Why Saint Jude Is Considered The Last Resort
Saint Jude's feast is commemorated every 28 October, together with Saint Simon, the Zealot. Jude and Simon are two of Jesus' twelve apostles mentioned in the gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke. In Luke, Jude is described as the son of James, while in the Letter of Jude, he is described as the brother of James.
The name Jude is of Hebrew origin which means the praised one. The name Thaddeus means a courageous heart. Saint Jude Thaddeus's image is traditionally depicted with a Pentecost flame on his crown and an image of Christ on his chest.
