Sterling Silver medals depict the image of St. Jude.
St. Jude is one of the "Big Five" Catholic saints to whom a lot of devotion is given. St. Jude is often called the patron saint of difficult or impossible causes because of his name. Our San Judas medals help to explain why St. Jude is considered the patron saint of difficult or impossible causes. St. Jude is known in some languages as San Judas. Note the name is similar to Judas, who betrayed Jesus. Because of the ease of confusion with the two names, it was felt that devotion to St Jude would be difficult or impossible to take hold. So, when you see a reference to San Judas or San Judas Tadeo, the writer or speaker is referring to St. Jude.
