had to share this incredible Grace and miracles that have been given to me!

Thank you Saint Jude!  Glory be to God the Father, and Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, Forever!  Thank You again and again Saint Jude!  You are truly amazing!

Please print this Father Michael, as it may help others who are not catholic, but who, like me are very desperate for help! Miracles are forthcoming with FAITH!!

Sincerely,

I.S.

2 parts of a 3 part novena request I made to St. Jude were answered during the time of your solemn novena to St. Jude.

1. My husband has ended his relationship with another woman and committed himself to our marriage. We are in counseling and he is committed to gaining my back my trust in him.

2. My husband has realized that his discomfort with the Church was not caused by the Church, but by his own actions over several years (cognitive disassociation). He is now going to Mass.

3. My husband still needs a job. He lost his job this summer, while in the midst of his affair. But, yesterday, on St. Jude's Feast Day, he got a call from a recruiter with job possibility.

I have been praying to St. Jude for many months about the above concerns. Thanks to his intercession, my prayers are being answered.

You may use this on your testimonial page on the internet. Initials only please.

Thanks to your Novena to St. Jude my aches and pains associated with reflux esophagus disease has much improved.

Dear Father Michael,

I had bad back problems and needed surgery.  Before the Novena to Saint Jude was completed, my back was miraculously cured!  The X-Rays proved it and the doctors scratched their heads in disbelief!  Thanks be to God and to Saint Jude!

Thank you St. Jude for your help in the impossibility of me being able to complete a class without failing.  With your help, I will now pass.

I know it is not a life threatening crisis like most endure, but thank you!

I am forever grateful for this great favor!  Thanks for doing the Novena for me!

Dear Father Michael,

Please publish this:

I am halfway through my novena. here is what I am and have prayed for : I have a very cruel landlord whom I pay promptly every month but he still harasses me on the phone and comes to bother me at the apartment. I prayed to St. Jude and the situation was permenantly handled, also with help from my father's phone call! :)

I prayed that my husband and I would be lead to a solution, whatever God's will. We separated a year ago and he thought the marriage was over and started seeing someone else. He is 26, she told him she was 22. She was only 17 (although she looks 30!). Through prayer, my husband put this entire relationship behind him and wants to regain our trust and rebuild this marriage and family! He is also reading the bible everyday! I never thought this possible. All he wants is forgiveness now. I am still praying for help with our just debts to start fresh but with wisdom this time. I am also praying for a job singing or a contract and finally for my husband to get through the legal trouble that this affair has caused him. (Forgive this!) He is in jail for this and I pray he comes home. He has always had a perfect record and an excellent family and a great education. Please help us St. Jude and God.

Everyone have faith!!!!

Love CK THANKS FOR EVERYTHING. YOU ARE A WONDERUL SAINT!

The St. Jude Thaddeus novena really worked for me! Not only did St. Jude come through for a part-time job to help me supplement my income, but he did it FAST! Thanks, St. Jude! Here's my new novena-it's the one marked for the thanksgiving for anwering a previous novena.

Dear Father Michael,

I had a number of special intentions and thanks to your Novenas for me to Saint Jude, I was not only granted my intentions PLUS Saint Jude even gave me a bonus!  Thank you God and Saint Jude!

Dear Father Michael,

I really needed some financial help.  After you got my intentions and my stipends for three Masses plus my five Novenas to Saint Jude, I started getting results, almost immediately after the first Mass and while the very first Novena to Saint Jude was still in progress!  Here are my stipends for three Masses of thanksgiving and my stipends for five Novenas to Saint Jude in thanksgiving!

I promised Saint Jude I would ask you to publish this testimonial.  Thanks for your help and your great and wonderful spiritual help that you provide!

Most especially, thanks to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the Blessed Virgin Mary and Saint Jude for all of their great help!

I prayed to St. Jude for my mother that her bone marrow test would come back clear and it did - there were no traces of leukemia in her bone marrow! I have been praying to St. Jude for about 4-5 months now every single day and he always hears my prayers.

I am beyond grateful to St. Jude for all he has done for me and my family. I love you, St. Jude.

