St Jude Thaddeus
Patron of Desperate Causes (1st Century)
Figurine comes nicely displayed in a clear fronted box with the the Story of the saint on the outside and a prayer card inside.
Millions have turned to St Jude for assistance when all else fails. As the Patron of Deperate Causes, it is St Jude who will intercede on your behalf when you cannot find an answer and all hope seems lost.
A close relative of Jesus, probably a cousin, and apostle to Jesus Christ. St Jude travelled throughout Mesopotamia and Syria, preaching the gospel with St Simon. It was during his travels the St Jude is said to have cured the King of Edessa from leprosy in the name of Jesus. Later artists used the symbol of an image of Jesus around St Jude’s neck to refer to this story.
Another image associated with St Jude is that of the flame above his head. Since Jude was an apostle, he was one of those gathered in the locked room with the other disciples when they received the Holy Spirit in the form of tongues of fire.
St Jude, along with St Simon, is said to have been martyred in Armenia. His relics are now honoured in St Peter’s Basilica in Rome. Evidence of this saint’s powerful intercession can be found daily in the ads of local papers and on the internet. Many people attribute the relief they have found to the assistance of the Patron of Desperate Causes.
