Today on my birthday, I am thankful to God for the year that was. For my Love whom I love. For my parent, siblings and relatives. For my soon-to-be in-laws.

Thanks God for the wonderful morning and weather in this place I have love.

Thank you for the lunch together with Love at Volante after attending the 1215 mass at the Our Lady of the Atonement Cathedral which was also my thanksgiving offer to God.

Thank you too that I was able to be inside the SLU premises again and wait for my Love after her class.

Thank you for the ice cream we had.

Thank you for the Odesk opportunities as source of my online income.

I am posting this novena prayer to St. Jude as a reminder that once in my life, at this age of three years past thirty, I experienced a very difficult moment.

I hope and pray that my requests will be granted.

Prayer to St. Jude - Novena (from my Xperia MiniPro App)

"O most holy apostle, St. Jude, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, people honor and invoke you universally, as the patron of hopeless cases, of things almost despaired of. Pray for me, for I am so helpless and alone.   Please help to bring me visible and speedy assistance. Come to my assistance in this great need that I may receive the consolation and help of heaven in all my necessities, tribulations, and sufferings, particularly (state your request) and that I may praise God with you always."

"I promise, O blessed St. Jude, to be ever mindful of this great favor, to always honor you as my special and powerful patron, and to gratefully encourage devotion to you by publishing this request. Amen."
