Thank you, St. Jude! Print E-mail
By Matthew Hanley   
Sunday, 30 October 2011

Last summer I drove up to Portland, Oregon to visit my cousin. The melanoma that had apparently responded so well to previous treatment had in fact spread to his lungs.

His type of melanoma was aggressive – typically only about a 5-10 percent survival rate. So he was looking at about a year to live, maybe even less. Like so many others, I just wanted to pay him a visit.

We had a great weekend around the house with family. We even had time to drive out to his ranch in the eastern part of the state. We talked about which saints we’d pray to for healing. A lot of great saints came to mind. We had time for some good reminiscing.

Just after college, I went to Jakarta, Indonesia to help him on a cholera project he was directing. He was the brilliant, yet modest, hard working if sometimes temperamental, American doctor with the exceedingly generous outsized personality. He thought workaday things in Indonesia moved way, way too slow, and his demanding idiosyncrasies sometimes puzzled them.

But everyone loved him, and wanted to be at table with him when the day was done. The Indonesians we worked with good-naturedly took to calling us “ten.” I was on the taller and thinner side, and he was, well, not quite as tall or as thin. To them we looked like a 1 and a 0 walking down the street. We were – it sounds even better in Indonesian – the sepupu (cousins) known as sepulu (ten).

I was so grateful for that weekend together – quality time while he was in good health and good spirits. The day I left was the day he started his treatment, which promised to be brutal – though he was able to enroll in an experimental therapy program that had improved somewhat the chances of survival among the dozen or so people in total who had ever tried it.

Several weeks later I resolved, out of the blue, that I would pray to St. Jude. His name had not come up when we discussed our “go-to saints” together, and I can’t say why I settled upon him. The patron saint of difficult and desperate cases, St. Jude is also known as the “forgotten apostle,” and sure enough, I had forgotten about him. But his feast day was coming up later that month – 28 October [i.e., just this past Friday]. There was a St. Jude shrine not so far from where I live, within a Dominican parish in San Francisco. I would go there, and make a novena.

On the seventh day, I got an unexpected email from my cousin. He reported that tests during his first check up revealed that his tumors had “vanished.” He was elated. The rest of us were all blown away. Only then did I recall hearing somewhere that St. Jude is also known for being prompt with his assistance.


         The Apostle Jude by Anthonis van Dyck, c. 1620

My cousin would still need to proceed with the rest of the treatment regimen for the next several months. But what had happened? Perhaps the new treatment worked; maybe it will become standard for those in similar straights. I don’t know. And so many other people were praying for him – people much closer and much dearer to him. Perhaps it can be chalked up to a combination of prayer and medical treatment.

Either way, I was thrilled. But I also found myself in a spot I’d never quite been before.

The development was so extraordinary that I had to take seriously that part of the novena prayer which contains a promise: “I promise you, O blessed JUDE, to be ever mindful of this great favor, and I will never cease to honor you as my special and powerful patron and do all in my power to encourage devotion to you.

So to fulfill my promise, I ultimately decided to commit that grave email sin: I hit “reply all” and told everyone about St. Jude. My cousin responded not only with gratitude, but by telling me that his confirmation name – which I had no way of knowing – was Jude. There were other coincidences like that.

And so I relate this story here, to the family of TCT readers, solely to encourage you and yours to go to St. Jude with any difficult and desperate cases – even ones that may not be so clear cut or life-threatening.

There are times when the gifts we receive by Divine Providence are unmistakable, even for those not accustomed to seeing. We don’t always receive what we ask for, of course. But there is something in the act of asking itself, which, like all the other forms of prayer, properly orients us. It requires self knowledge (we are not God, He is); it involves relationship (we become ourselves through relationships); it anticipates gratitude and nurtures confidence in the God who loves us, and is with us, come what may.

On one of the lesser used pathways down to the Grotto at Lourdes, there is a simple monument donated by a blind Italian woman as an expression of her gratitude. She had come to Lourdes for healing and left still blind – though not unchanged. By the experience. By asking. By seeking and encountering. By learning to trust God. It reads:

Recovering the faith is greater than recovering sight.
(Retrouver la Foi c’est plus que retrouver la Vue).
I think that is why we are enjoined to share the good news.

I am so grateful for this column today as my wife and I have learned of a situation that appears to be hopeless. We have started a Novena to St. Jude. St. Jude, pray for us, and “I promise you, O blessed JUDE, to be ever mindful of this great favor, and I will never cease to honor you as my special and powerful patron and do all in my power to encourage devotion to you.”

