Beloved in Christ, please permit us to introduce you to a faithful friend of ours, the Holy Apostle and Martyr, Saint Jude Thaddeus. He has proven always to be a very caring saint, obviously concerned about helping those of us still with flesh and blood. St Jude, the Saint of the impossible Deeds,did not get this title by mere chance, on the contrary, , for his powerful intercessory powers before the Throne of the Most Holy Trinity. St.Jude is also known as Lebai Sleeha
"The world looks to the priest, because it looks to Jesus! No one can see Christ; but everyone sees the priest, and through him they wish to catch a glimpse of the Lord! Immense is the grandeur of the Lord! Immense is the grandeur and dignity of the priest!" - Pope John Paul II
