patron saint of impossible causes

saint jude

St. Jude was one of the original Twelve Apostles of Jesus. The devotion to him as patron saint of desperate causes began in France and Germany in the late 18th century. Saint Jude is the patron saint of various groups and places, and is best known as the patron of "desperate" or "difficult" cases (a term used in preference to the older title of "hopeless" cases, since with God no situation is hopeless). Saint Jude is therefore the patron saint of HOPE.

Retreat to a Holy sanctuary with this intoxicating combination of blooming Damask Roses, fresh-cut Geranium flowers and velvety Oud.

Saint Jude enables the impossible. Light this candle when you need a spark of Hope.


Prayer to Saint Jude

Saint Jude, saint of impossible causes, I place myself in your care. Help me know that with you at my side I am never alone. Please join me in asking God to send me consolation in my sorrow, courage in my fear, and healing in the midst of my suffering. Ask God to fill me with the grace to accept whatever may lie ahead for me and to strengthen my faith in His healing power. Amen.