This past fall my family received devastating news. I could not sleep, eat, or think straight for weeks. Finally, I typed patron saint of desperate cases into my browser and found St. Jude. I prayed his prayer and Novena and received immediate consolation! I fell in love with this saint. The truly devastating part of our problem is over (solved in our favor thanks to St. Jude's intercession) but years of healing must take place. I will continue to pray to St. Jude for the rest of my life.

Thank you so much for this article. I'm facing a very difficult situation at work which has been going on for far too long - since February My teachingUnion is involved and agree that I have a genuine grievance and we drafted it yesterday. This morning I decided that I have had enough, I can't go back until the situation is resolved. I don't have any hope however. because nothing has worked in the past. I have a Drs appointment and will be signed off sick but it is not a long term solution. My husband is very worried and angry with me (I don't know why as he said he would support any decision I make) Please pray with me to St jude.

I can also attest to the wonderful intervention of St Jude. A few years ago I was struggling with a problem. I prayed to Ss. Joseph, Anthony, Dymphna, and Jude. As so often happens, my prayers were answered in such a positive way that I could never have foreseen such an outcome.
In 2007, when my family was blessed with a new baby boy, we named him Jude in honor of the Apostle. God bless, and thanks for the article.

In 2009 I was praying in the hospital chapel for our two year old grandson, complications from the removal of a brain tumor. I am a new Catholic convert and was going for broke, so prayed at Mary's statue, Jesus' statue, St Joseph's statue, and finally St Jude's statue. The resolution of the problem that night led me back to the chapel to say thank you: to St Mary, Jesus, Joseph, and --- there was no St Jude statue. It was gone. It had never been there (I asked.) Our grandson is perfectly well. I eschew superstition -- but I am in love with my Family, in Heaven and on earth.

Many people in a small town in Northern California believe in St.Jude's miracles and actually there is a chapel in his honor. This small town is named Philo in Anderson Valley.

St. Jude, I am so grateful to you for helping me and for praying for me, through my struggles while trying to complete college.

What seemed impossible, hopeless, and often depressing, was actually achievable.

I have finished my degree, in nursing, and I now have a great job that I love. I felt so challenged and there were many barriers, but I pulled through.

Thank you for helping me do this, for the strength I needed and for the power to pull through.

Thank you Saint Jude for interceding. My husband was an alcoholic and didn't stop drinking even after the kids and I left him. I prayed a novena and he has been sober ever since (7 months now!). My family and I are still going through terrible circumstances as we are separated because of immigration laws and I am currently praying another novena that my family will be reunified in a land where we can all live and work legally. As it stands, our family being together again will takes years, but because St. Jude is the Saint of Impossible causes I know that he is interceding for us again and through Jesus' name my family will find a way to be together.

I would like to thank St Jude his intercessions. My best friend had pneumonia earlier this year and she recovered from it. However this left her with phlegm in her lungs and she had to cough it out every morning. What was worse was that the phlegm was tinged with blood. She had been to several doctors, including specialists, but nothing was found and the medication she took had no effect too. I decided to pray for her, asking St Jude for his intercession as well remembering that he is the patron saint for desperate cases. Yesterday after receiving a call from her, I learnt that she has stopped coughing up the phlegm and it was like the phlegm had totally vanished.

Thank you, Saint Jude.
You have taken me out of a fire that would have literally destroyed my life, mentally, emotionally and physically. St Jude, please I really need you to help me with your prayers for what's going in my mind at this moment, so confused about everything, my life has gone off track, and I'm getting a lot of anxiety, St Jude, you know my problems, you know how I feel about what's going currently, and how I wish to guided to the right girl, whom I will spend the rest of my earthly life with, marry, and have children. Please St Jude, make me a better person, I trust you so much, and I believe you do hear us. Please do what feels to be the impossible.

Oh Blessed St Jude, intercede for me, and for us all.

People, please BELIEVE and ALWAYS pray to St Jude, he does the impossible. I had to THANK him on this, I had promised.

And St Jude, I WILL ALWAYS gratefully devote your name, and always be mindful of the great favor granted me by God.
Please St Jude, my life is in your hands, once again take me out of fire, like I know you can. Thank you. Amen
God Bless you all.

PLEASE very important that we make this Saint well known, please when prayer answered, buy some St Jude prayer cards, even just 30 at 30cents each, not a lot of money, and leave at a church.
Thank you again.

