Praying the Saint Jude 40 Bead Chaplet
Begin with this prayer:
Saint 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 that, finally, I may receive the consolation and the succor of Heaven in all my necessities and sufferings, particularly — (here make your request) — and that I may bless God with you and all the elect throughout all eternity.
On each bead, recite a Hail Mary with the following invocation:
Saint Jude, Apostle, martyr and relative of Our Lord Jesus Christ, of Mary and of Joseph, intercede for us.
At the end of the chaplet, recite the following prayer:
O Holy Saint Jude, Apostle and Martyr, great in virtue and rich in miracles, near kinsman of Jesus Christ, faithful intercessor of all who invoke your special patronage in time of need, to you I have recourse from the depth of my heart and humbly beg to whom God has given such great power to come to my assistance. Help me in my present and urgent petition. In return I promise to make your name known and cause you to be invoked. Saint Jude pray for us all who invoke your aid. Amen
Prayer to Saint 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 - (here make your request) that I may praise God with you and all the elect forever. I promise, O blessed Saint Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor, to always honor you as my special and powerful patron, and to gratefully encourage devotion to you.
This prayer to Saint Jude closes with a promise to him; “I promise, O blessed Saint Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor, to always honor you as my special and powerful patron, and to gratefully encourage devotion to you.”
“to gratefully encourage devotion to you.”
In creating this, Saint Jude Forty Bead Chaplet, we are gratefully encouraging devotion to this saint, to whom we turn in times of despair.
Saint Jude is known as the patron of desperate cases and is invoked in desperate situations because his New Testament letter stresses that the faithful should persevere in the environment of harsh, difficult circumstances, just as their forefathers had done before them.
Because his name was similar to the traitor Judas Iscariot, many faithful Christians, mistakenly, believed that they would be praying to Iscariot if they prayed to Saint Jude. Because of this, Saint Jude was seldom called upon. He became eager to assist any who prayed to him, to the point of intervening in the direst of circumstances. The Church also wanted to encourage veneration of this "forgotten" disciple and maintained that Saint Jude would intervene in any lost cause to prove his saintliness and zeal for Christ.
Another reason he is invoked in desperate situations is because his New Testament letter stresses that the faithful should persevere in the environment of harsh, difficult circumstances, just as their forefathers had done before them.
Saint Jude is usually depicted wearing green. Because of this, his chaplets and rosaries are traditionally created using green beads. In this edition, we’ve used a sparkling green machine cut green crystal from the Czech Republic. We spaced the crystal with smaller beads in the same color. These crystal beads make up thirty-nine of the chaplet’s forty beads. To add visual focus, we begin the chaplet with one handmade lampwork bead. This limited edition chaplet is completed with an Italian imported Saint Jude center and black enamel crucifix.
It measures 12”.
