This is a novena or niner prayer chaplet. Nine bead chaplets, or "niners", are similar to rosaries and are devoted to a particular saint with a special intention prayed on the Medal. Their small size makes them easy to slip into purse or pocket. The chaplet of Saint Jude has been one of my favorite devotions since young adulthood to present. Saint Jude was one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus. He is also variously called Jude brother of James, Jude Thaddaeus, and is sometimes identified with Jude, "brother of Jesus". Saint Jude is not the same person as Judas Iscariot who betrayed Jesus the Christ. He is often depicted wearing green, holding a golden medal in his hand, and a flame of fire on top of his head. He is called upon in the most desperate situations and when all seems lost.
The cross of Caravaca is a double-cross-barred crucifx on which the figure of Jesus is flanked by two winged angels who kneel in postures of prayer. The legend of the Caravaca Cross is one of the most interesting stories. In 1232, a miracle occurred in the town. Murcia belonged to a Taifa kingdom of the Moors and the town was ruled by a Moorish king, Sayid Abu-Sayid. He was interviewing one of his Christian prisoners, a priest called Gines Perez Chirinos, who was from Cuenca. The king asked him about his profession and the priest told him that he said Mass. The king was curious and told him he wanted to see the priest say Mass at the main chamber of the fort, in front of the court. He arranged that the priest have an altar draped with a cloth, bread and wine, and some candles. However the priest said he could not proceed because he did not have a cross. The priest explained that the presence of a cross was critical to the Eucharist and he could not continue without one. The king exclaimed: "So what is that?", pointing to something at the window. From the heavens, two angels appeared carrying a cross, which they placed on the altar and then disappeared. The king and his whole court were so amazed by the miracle that they all asked to be baptized. The Caravaca Cross is called a lignum crucis, because it contains a fragment of the True Cross on which Christ was crucified. In Mexico, the cross of Caravaca has been a popular religious amulet, to protect the wearer against all evil. The use of the cross of Caravaca for granting wishes dates back at least to the the early 19th century.