THANK U ST. JUDE. Just googled saints for prosperity and money this morning after looking for a saint to pray to so my blogs I just put up last week with adsense would start to make money. Just put them up 8 days ago and have been getting a good amount of traffic (good traffic for first 8 days anyway). Just didnt have any ADSENSE clicks yet or orders on links. But after praying just this morning I just checked one of my stats that earns money when somoene clicks a link and then orders a product and I just made my first sale and comminssion today. THE SAME DAY I PRAYED TO SAINT JUDE. That being one of my prayers. Thats no coincidence. I wouldnt have that sale right now if I hadn't asked st. jude for it. The blogs have only been up for a week and probably normally wouldn't really be making any money for atleast a month of traffic. THANKS ST. JUDE. And I know you'll answer my prayers on my broker investments and adsense clicks.

If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believeth. Mark 9:23

The good Apostle, St. Jude Thaddeus, became gloriously renown as the most powerful Patron Saint of Desperate Cases because he was eclipsed for centuries in history. Sadly, for ages he was forgotten despite being a faithful servant and friend of Jesus. God praised and rewarded St. Jude with an uncanny power to help the desperate, to assist those during impossible situations.

St. Jude, thanks for your help throughout my life. You have assisted me with both trivial and demonstrative prayers. I am in complete awe over your rapid response and aide and I am humbled by your exactness and timeliness to meet my needs. You have never failed me during times of trial and tribulation, and words cannot articulate how grateful I am.

The Lord God will surely hear your prayers through the powerful intercession of our glorious Apostle, St. Jude Thaddaeus, patron of the desperate cases. Thank you God for answering my prayer; thank you St. Jude for interceding on my behalf. I will encourage devotion to you always.

I came to say a BIG Thank you and to give a testimony of the miracles that happened in St' Judes name. I prayed to him only two days and my prayer was granted. We were caught up in a legal issue for realestate and we knew that we were innocent. At that time no one else could help us other than seeking for help from a lawyer. We were worried and the only help that I knew was calling out God through the intercession of St Jude. And its a miracle it happened in such a way that without hurting anyone or withouht any issue the problem resolved just in two days after praying. I forwarded the Prayer to St Jude through email and just in minutes my request was answered. It is a miracle... Praise be to God!!!

With St. Jude's help, my prayers have been answered...again! I can only say thank you, and fulfill my promise to "encourage devotion" to him. If you have a problem or if you need help with anything, I advise you to say the novena to St. Jude. (Recommended: nine times a day, for nine consecutive days.) Your prayers will be answered :)
PRAYER TO ST. JUDE

Most holy apostle, St. Jude, faithful servant
and friend of Jesus, the Church honors and
invokes you universally, as the patron of
hopeless cases, of things almost despaired
of. Pray for me, I am so helpless and alone.
Make use I implore you, of that particular
privilege given to you, to bring visible and
speedy help where help is almost despaired
of. Come to my assistance in this great need
that I may receive the consolation and
help of heaven in all my necessities,
tribulations, and sufferings, particularly

Thank you Saint Jude for granting my prayer and helping with my relationship. I am sharing the prayer below so all may know and be blessed.

"Saint Jude, we have problems in our relationship. Beg Almighty God to give us the light to see ourselves and each other as we really are. Help us to grow daily in self-knowledge and mutual love, while at the same time developing our potential to love and be loved. Help us, Saint Jude, to see and root out every manifestation of selfishness, vanity, and childish self-seeking -- those hidden enemies of love and maturity. Show us that by learning to love and being filled with love, we may complement and nurture each other as we share our lives together."

What a coincidence that I came across this beautiful article. I live 3 block away from the church that houses that St. Jude statue (called St. Dominics for any interested). I have been going there to pray for my own miracle. It is personal hardship in my life that directed me to that chuch and I felt like I experienced 2 miracles that day: a statue of St. Jude to pray to and a flyer for a new group forming for catholics that are lost and need to come home. Reading your beautiful essay brought me hope and peace.

Some years ago a brother-in-law was diagnosed with an aggressive form of prostate cancer. He was told he had about 18 months to live. He was a religious skeptic. I said a novena to St. Jude. A year and a half ago, about 25 years after the cancer diagnosis, he died of something other than cancer. Thank you St. Jude.

