Enjoy your coffee, tea, and hot cocoa in this unique ceramic Saint Jude Mug! This mug makes a great gift to a family member or friend who has a devotion to St. Jude or for yourself. In a vibrant image, St. Jude rests in a portrait with a flame above his head and an image of Christ pulled near his chest. On the other side is a prayer to this "Saint of the Impossible."
St. Jude Thaddeus was one of Christ's first Apostles, while also being Jesus' cousin. He authored the book of Jude, a letter to the early churches of the East, while also doing much traveling and sharing the Gospel. A flame is usually depicted above his head as a symbol of the flames that descended upon the Apostles at Pentecost; and he caresses an image of Jesus near his heart for a miracle he worked for a king who had leprosy - the king was cured with this image of Jesus, given to St. Jude by Jesus! For a long period of time, St. Jude was overlooked due to his name being close to Judas Iscariot's, the man who betrayed Christ. However, Jesus inspired devotion to St. Jude through St. Bridget of Sweden, proclaiming him "Patron Saint of the Impossible." St. Jude, pray for us and increase our hope!
This 11 oz. high quality coffee mug imprinted in our shop in Steubenville, OH, makes a great gift for any event or occasion!
