Who was St. Jude?
One of the twelve disciples
St. Jude is the patron saint of hopeless causes and desperate situations. He was one of Jesus’s twelve disciples, though he is only quoted once in the Gospels (see above). While called Judas in the Gospel of John, he is known by Jude to avoid confusion with Judas Iscariot, who betrayed Jesus, as John points out in his Gospel.
St. Jude’s medallion
Tradition holds that while Jesus was still alive, King Abgar of Edessa (modern-day Turkey) was sick with an incurable disease. He wrote Jesus a letter, asking for a miracle. Jesus responded to King Abgar that he would send one of his disciples to heal him. Then, Jesus impressed his face onto a cloth for St. Jude to transport to King Abgar. Upon receiving the cloth, King Abgar was healed. Today, St. Jude is often depicted with the same “image of Edessa” on a medallion around his neck.
Martyrdom & modern popularity
St. Jude continued ministering in Persia and was martyred in Persia alongside St. Simon. The two Saints share the same feast day (October 28th) and are buried together in the crypt beneath St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City.
He was popularized in prayer for desperate causes in the late 18th century in western Europe. Nowadays, many know St. Jude as the namesake of children’s research hospitals across the United States.
