Who Was St. Jude Known For?

Tradition asserts that Jude the Apostle preached in Mesopotamia, Syria, Samaria and Persia. According to Eusebius, he returned to Jerusalem in the year 62 AD and assisted in the election of James as bishop of Jerusalem.
He then left to spread the Word of Christ to Persia and suffered martyrdom in Armenia which was part of the Persian empire. In time, St. Jude came to be regarded as the special patron of “hopeless cases”, possibly because it was felt that devotion to him had been neglected for some time, most likely because of his name being the same as the traitor Judas (Iscariot). A little office of St. Jude appeared and in abbreviated form, the main prayer reads:

“Most Holy apostle, most faithful friend and servant of Jesus Christ, Jude Thaddeus, who is invoked as the special advocate of those who are in trouble and almost without hope, pray for me that by your merits, I may receive consolation in my tribulations and difficulties … and finally, with you and all the elect, I may love and bless God eternally. Amen.”

St. Jude Prayer

“St. Jude, glorious Apostle,
faithful servant and friend of Jesus,
the name of the traitor has caused
you to be forgotten by many,
but the true Church

invokes you universally
as Patron of things despaired of;
pray for me, who am so miserable;
pray for me, that finally I may
receive the consolations and the
succor of Heaven in all my
necessities, tribulations and
sufferings, particularly …


(make your request here),

and that I may bless God
with the Elect throughout
Eternity.
Amen.”
