St. Jude is the Patron Saint of Hope and impossible causes. He preached the Gospel with great passion, often in the most difficult circumstances. Through the power of the Holy Spirit, he made profound differences in people’s lives as he offered them the Word of God. We use herbs, oils, and resins associated with Saint Jude.
St. Jude is traditionally depicted carrying the image of Jesus in his hand. After his death, many turned to St. Jude for his intercession in prayer. Jesus inspired the devotion to St. Jude for St. Bridget of Sweden when he directed her with a vision to turn to St. Jude with great faith and confidence.
Today, millions of people around the world turn to St. Jude, the Patron of Hope, for his intercession and hope.
