When I was young, around 12 or so, I spent a lot of time with a
stepmother who was devoutly Catholic. She always made fun of me and
my odd ideas, and said St Jude would have been 'perfect' for me.
And then, a few years ago when I met my husband, I discovered a few
months after we'd met that his patron saint was St Jude. He'd gone
to Catholic school until he was highschool aged.
To make this post have some reference to the discussion... I
personally feel that simply because St Jude represents 'lost causes'
and the like, I don't think that means he carries them about as a
bad thing. Rather, these lost causes are no longer lost, these
unrealized dreams are realized, etc.
Just a couple coppers thrown in from my general direction. :)
