St. Jude, Intercessor in Difficult Cases

Feast of St. Jude

St. Jude ThaddeusMany devotees of St. Jude write to the National Shrine recounting how St. Jude has come through for them, their family and loved ones. Their confidence in the power of St. Jude to intercede for them ennoble their trust in what God is able to do in their lives. One Devotee wrote to the Shrine thanking God and St. Jude for a miracle in the life of their son who was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease in his teens. Throughout his teenage life, his family’s life was defined by his illness. They made many trips to the hospital and specialists seeking to provide him the best medicine available, and to restore him to full health.
