Jude Landry Store

Thursday, October 28, 2010


Of course a few days after I start bragging about how I'm gonna make this Halloween, All Saints Day, and All Souls Day special this year, I forget that it's St. Jude's feast day. You'd think I'd be used to the bitter taste of humility by now, but I'm not.

Thanks Kaitlin, for reminding me that today indeed celebrates my husband's patron saint. 

Join in prayer with me:
Most Holy Apostle, St. Jude Thaddeus, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor who delivered your beloved Master into the hands of his enemies has caused you to be forgotten by many. But the Church honors you, and I invoke you as the special advocate of those who are in trouble and almost without hope. Help me to realize that through our faith we triumph over lifes difficulties by the power of Jesus who gave his life for us. Come to my assistance that I may receive the consolation and succor of heaven in all my needs, trials, and sufferings, particularly (here make your request) and that I may praise God with you and all the saints forever.

St. Jude, apostle of the Word of God, pray for us.
St. Jude, follower of the Son of God, pray for us.
St. Jude, preacher of the love of God, pray for us.
St. Jude, intercessor before God, pray for us.
St. Jude, friend of all in need, pray for us.
St. Jude, pray for us, and all who invoke your aid.

I also want to wish my lovely parents a very special anniversary - 32 years, I think! We are all so privileged to witness your marriage and may God continue to bring you many more happy years!

I have a calendar on the side of the fridge with feast days on it. If it makes you feel any better-this is the first day in October I've even looked at it. I would have never known otherwise. :)
