Because Saint Jude is usually depicted wearing green, his chaplets are traditionally made using green beads. In this version, we’ve chosen genuine rhyolite, a beautifully textured green gemstone. The gemstone beads are separated with bronze tone Bali style spacers. A bronze center and Saint Jude medal complete the limited edition chaplet which measures 12 inches.
Your Saint Jude 40 bead chaplet will be shipped in a silk-like pouch and gift box.

Saint Jude 40 Bead Chaplet
Saint Jude Thaddaeus
Saint Jude, known as Thaddaeus, was a brother of Saint James the Less, and a relative of Jesus. He was one of the 12 Apostles but not the same person as Judas Iscariot who betrayed Our Lord.
It is said that he preached the Gospel in Judea, Samaria, Idumaea, Syria, Mesopotamia, and Lybia and returned to Jerusalem in the year 62. There he assisted at the election of his brother, Saint Simeon, as Bishop of Jerusalem.
He is an author of an epistle (letter) to the Churches of the East, particularly the Jewish converts, directed against the heresies of the Simonians, Nicolaites, and Gnostics. Belief is that he suffered martyrdom in Armenia, which was then subject to Persia.
Jude was apostle who asked Jesus at the Last Supper why He would not manifest Himself to the whole world after His resurrection. Little else is known of his life. Legend claims that he visited Beirut and Edessa and was possibly martyred with Saint Simon in Persia.
Saint Jude is invoked in desperate situations because his New Testament letter stresses that the faithful should persevere in the environment of harsh, difficult circumstances, just as their forefathers had done before them. For this reason, he is the patron saint of desperate cases.
I can not count the number of times I have gone to Saint Jude asking for help.
My prayers have always been answered. This chaplet is offered as a testament to, and in gratitude for prayers answered.

Praying the Saint Jude 40 Bead Chaplet
Begin with this prayer:
Saint Jude, glorious apostle, faithful servant and friend of Jesus, the name of the traitor has caused you to be forgotten by many but the true Church invokes you universally as the patron of things despaired of. Pray for me that, finally, I may receive the consolation and the succor of Heaven in all my necessities and sufferings, particularly — (here make your request) — and that I may bless God with you and all the elect throughout all eternity.
On each bead, recite a Hail Mary with the following invocation:
Saint Jude, Apostle, martyr and relative of Our Lord Jesus Christ, of Mary and of Joseph, intercede for us.
At the end of the chaplet, recite the following prayer:
O Holy St. Jude, Apostle and Martyr, great in virtue and rich in miracles, near kinsman of Jesus Christ, faithful intercessor of all who invoke your special patronage in time of need, to you I have recourse from the depth of my heart and humbly beg to whom God has given such great power to come to my assistance. Help me in my present and urgent petition. In return I promise to make your name known and cause you to be invoked. St. Jude pray for us all who invoke your aid. Amen
