Dear Friend of St. Jude,

Last year, at the same date, I did not know you yet.  I only knew that a few months later I would replace Fr Henri de Longchamp at Saint Jude’s Apostolic Works.  I think that now, I can truly write « dear friends of Saint Jude».

First, I have to tell you, with great joy that I, also, have developed a friendship with Saint Jude.  On day, I will you all in details but it was trough you all that I have discovered it.

Today, I am a point where your devotion and your trust toward the saint of hope does not surprise me!  All the letters that you send us tell me of your wisdom of life, the love shown to your loved ones and how God is for you a benevolent Father who answers His children’s prayers.

Every Thursday, I see the faithfulness of the community of the Saint Jude prayer team.  When I happen to miss some of these meetings, I feel more strongly how I have gotten attached.  All are welcome.  If it is not yet part of your routine and if you do not live too far, save your Thursday afternoons (from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM) to enjoy the joy of shared hope.  Even during the summer!  Maybe more than any other season, isn’t summer favourable to tell our heart that our prayer was answered.

All the Saint Jude’s Apostolic Works Team joins me to wish you a wonderful summer!

Br Raymond Latour, O.P., Director