Thank you St. Jude for blessing me with a beautiful and meaningful life and occupation. I prayed for a position in the social work field and you blessed me by allowing me to work your miracles at the children's emergency receiving shelter, transitional housing for women leaving domestic violence relationships, and a domestic violence shelter. I asked for love and you returned my old friends to me and brought Chris and I closer than ever before, I asked that Chris' relationship status be cleared before we proceed further and he confirmed it two weeks ago, I asked to be healthier- my daughter and I strive for that everyday. Thank you for those blessings. I pray every night for my one fervent hope and love. Im learning patience and hope at the end, you will grant the remaining request and prayer. Please St. Jude, allow Chris and I to follow through on our promises to one another and bless us with a loving and faithful partnership. I know lord that he and i were always meant for one another. Thank you.

I just want to share that through the intercession of St. Jude I received tremendous healing... I suffered from not being able to wean myself off of sugar, which was ruining my life... Well; I attest St. Jude's prayers, and Jesus Christ, to my being able to do so. It was truely a miracle, for I do not react to sugar the way that most people do. Thank you for your intercession, St. Jude, (and Jesus :-)))). Please continue to pray for me, as I need to be able to use the same willpower (that I did not have to wean myself off of sugar), to make the decision and committment to give my life to you, Lord, in the vocation you call me to. I would like release from fear, selfishness, and a divided heart; to be one with you in your Holy Spirit. Please help me to immediately make the right choices regarding my boyfriend, without turning away from your plan for me, Lord. AMEN

I just want to say Thank you St. Jude for answered prayers. My stepson was alcoholic and was near death due to his addiction. Me and my husband would buy him a St. Jude medal and he would lose it and every year at Chrismtas we would buy him a new. We prayed to St. Jude for him always and this February he will be sober for 4 years and he wears his St. Jude medal always. He and his partner are expecting a baby in June. They said she could not have any children...truly a blessing. St. Jude one of our saints whom we love..my husband prayers to him everyday. Funny thing was an elder in our community told my husband years ago that she had prayed to St. Jude for him and he turned his life around and he is a good husband. Thank you St. Jude.

My mother was devoted to St. Jude and had a miracle as well. She was bed ridden after scarlet fever in her teens, and had Addison's disease, which was the result of her addrenal glands being destroyed. She was a given last rites and thought to not live long. She underwent testing as a test subject hoping a cure could be found for others. She was told a senator's son also had the condition but no name. Later she found out it was JFK. The synthetic hormones developed, saved both of their lives! My mother wasn't to have children, but wanted them and prayed to St. Jude and ended up with three healthy ones. She was the first with the condition to do so. My sister was named Judith after him in his honor. My confermatiuon name is Jude.

St. Jude was our class patron all through high school. Every year when we selected him, our whole class would break into a loud applause. He has worked too many miracles for me to mention. I always thank him, but the only thing that I could think do to is to contribute monthly to St. Jude's Hospital in thanksgiving for a lifetime of prayers answered. Thank God for the intercession of St. Jude.

St Jude is amazing! I was introduced to St Jude by a sister inlaw. Being a recently converted catholic at that time, I found the novena to St Jude to be straight forward. He came toour help when I had pregnancy complications in the first three years of marriage. My husband and I now have two lovely sons one of whom we named Thaddeus in honor and as a constant reminder of St Jude. He is indeed a patron saint for desperate situations.

I used to recite the novena of St. Jude quite often whenever there were all sorts of problems and issues in me or my family member’s lives. But for the last year or so I had forgotten about St. Jude. He was not completely forgotten, but I used to call upon the saints who I used to pray to including St. Jude and thank them for all the past favours.
Couple of days ago I saw this article but I did not bother to read it. Yesterday I got a very disturbing news about my family members job situation. I was very very desperate so I decided to read this article. As I read through, It gave me so much comfort that I shared it with my family members and started saying the Novena from today for this grave situation. I am feeling much comforted and I Know that Our Loving God and St Jude will lift us up from this situation.
Friends kindly pray for all people on this site who are going through different situation.

St. Jude, thank you for you unceasing and unbroken intercession. Never have you failed me, and through taxing times you continue to amaze me. Most recently, I truly appreciate your help after surgery- the healing process has been remarkable and rapid! Please continue to help me during the recovery process, healing properly each day with no complications.

Please send your special intentions for healing and remembrance of those affected by cancer to the Shrine of St. Jude online.