JRD, Texas

I went to see my regualr physician who was concerned regardig a polyp that was on my cervix. He also stated that my uterus was enlarged. At that time, he performed a pap smear and ordered me to have a pelvic sonogram. I was very depressed when I left with the news. When I returned in a week, he stated that I had an abnormal pap smear and my sonogram showed some abnormal size and fibroids. He stated that he wanted me to see a specialist because of my polyp and abnormal pap smear. I have prayed to St. Jude for intercessions before but I was especially intense at this time since he had indicated a possible of cancer. I was not able to get in to the specialist until two weeks ago. He at that time, took a biopsy of the polyp because it looked different. On Thursday of the following week, the specialist left a message and stated that no carcinoma was seen and the polyp was benign and to return in four months for a follow-up. I was so relieved and so thankful that I started crying. I want to thank St. Jude for his intercessions. Thank you again.

Dear Father Michael,

I was in desperate need of a computer.  After you included my Novena intentions in your Annual Novena to Our Lady of Sorrows and the Novena to Saint Jude for this intention, I got my computer!
Much profound gratitude to Our Lady of Sorrows and to Saint Jude!

Thanks to both of you!

Dear Fr. Michael,

Please make a "Prayer of Thanksgiving" Novena to Saint Jude for a beautiful Baby who was born healthy on 7/5/07.  My Daughter, unmarried, has done beautifully Mothering this Angel.  The Father is loving and involved.

Also please make a Novena to Saint Jude to continue to work with M. as she works to raise this Angel.  That she will find a decent job that will provide for them as they live in a rural area.

I trust in God's plan and in St. Jude's guidance.

Respectfully,

Thanks be to Almighty God, Our Blessed Mother and St. Jude for all of their help this past year! I had lots of debts and other financial problems, some of them involving civil court cases. But everything has worked out not just well, but VERY well!

Saint Jude has been helping not only me but many members of my family for many years! Novenas to Saint Jude have become a way of life for us and, as a result, our way of life has greatly improved!

Some years ago when my wife had a burst appendix and it took many, many hours before the doctors could determine what the problem was, I just kept saying my Rosary to Our Blessed Mother and praying to St. Jude.. I remember she told me as I rushed her to the emergency room that she felt that she was dying! After emergency surgery around midnight, and after she survived that ordeal, she was taken up to her room. Later that day she was up walking around! The doctors and nurses knew how severe her situation had been and how close to death she had been just a few hours before that! They could not understand how she had recouperated so fast! Besides receiving the Last Rites, because of her critical condition, which obviously helped her, all of the rosaries and prayers to St. Jude I feel clearly helped greatly in this "miracle" as well!

Again, thanks to Almighty God, Our Blessed Mother and St. Jude and the Novenas to St. Jude you made for us!

J.R.

I began praying to St. Jude about a year ago when in the midst of seemingly insurmountable financial difficulties that were bringing me to the brink of hopelessness. Thanks to his help, the situation has completely reversed itself and I feel much more confident about things in general. I am now concerned over some health issues, which I am now placing in the hands of St. Jude. I feel that my spiritual sickness is having an effect on my physical body, and am hopeful that through St. Jude's intercession, I will be healed on both counts.

Thank you, St. Jude.

Dear Father Michael,

Ever since my bankruptcy, I have been wanting to re-establish my credit.  It seemed logical and prudent that one way to do this would be to get a credit card, buy a few inexpensive items, and make payments on a timely basis.  At first I contacted my local bank for a secured credit card where I would put a certain amount of money into a savings account which amount would then be "frozen" and used as collateral for the credit card which would have a limit of whatever the balance would be in my "frozen" savings account.  After applying to my bank, I was very upset to learn that I was turned down.

To make a long story short, after including this intention in one of my Novenas to Saint Jude which you were so kind to say for me, I just recently applied elsewhere and was approved!  Plus, I did not even need to open a savings account for collateral!  Plus! Plus!  The credit line is double what I had hoped I could get!!!

Thank you God!  Thank you Saint Jude-AGAIN!

Your friend,
J.R.

My boyfriend has gained weight which has brought down his self-esteem. He lacks motivation even though he has goals. Please allow him to feel better about himself and get him started to lose that weight which burdens his mind as well as his body. Please give him motivation to be active! It also affects his schoolwork... He is very intelligent and could get perfect grades if he were more motivated. Please help him to strive to achieve these things.

Thank you very much.

P.S. St. Jude has helped me in desperate times when I thought I couldn't survive. I thank him with all my heart and forever remain devoted.  I am confident your Novena to Saint Jude for my intentions will be successful.

K.B.

You made several Novenas to Saint Jude for me.  There were two of these intentions which were most important and which were in fact granted by Saint Jude!
