Over the centuries, Saint Jude has been asked to intercede in hopeless causes and he is the patron saint to invoke when all else seems hopeless.
Saint Jude Thaddeus is thought to be one of the twelve apostles by many scholars. He is recognized in the Epistle of Jude as the brother of James and possibly a relative of Jesus. He traveled to Mesopotamia where he joined with Saint Simon in Persia. They were martyred together in Persia and their feast day is celebrated on October 28.
