I ask that this doesnt turn into some kind of religous debate or derailed thread as it concerns a matter close to my heart right now. Thank you in advance for your kindness and patience.
Recently I have been having a lot of what I consider to be major life issues. My patron saint (the one that I chose at my confirmation) is saint Jude (the patron saint of the hopeless causes). I chose him because he was my late grandfather's favorite saint (he passed before I was born, but he was a very important man in my family). I was going through some of his things, and I found old holy cards and novenas to St. Jude and I thought about doing one of the novenas. Some of them say things like "It has never been known to fail" and things like that. I have never completed one before and wanted to ask a few questions.
Has anyone ever done one? Do you feel like it helped?
I cannot say what my issue is right now, but just know that I feel like it is not a very common one, and I dont feel like any answer I can come up with is a good one besides sit and wait.
