When Jesus Christ first developed his holy ministry, he selected a special group of 12 men to join him as he began to preach the word of God in and around Galilee. One of the men that he chose was St. Jude the Apostle. Not much is known about St. Jude before he became an apostle of Jesus. However, similar to the other apostles of Jesus, he was filled with the Holy Spirit after and went to spread Jesus’ message to people all over the world. He would ultimately become a martyr for his faith and was killed in Armenia.
Today, St. Jude is the patron saint for many causes which is why so many Catholics around the world make a prayer request to St. Jude for a miracle.
