About St. Jude
St. Jude was one of the twelve apostles of Jesus Christ chosen to spread the gospels of Christianity. He had spread the gospels in Syria, Mesopotamia, Beirut, Persia and Lybia before he became a martyr in Armenia which was then under the rule of Persia. It is also believed that he had suggested to Jesus Christ to manifest on the people of earth after assuming resurrection at the Last Supper. He invoked the principles that faith should persevere even in times of difficulty, harshness and suffering. It is believed that he could have possibly become a martyr along with St. Simon near Persia.
