Saint Jude is a busy saint. Along with Saint Anthony of Padua and the Blessed Virgin Mary, he hears a lot of novenas. It's not surprising, of course, that Catholics turn to him; after all, he is known as the patron saint of lost causes, a worker of miracles, and the help of the hopeless.
This short novena to Saint Jude and the Sacred Heart of Jesus is traditionally prayed nine times per day (all at once or spread throughout the day) for nine days. It is then published—an act which can be as simple as sending it to your friends by e-mail or posting it in an online forum, placing an ad in the classified section of a newspaper, or printing up copies to leave at your parish church.
