Yesterday's timeless art is reawakened by today's technology with our St. Jude Commemorative Ornament. Nelson laser-cut wood ornaments utilize our unique printing technology to create a smooth, glossy finish with a "no paper, no peel" exterior. All laser-cut ornaments are 1/8" thick and come with a pre-tied satin ribbon* for hanging. Guaranteed to impress, our ornaments make excellent gifts with their winning combination of quality and beauty. Honor this Apostle, and order for yourself or as a perfect personal gift to a friend, relative, or religious who has a devotion to St. Jude. Our ornament displays a portrait of St. Jude with a flame above his head and an image of Christ pulled to his chest. The ornament reads: "St. Jude Thaddeus, Patron of Lost Causes and Desperate Situations, hear our prayer."
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!
