Sometimes in life we feel that we need a miracle to help us. Our situation might feel desperate or hopeless. However, we also know somebody is always there to intercede for us and help. St. Jude is the patron saint of hopeless causes, and the most powerful saint to ask for a miracle. St. Jude was one of the twelve apostles, and his intercession can truly change a life.
If you’re looking specifically for financial help, we have a prayer to St. Jude for a financial miracle that can help you. Remember that there is nothing wrong with praying for financial help. St. Jude is not the only saint that can offer a powerful intercession in moments that seem impossible to deal with. We also have a powerful prayer to St. Rita, the patron saint of impossible causes, and a prayer to Philomena for a miracle.
Who is St. Jude and Why is He the Patron Saint of Hopeless Causes?
St. Jude, also known as Jude Thaddaeus, is the patron saint of hopeless causes.
St Jude is one of the most familiar of all the saints. He is often depicted as a man with icons of flame around his head. The emblem of the saint appears in a variety of guises, and some think he was the apostle Jude, an officer of the Roman garrison in Judea during the first century of the Christian era.
The history of the church of St. Jude is not as well documented as some of the other Roman Catholic saints. He appears in the New Testament, but the details of his life are not known. However, his importance extends far beyond his own life.
We can relate to St. Jude’s anguish: we are hurt, we are exhausted, and we are desperate. We are in bad shape, and we do not see a way out. The appeal is for prayers to St. Jude for anything–that is, anything desperate, hopeless, or impossible.