We pray together:
God of healing mercy, in Jesus your Son you stretch out your hand in compassion, restoring the sinner, healing the sick, and lifting up those bowed down. Embrace us now in your loving care, particularly those afflicted with cancer, for whom this intention is offered. May the Spirit of Jesus bring us all health in soul and body, that with joy and thanksgiving we may praise you for your goodness, through the same Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Oh glorious apostle St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor who delivered thy beloved Master into the hands of His enemies has caused thee to be forgotten by many, but the Church honors and invokes thee universally as the patron of hopeless cases--of things despaired of. Pray for me who am so miserable; make use, I implore thee, of that particular privilege accorded thee of bringing visible and speedy help where help is almost despaired of. Come to my assistance in this great need, that I may receive the consolations and succor of heaven in all my necessities, tribulations and sufferings, particularly (mention your request), and that I may bless God with thee and all the elect throughout eternity. I promise thee, O blessed St. Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor, and I will never cease to honor thee as my special and powerful patron, and to do all in my power to encourage devotion to thee. Amen

I'm so THANKFUL to St. Jude! My auntie is 91 years old today, but about three weeks ago she took a really nasty fall at the convalescent home she was at. Through perseverance and detective work, I found out what hospital she was taken to. The hospital would not release any information to me, because I wasn't on the hospital list and I couldn't get any information regarding her progress or how serious the fall was, because of federal privacy laws and no matter how much I begged and pleaded for them to tell me, they would not tell me anything. I live 800 miles away from her and can't readily go see her. I started to pray to the Infant of Prague and St. Jude. Meantime, I called her son, who really isn't very communicative with us and I left him a message to please put me down as a interested family member, so that the hospital would inform me as to my auntie's progress and today when I asked if my name was on the list, they said "yes," youR name is on here. I had been trying for weeks to get on the list. THANK YOU a million times, ST. JUDE and for all the favors you've granted me in the past!!! To all here, please DO NOT give up praying, because you're prayers WILL be granted! God bless you all! -Ella

St Jude is one you can always count on. He never fails. In the name of Jesus Christ, may God bless and keep you always! :)

Dearest St. Jude, I am in desperate need of your help and prayer. Please grant me this favor that I ask and pray whole heartedly to Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Please intercede in my relationship through prayer and with the Holy Intercession of the Most Holy Trinity One God, grant me this miracle with Tawfick and my son Jarel. Please St. Jude, I am miserable, desperate and brokenhearted. May you help me in leading Tawfick back to me, guide us in resolving our issues, strengthen the relationship and may the Great and Almighty Father bless us with the gift of marriage. Please St. Jude, I am begging you, grant me this miracle. Please help me. Thank you.

Thank you St. Jude for your intercession. Thank you in asking God to help me receive 100% Service-Connection Disability (T&P) in such a quick and efficient manner. It demanded a miracle and you came through! I am now able to take care of myself and my family.

I ask that you continue to take special interest in my family and our situation and help us to build a stronger and loving commitment to God and each other. Help us to discover all of God's blessings and glory through you so that not only is my faith strengthened, but that I will do the Lord's Will and service. May my family continue to be strengthened by power of prayer and the mercy of our loving God.

I will be ever mindful of this great favor you have given to me and will always honor you as my special and powerful patron. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you St. Jude. Amen.

My Name is Cynthia Jerry i have a testimony to say; I have been married for five years without any child, nor pregnancy and so i became very sad and lost hope in life because my doctor told me there is no way for me to get pregnant and this really make life so hard for me and this made my husband to turn away from me. My sister in-law told me about DR ASOKA from the Internet, how he has helped people with this similar problem that i am going through so i contacted him and explained to him. He told me not to worry and that everything we soon be okay. He cast a spell and it was a miracle, to my greatest surprise three days later my husband came back to apologize for all he has done and told me he is fully ready to support me in any thing i want,few months later i got pregnant and gave birth to twins (girls) we are now a happy family. Thanks to DR ASOKA for saving my relationship and for also helping others too. continue your good work, If you are interested to contact DR ASOKA for your solution now EMAIL him at ( drasokasolutionhome@outlook . com) for any help you want him to do for you. Thank you Great DR. once again and may your gods reward you for your good deeds.

I am so grateful and so touched by how my life has changed since I started praying to St.Jude. In only 3 days into my prayers to be exact, God gave me His blessings and my prayers were answered.

I knew that very moment that Jesus ,Mary our Mother & St. Jude have intercede for me and God answered my prayers as I was so lost and so stressed that things wasn't working out for me.

I kept my promise to St .Jude and I am so amazed on how my life is getting better and better each day.

I believe more and more in you now St.Jude that you perform miracles where hope is ,almost despaired of..

I urge everyone to pray to St.Jude as he will intercede for all of you to God. Pray with all your heart and when you pray with his image in your mind be thankful in your heart for the help you are about to receive. Also promises are to be kept as a gratitude and trust me you will see your life change in ways you least expected.


