Saint Jude has become known as the patron of desperate causes because he is the saint we pray to for intercession with God when nothing else has seemed to work. Because his name is often confused with Judas Iscariat, the betrayer of Jesus, attention to Jude has been neglected throughout history. Here at last is a beautiful novena to this almost forgotten saint.
Each day of the novena offers guided imagery, reflections for meditation, and prayers on some aspect of spirituality gleaned from the little we know about Saint Jude's life as an apostle and probable relative of Jesus. Anyone who needs a friend to intercede with God for particularly difficult favors will cherish this devotional pamphlet.
Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus has been a pillar of the Catholic faith for centuries. Many have grown in their love for God through regular prayer to the Sacred Heart. First Friday and other Eucharistic devotions have brought whole parishes and communities together in prayer around the Sacred Heart.
Here is a new novena that can be used for prayer to Our Lord every First Friday--or any time at all. Each reflection expands upon some our most beloved traditional ways of approaching and imagining the love of God that emanates from his Sacred Heart. They invite users to look deeply into their own hearts and find the heart of Christ there. Those who shy away from traditional types of devotions will benefit by giving this novena a try. Anyone who is already devoted to the Sacred Heart will find in this pamphlet a fresh way to pray.
This famous Novena guides the Catholic day by day in obtaining an increase of the priceless seven Gifts of the Holy Ghost. In seven different ways these Gifts make the Christian soul responsive to the daily inspirations of the Holy Spirit, leading him to a profound respect for the things of God (Fear), to joy in God s service (Piety), to realization of the nothingness of this earth (Knowledge), to supernatural courage (Fortitude), to sure direction in spiritual decisions (Counsel), to penetration of the truths of the Catholic Faith (Understanding), and to a relish for the things of Heaven (Wisdom).
NOVENA TO THE HOLY GHOST makes it easy to approach the Holy Ghost to receive the abundant Gifts that He desires to lavish on souls.
