This chaplet begins with a full-color medal of St. Jude, followed by 40 - 6mm faceted emerald green aventurine beads in the loop. The color green is the most traditional color used for St. Jude's chaplets becuase he almost always depicted wearing a green robe. The beads are strung onto heavyweight professional beading wire for maximum strength and durability to last a lifetime of wear & prayer. I used lead-free Tibetan silver bicone beads and caps, plus galvanized silver seed bead spacers. I'll include a copy of how to pray the 40-bead St. Jude chaplet, a prayer card and a keepsake organza drawstring pouch with purchase of this chaplet. This would make a very thoughtful gift of faith for someone facing difficult times, or for the Holy Season, or any time of the year.

A Brief History:
Son of Cleophas, who died a martyr, and Mary who stood at the foot of the Cross, and who annointed Christ’s body after death. Brother of Saint James the Lesser. Nephew of Mary and Joseph; blood relative of Jesus Christ, and reported to look a lot like him. May have been a fisherman. Apostle.

Wrote the canonical Epistle named for him. Preached in Syria, Mesopotamia, and Persia with Saint Simon. Healer. Exorcist. Could exorcise pagan idols, which caused the demons to flee and the statues to crumble.

His patronage of lost or impossible causes traditionally derives from confusion by many early Christians between Jude and the traitor Judas Iscariot; not understanding the difference between the names, they never prayed for Jude’s help, and devotion to him became something of a lost cause.
