St. Jude Thaddeus
St. Jude Thaddeus is often invoked as the Patron of Hopeless Causes. The Apostle Jude Thaddeus should not be confused with Judas, the betrayer of Jesus. Both men were named Judas but the Apostle Jude Thaddeus was with Jesus throughout His ministry, received the Holy Ghost at Pentecost, preached the Word of God in Edessa, Armenia, and Persia and then was martyred with St. Simon. In this lesson, we will study the life of St. Jude as presented in the Gospels, in the writings of the Church Fathers, and in the Catechism. We will also learn several prayers to him and have an engaging activity in honor of St. Jude.
