Note: St Jude center piece: "Saint Jude, also known as Saint Jude Thaddeus, is known and loved throughout the world as the Patron Saint of Hopeless Causes. He was one of the twelve Apostles and a cousin of Jesus Christ. He courageously preached the Gospel, often in the most difficult circumstances.

Saint Jude is often shown carrying an image of Jesus. Tradition tells us that this recalls a miracle when a king, afflicted with leprosy, was cured of this horrible disease after Saint Jude gave him a cloth that had been pressed to the face of Christ.

Over the ages many people in desperate need have turned to Saint Jude in prayer. Saint Bridget of Sweden said she was directed in a vision to pray with deep faith and confidence to Saint Jude. She stated that Christ told her, “In accordance with his surname, Thaddeus, the amiable or loving, Saint Jude will show himself most willing to help.”

In the Americas, it was the Dominican Friars who helped spread devotion to Saint Jude, particularly in the United States. In 1903, Father Thomas Lorente, O.P., and members of the Spanish Dominican Province came to New Orleans and were asked to take care of the oldest church building in New Orleans, the Mortuary Chapel, now called Our Lady of Guadalupe Church. By 1935, Our Lady of Guadalupe Chapel began a public novena to Saint Jude.

Today, Saint Jude continues to be one of the most popular and beloved Saints, a trusted heavenly intercessor for all those seeking God’s assistance during times of family crisis, sickness, and trouble, especially when all hope seems lost. (

Note: Medjugorje Crucifix: Mary stands on a wooden base with a three times repeated inscription “Mir, Mir, Mir” , which in the Croatian language means “Peace, Peace, Peace”. These words have now over the years become an icon of the apparitions of Our Lady of Medjugorje. The same words appeared up in the sky on August 6, 1981, this was noticed by lots of people.

 “Medjugorje” literally means “between mountains” because the town is situated between two hills: Križevac and Podbrdo (which will likely be called “Apparition Hill”). The parish of Medjugorje was founded in 1892 under the protection of St. James, the protector of pilgrims.
