Thanks to Fr Brummell for this wonderful site!
Thank you for joining us in prayer this Advent season. We look forward to praying with and for you during these holy days. St. Jude is there for us in our Advent preparation for the birth of Christ. As Christmas approaches, lighting the Advent wreath reminds us that God’s love for us is strong.
The Claretians will be praying for you this Advent season. We invite you to send your special intentions for Advent to the National Shrine of St. Jude today. Our daily Meditations for the final week of Advent are below.
