The Double Novena to St. Jude – 2012

St Jude NovenaWhat does it mean to do a double novena?

It just means that you’re praying two novenas in a row.

Why are we doing a double novena?

Well, it just so happened that St. Jude’s feast day lands 9 days before the election. So, we will pray for 9 days leading up to St. Jude’s feast day for the first novena and then we will do it again leading up to the election.

Sound like a lot? Well, I’m sure St. Jude can handle it!

This double novena has double intentions as well. The election and employment.

I am constantly getting emails requesting prayers for employment and for the election.

Can you pray this novena for your own intentions too?

Of course!

You can post your intentions publicly here.

I look forward to praying with you!

  2. St. Jude, You have never let me down. I feel guilty coming to you to ask for a change in job when so many are out of work.

Please pray for intercession that I may obtain a full-time position with the University so that I may be close to home. I know the pay will be less than I’m making now, but if I am offered the job, please do not let it be so low that I cannot accept the job. I’m forever in your debt and promise to spread your name and miraculous ability.
