St Jude Thaddeus

When I was a young girl, my grandmother kept a statue of St. Jude on her dresser. Since few things adorned her room, St. Jude was prominent there. She had a special love for him, and lived out her devotion in such a way that her family learned it, too. It was many years ago, but I can still see her statue in my mind’s eye.

St. Jude has always been a special saint for my family, and for families around the world. But who exactly is this miraculous intercessor known as the “Patron Saint of the Impossible?”

Question for thought:

  1. When might you need to ask for St Jude's prayers?
