St. Jude Patron Saint of Lost Cases

The Apostle Saint Jude Thaddeus is The Miraculous Saint, the Catholic Patron Saint of lost causes and cases despaired. When all other avenues are closed, he is the one to call upon, and his help often comes at the last moment. Dressed in Biblical era clothing for he was one of the Disciples of Jesus. He is distinguished by the fact that he often wears and holds a golden metal pendant of the type carried by people seeking his aid. Additionally, in some images of Saint Jude, there is a small flame atop his head, signifying the Baptism by Fire, also known as the Baptism of the Holy Ghost, which was received by the Disciples of Jesus at Pentecost.
