St Jude prayer for miracle in difficult hopeless situations and cases. St Jude, also known as Thaddeus, was one of the twelve Apostles. That is why he is often called Jude Thaddeus. On the Catholic Church, 28 October celebrates the feast of Saint Jude.
In the Bible Mark (3:18) and Matthew (10:3) refer to him as Thaddeus, distinguishing him from Judas Iscariot, Jesus’ betrayer. John 14:22 calls him “Judas… not the Iscariot” in the last supper.
St Jude preached the Gospel, traveling and building the foundations of the early Church in Mesopotamia, Persia, and Libya. His activity converted many people to Christianity. The best-known episode is when St Jude cured King Abagar of Edessa by giving him a cloth with the image of Jesus’ face on it. St Jude died a martyr’s death in Persia.
St Jude is one of the most known saints we ask for intercession in difficult and hopeless situations. In the Catholic Church, he patronizes Hope and impossible causes.
