All of us individually and Our Lady of Vilnius as a parish know what it means to be misunderstood, undervalued and pushed aside. We should develop this bond of empathy with Saint Jude, befriend him and seek his help.

I think that we should all pray to Saint Jude Thaddeus now for our parish. According to Catholic Forum:
"His patronage of lost or impossible causes traditionally derives from confusion by many early Christians between Jude and Judas; not understanding the difference between the names, they never prayed for Jude's help, and devotion to him became something of a lost cause."
