St. Jude Answers Prayers

Here is a testimony about one example of St. Jude answering prayers for someone who prays with us here at PrayMoreNovenas.com:

“[My son] had a hard time and struggled, but I believe that God heard my prayers to St. Jude asking for my son to be successful — and the prayers were answered. My son passed all his exams and worked his way up from the lowest position in a hotel and today he is General Manager of this hotel. As a little boy, he had dyslexia and so school was not an easy road for him but with constant prayers to St. Jude, he succeeded.”

– Annabella

About St. Jude

Saint Jude was one of Jesus’ twelve original apostles, so we can conclude that he was also at the Last Supper. Saint Jude is also known by the name Thaddeus, which means sweetness and gentleness of character.

He is not the traitor Judas Iscariot.

Saint Jude, rather, followed Jesus faithfully until His crucifixion, and then later worked on evangelization. Very little is known about his life, but we do know that he died as a martyr — some say around 65AD, giving his life to Jesus Christ.

He is now one of the most invoked saints for intercession in desperate situations because his New Testament letter stressed the importance of a faithful person persevering in the environment of harsh circumstances.
