NOVENA TO ST. JUDE
 
O Holy St. Jude, Apostle and Martyr, great in virtue and rich in miracles, near kinsman of Jesus Christ, faithful intercessor of all who invoke your special patronage in time of need, to you I have recourse from the depth of my heart and humbly beg to whom God has given such great power to come to my assistance. Help me in my present and urgent petition. In return, I will make your name known and cause you to be invoked. Say three Our Fathers, three Hail Mary's and Glories. Publication must be promised. St. Jude, pray for us and all who invoke your aid. Amen. This Novena has never been known to fail. This Novena must be said for 9 consecutive days..

LOL thats soo funny...because i thought i fixed the staff that looked too much like a penis, now it looks like a longer penis...i really got into his black eye because i was watching the wrestler with mickey rourke and painting.
I think St Jude has a sence of humor (i hope).
