tiggerdooley Lyr Req: Hail Glorious St. Patrick (15) RE: Lyr Req: Hail Glorious St. Patrick 06 Mar 01

Maybe some 'catters could try writing a song for St. Jude - I'm sure we've all identified with the 'hopeless cases' vibe at various points in our lives!!! I imagine Jude to have a bit of a sense of humour.
By the way, praying to him really DOES get you out of a tight spot. All my friends (and some non-friends) would make me recite his prayer before exams, and we'd never fail as miserably as we deserved to.
Seriously, though, he does help the hopeless sinners, especially the lapsed, like me, who haven't been to church for ages, and are seen as undeserving by all the other saints!
Try it:
Prayer to St. Jude (To be said in cases despaired of)
St.Jude, Glorious Apostle, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor has caused you to be forgotten by many, but the true Church invokes you universally as the Patron of things despaired of; pray for me, who am so miserable; pray for me, that finally I may receive the consolations and the succor of Heaven in all my necessities, tribulations and sufferings, particularly [here make your request], and that I may bless God with the Elect throughout Eternity. - Amen.
St. Jude, Apostle, martyr and relative of our Lord Jesus Christ, of Mary and of Joseph, intercede for us.
Now if THAT ain't the blues, I don't know WHAT is!!!