Thank you St.Jude, for you have given me back my hope and peace of mind which I had lost. I am now feeling great every day and I will always keep you in my heart and mind as my most powerful and special patron.

Thank God! Thank you Jesus! Thank you Mary our Mother! & thank you St.Jude!Amen

Dear Saint Jude,
Please give me a second chance with Michael, the man I love. Help him to know how much I love and care for him. Help him be open to understanding the reasons why I have acted the way I have. I have learned my lesson to not take those you love for granted and that it is essential to include God and faith in your relationship. Let him know that I have changed for the better. Please find a way for us to date, and if possible, bring him back to the same state as me and find him a good job. I promise, if my request is granted, to publish the novena to you and give thanks and share my story with others, so as to encourage devotion to you.

Been a HIV positive is just like been through hell but EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE. So amazing and i want to testify of the good work done by GREAT BABA a very strong and powerful spell caster. GREAT BABA has proved science and scientists wrong for believing and thinking that there is no cure for HIV AIDS but to be sincere this GREAT MAN is so real and powerful. I never thought that this spell will work but this GREAT MAN has proved it to me and it has worked and still working perfectly. My Name is Randy Scott and i was diagnosed of the deadly disease called HIV AIDS in 2011 and i thought that is the end and there will be no hope. Speaking to anyone was always a problem because i was so worried and always in the state of unrest in fact i thought it was over until one blessed day when i was searching for help here on the internet, i came across a testimony about GREAT BABA on how he helped a lady who was HIV positive. At first i thought it was all a lie but i decided to give it a try since there was no option and, when i contacted this MAN he laughed and told me that, that is too small for him to handle but i was still in doubt, and he gave me a form to fill which I did, then he called me and told me that his gods required some items in which he will use in casting a curing spell on me and he told me that it will cost only $500, I sent him the money because I could not find the items. He bought the items and prepared a cure for me, and instructed me on what to do and i OBEYED him completely as he told me. Then he sent a parcel to me through the courier delivery service. I paid for the courier service, I got my parcel, it was a holy water and a pure holy oil as described by GREAT BABA. I took the holy water and the holy oil and after taking it, he told me to go for check up but I was still in doubt and was so afraid to go for the test but i took a bold step and believed that it is well, and i believed all what he has done and all that he has told me. So i went to the hospital for the test it was so amazing, awesome and exciting what seems to be impossible became possible, the VIRUS disappeared completely from my system and I was tested HIV negative. Quickly I called him and told him what happened he congratulated me and today i am a happy man again the way things use to be. Don't you think that this testimony is worth sharing? I promise to tell the world about him and i will keep sharing this testimony till the end because many people has died of AIDS and i want many people who believed that it is over to know that EVERYTHING IS POSSIBLE AND I WANT THEM TO GET HELP FROM THIS SPELL CASTER by contacting him on his email at Highersolutiontemple@yahoo.com for your solution now. If you are hiv positive and you think that it is over i want to tell you that there is hope for you and if you truly and dearly value your life please contact him now. THIS IS REAL HE IS NOT A SCAM, BELIEVE HIM AND DON'T ASK TOO MUCH QUESTIONS. Thank you GREAT BABA and May your good gods keep rewarding you for your good deeds.

PRAYER FOR HEALING OF RELATIONSHIPS
"Saint Jude, we have problems in our relationship. Beg Almighty God to give us the light to see ourselves and each other as we really are. Help us to grow daily in self-knowledge and mutual love, while at the same time developing our potential to love and be loved. Help us, Saint Jude, to see and root out every manifestation of selfishness, vanity, and childish self-seeking -- those hidden enemies of love and maturity. Show us that by learning to love and being filled with love, we may complement and nurture each other as we share our lives together."

I am so thankful to st Jude for granting my request in several times. I am sharing my experience through st Jude here. my sister received a job through the intercession of st Jude. also another sisters marriage is done through the intercession of st Jude in the time of hopeless case. He also allowed various other request such as exam admission ticket bring through his prayer, my itch cured through his prayer, my niece felt down from the bed but through the intercession of st Jude she is well. I am also pray for the nurses who were in critical conditions in the Iraq domestic war, through the intercession of st Jude they have landed safely in the home land. I am also pray for growing my beliefs in prayer st Jude also granted me that request. I am now facing a big challenge but no worry for that because st Jude is with us, and also presented a request to st Jude for curing me, i am believing he will allow me this. Also thank you Jesus for allowing my petitions through st Jude.
