St Jude was one of the disciples of Jesus who was mistakenly known as Judas Iscariot who betrayed Jesus who was their master and God himself. But he is the saint of the hope to the hopeless and those who lost meaning in their lives. He is also a saint who comforts, consoles, counsels and leads the pupil to achieve impossible things. We too have put our trust and faith in Him who will protect each and every child from every harm and sickness and will guide them to have a meaningful life by their own effort.
St. Judes says, "keep yourselves in the love of God; look forward to the mercy of Lord Jesus Christ that leads to eternal life".
