The Reason Danny Thomas Chose the Name ‘St. Jude’ for His Hospital
This is the final day of our St Jude Radiothon. It's the most important time of the year for us as radio personalities. We are very passionate about helping the kids at St. Jude. We want to share with you the Catholic prayer to St Jude. It is beautiful and the reason founder Danny Thomas chose the name St Jude for his hospital.
The story is that at a time before Danny Thomas was successful, when things were dire for he and his family, he went to church and prayed for help from St. Jude, the Parton Saint of Desperate Situations. He promised, in his prayer, that whatever help he received, he would give back even more. He kept his promise. :-)
A Catholic prayer to St Jude is:
"O most holy apostle, Saint Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the Church honoureth and invoketh thee universally, as the patron of hopeless cases, and of things almost despaired of. Pray for me, who am so miserable. Make use, I implore thee, of that particular privilege accorded to thee, to bring visible and speedy help where help was almost despaired of. Come to mine assistance in this great need, that I may receive the consolation and succor of Heaven in all my necessities, tribulations, and sufferings, particularly (here make your request) and that I may praise God with thee and all the elect throughout eternity. I promise thee, O blessed Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favour, to always honour thee as my special and powerful patron, and to gratefully encourage devotion to thee. Amen."
