Infant of Prague Novena

Are you in need of a fresh start, freedom from old burdens, a new outlook on life? Join the Infant of Prague novena of the Rosary Shrine of Saint Jude and bring your struggles and hopes before the child King! After a destructive invasion of Prague in the 17th Century, the infant Jesus spoke to Father Cyril, a young priest who discovered His battered statue in the ruins of Our Lady of Victory Church. He promised, “The more you honor me, the more I will bless you.” What is remarkable about this devotion is that in it we go to Jesus in His infancy, in His littleness. It is a way for all of us to acknowledge that Christ came into the world as the smallest of human beings yet glorious in majesty. In His littleness we can come to see our own littleness before His great majesty, a great majesty that He wishes to bless us with! Fill out the form below to add your intentions to our upcoming Infant of Prague Novena of Masses at the Rosary Shrine of Saint Jude. ✠

A Novena for Our Lady of Lourdes

Dear Friend of Our Lady and St. Jude, What kind of healing do you need most? What illness, difficulties or concerns would you like to entrust to Our Lady of Lourdes this February? Whatever it is, Mary is your Heavenly Mother, and she wants you to come to her. She wants you to trust her. She wants you to let her, by the grace of Christ, give you what you need most, whether it’s a miraculous cure from cancer, infertility or high blood pressure, the healing of a loved one from an addiction . . . or a miraculous healing within your soul. In Our Blessed Mother’s loving embrace there is peace, comfort, strength and joy for all who come to her. Please enter the names of all those in need of healing you’d like the Friars to pray for in the form below; be sure to include your own ailments and difficulties so the Friars can include your intentions in the Special Novena for Healing that we’ll be praying at the Rosary Shrine from February 3rd through February 11th. May Our Blessed Lady of Lourdes assist you and all your loved ones with healings of mind and body, and all your hearts with hope in God’s compassionate, unconditional love. Thank you for your generosity and prayers. You and your loved ones will be remembered in the prayers of all the Friars at the Rosary Shrine of St. Jude, especially during the Novena honoring Our Lady of Lourdes. Sincerely in Our Lady of Lourdes,     Fr. Gabriel Gillen, O.P. Director, Rosary Shrine of St. Jude ✠

Lenten Remembrance

Dear Friend of Our Lady and St. Jude, On Ash Wednesday, February 14th, our Lenten journey begins once again. We often ask ourselves during this time: What will I give up for Lent? This usually involves refraining from treats like chocolate, desserts or other things we really enjoy. Perhaps, the question you and I should be asking is: What am I doing for Lent? The greater sacrifice in this case involves concrete actions we make to be a better person and a more faithful Christian. Lent is an especially good time for acts of personal prayer, reflection, and repentance. Beginning on Ash Wednesday and during the next 40 days, the Dominican Friars at the Rosary Shrine of St. Jude will also offer a special series of Lenten Masses for you and your loved ones. If you fill out the special prayer intentions form below, I’ll make sure your personal needs and petitions will be included in these daily Lenten Masses. As we begin our Lenten journey together, please be assured you are in my prayers and the prayers of all the Dominican Friars. It is our great hope that this Lent will lead you ever closer to Our Lord and His loving salvation. In Christ,     Fr. Gabriel Gillen, O.P. Director, Rosary Shrine of St. Jude ✠

Easter Novena

Dear Friend of Our Lady and St. Jude, You and I have been so richly blessed with faith. We’ve felt God’s love, His tender compassion, His mercy. Our lives have been greatly enriched. But so many others don’t feel as we do. Where we see God’s light, they see only darkness. Where we experience God’s truth, they feel lost and uncertain. Through our devotion to Our Blessed Mother and St. Jude, we know that the seemingly impossible can become possible. Others find it difficult to see what lies right in front of them. Miracles can and do happen. After all, isn’t Easter the greatest of all miracles, Christ’s triumph and victory over death! I invite you to send me your special intentions and prayer requests on the prayer request form below. The Dominican Friars at the Rosary Shrine of St. Jude will then pray for all these petitions during our special Easter Novena of Masses from April 2nd through April 10th. This Easter, the Dominican Friars have more young men preparing to serve Christ and the Church than we’ve had in over 50 years. Our formation house is bursting at the seams with faithful, intelligent and virtuous young men, seeking to give their lives to the service of God’s people. Your continued support will help provide the educational, spiritual and theological formation that they need. Your offering of $20, $15, $25, $50 or your most generous gift, will empower our young Friars to go forth and lead people to faith, hope and love through preaching and devotion to Our Lady and St. Jude. May God greatly bless you and your loved ones this Easter and always. Be assured that you are in my prayers and in the prayers of all of the Dominican Friars at the Rosary Shrine of St.…

Father’s Day Novena

Love is patient and kind; love is not jealous or boastful; it is not arrogant or rude. Love does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrong, but rejoices in the right. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. — 1 Corinthians 13:4 In Saint Paul’s moving Letter to the Corinthians, he shows us how to love each other rightly. When a father loves his children in this tender way, he grows in the virtue of charity and fulfills the noble vocation of fatherhood. At the Rosary Shrine of Saint Jude, we’re celebrating a special Father’s Day Novena of Masses at the Shrine starting on June 9th. You can send us your prayer intentions by clicking this link.
