O God, Who through Thy blessed Apostle Jude has brought us unto the knowledge of Thy Name, grant us both to celebrate his eternal glory by making progress in virtues, and by celebrating his glory, to advance in virtue, through Our Lord Jesus Christ, Who with Thee and the Holy Spirit are one God, now and forever. Amen.
