SAINT JUDE THADDEUS - PATRON OF DESPERATE CASES

Today The 28th of October, is the Feast of Saint Jude Thaddeus -- Help of the Hopeless.

By reason, of the fearful treason of Judas Iscariot against Our Saviour, the name of Jude fell in such disrepute that even the Holy Apostle Jude Thaddeus suffered thereby.

It seems Our Lord Jesus Christ, wishes to repair the honour of the Apostle by giving aid to those in extreme distress if they invoke his aid. Jude Thaddeus was a near relative of Jesus Christ and Mother Mary.

This glorious Apostle, was most zealous in spreading the Gospel in countries such as Ancient Mesopotamia, Ancient Persia, and Ancient Armenia.

He converted a multitude of souls and finished his career by a heroic death.

Our Lord Jesus Christ himself, directed Saint Bridget to turn with great confidence to Saint Jude, "In accordance with his surname -- Thaddeus which means amiable, loving said Jesus Christ, "He will show himself most willing to give help".

It is related that this Apostle, once appeared to a devout client and expressed his regret that so few Christians think of invoking his aid and protection.
