Meet St. Jude!
St. Jude (October 28th) – Patron of: lost causes, desperate situations, hospitals
St. Jude was one of the twelve apostles of Jesus, and is well known as the patron saint of lost causes. Some speculate that this is because he was often confused with Judas (the apostle that betrayed Christ) and so few people prayed for his intercession! After Jesus’ ascension St. Jude traveled all around preaching and teaching. He is depicted with the Mandylion (Image of Edessa) around his neck – a miraculous image of Jesus given to him by Christ to take to a sick King after Jesus had gone to heaven. The story can be found on the educational insert that comes with the doll!
Teach your children about never giving up hope! Introduce the story of St. Jude using the educational insert in the box. Encourage children to consider what it means to keep our hope in Christ and to believe in miracles. There is no such thing as a lost cause for God! St. Jude is a great way to introduce children to the ideas of hope, perseverance in prayer, and intercessory prayer. His story is also a great way to show children that Jesus’ work on earth is continued through his followers (the Church)!
