Letters From Patrons of the Rosary Shrine of Saint Jude

Here are just a few of the many letters that we receive at The Rosary Shrine of Saint Jude thanking St. Jude for his miraculous intercession.

Although it was bitterly cold and snow filled the night air, along with the night nurse canceling, St. Jude was with mom and I as she spoke very softly, telling me she was dying. We prayed the Rosary together and I said very powerful prayers for her soul. Mom called out, “St. Jude, save me” several times and died clutching her St. Jude Rosary tightly in her hands. I felt sure that St. Jude went with her to meet Jesus.

Last year, I said the St. Jude Novena with 3 intention. . .and 3 prayers were answered. My niece was listed as high risk with her first pregnancy. On the CT scan, it was confirmed her unborn baby had a tumor growing on his adrenal gland. He would need surgery immediately after birth. He was born 5 weeks early, but CT scan imaging did not show any tumor! I then asked St. Jude to help my brother find a job. He’s been working in a grocery store and not earning enough money for his family.(He’s retired from the police force.) He found anew job in law enforcement and is now able to contribute to the support of his family. Lastly, I prayed to St. Jude to help my nephew. He started having seizures which resulted in a car accident.He and his family were unhurt but very shaken up. He has had several seizures since, however, he has found a physician that has been integral to controlling the seizures. He is now seizure free for the past 6 months! Thank you St. Jude for prayers answered!

[When I was 15], I was a baton twirler and the baton smacked my left flank when I tossed it in the air and it ruptured my left kidney when it slammed into my back as I missed catching it. I was in the hospital for two weeks while the doctors decided what to do. They planned to remove the kidney but decided to look at the kidney one more time. In the interim, a young nurse talked a lot to me about wonderful St. Jude, who was known as the patron of hopeless cases. I developed a devotion to him because I was so afraid to lose the kidney. This would change my life forever. I prayed fervently and often to him. I promised I would name my first son after him and tell everyone about him. When they did the surgery to look at the kidney, it began to function again. To shorten the story, we named our first son, Richard Jude. My devotion to him continues to this day.

I was so excited to receive your card with your beautiful note. It came on a day when my pain was so unbearable, it sometimes makes me lose my faith, but your note reminded me that St. Jude does love. I found St. Jude when I was15andnowIam74andIprayeveryday to my saint that I love so much.
