Does anyone know any orthodox prayers to St Jude (Saint of lost/desperate causes).
I have found Roman Catholic ones on the internet but no orthdox. Is it ok to use
the Catholic prayers?

Thanks.

â€Â  Irini nem ehmot,

I haven't found any orthodox prayers to St. Jude, but you bring up an interesting question.  I take the view that prayer is prayer, there is no such thing as "Orthodox", "Catholic" or "Protestant" when it comes to prayer.  Prayer, afterall, is a dialogue with God.

Please pray (in any way you wish  Wink) for me.

I agree with EA. The only thing I'd add is that you might want to be wary of some Protestant prayers which express some of their unorthodox Smiley understanding. the sama applies to Catholic prayers but much much less unless it deals with prayers to the immaculate conception, or prayers for people in purgatory.

This is lifted from the GOA website:
 "June 19
Apolytikion:

                        First Tone

                        We know thee as a kinsman of Christ and we laud thee with sacred hymns and songs as a most steadfast Martyr who trampled on error and who courageously kept the Faith. As we celebrate today thy holy remembrance, we receive forgiveness of our sins and transgressions, O Jude, through thy holy prayers.
Kontakion:

                        First Tone

                        Sprung from a noble root, thou art risen before us, a branch bestowed by God, ever feeding the whole world upon the fruits of thy words, O eyewitness of God the Lord, O thou brother of our God, and Christ's all-wise herald, who hast taught the Lord's pure Orthodox Faith to all men, initiate of His grace.
Reading:

The Apostle Jude was of the choir of the Twelve, and by Luke was called Jude, the brother of James the Brother of God (Luke 6:16; Acts 1:13), and therefore also a kinsman of the Lord according to His humanity. But by Matthew (10:3), he is called Lebbaeus, surnamed Thaddaeus (he is not the Thaddaeus who healed the suffering of Abgar, as Eusebius says in his Eccl. Hist., 1:13; see Aug. 21). Saint Jude preached in Mesopotamia, Arabia, Idumea, and Syria, and, it is said, completed the path of his divine apostleship by martyrdom in Beirut in the year 80. Written after the destruction of Jerusalem by Titus, his is the last of the Catholic (General) Epistles to the believing Jews in the Diaspora. His name (a variant of Judah) means 'Praise.'"

Brother Armando,   I thought you might want to take a look at this website  http://www.sspx.ca/Angelus/1986_July/Saint_Jude.htm

Although I am now Orthodox, I was brought up RC and have always had a fondness for St. Jude.  When I went off to college my father gave me a necklace with a St. Jude medal on it.  At first I was a bit offended that my father thought of me as a "hopeless case" but he assured me that I would want the intercessions of this great saint.  Although my father has been long deceased (may his memory be eternal) I will never forget his words.  He was a caring father to all his six children and a very devout catholic.  God bless you Armando.
