About St. Simon and St. Jude
Feast Day: October 28
St. Simon is the “other Simon”, also known as Simon the Zealot or Simeon. Not much is known about him. It is thought that he and St. Jude traveled to Persia to preach the gospel there.
St. Jude is called the saint of lost causes. He gained this patronage because his name was similar to Judas Iscariot, the betrayer of Jesus, so few people asked for his intercession. He is called Jude in the Gospel of Luke. In the Gospels of Matthew and Mark he is called Thaddeus. He is the author of the Epistle of Jude.
Both of these saints were eventually martyred.
The feast day of Sts. Simon and Jude is October 28.
Feeling overwhelmed at school? This prayer for students invokes the intercession of the saint of impossible causes. Nothing in our lives is too big for God to handle.
This Dominican shrine in Chicago has a relic of St. Jude from his arm. This is the largest relic of any Apostle outside of Rome. Their site has lots of information about this saint.
Read more about these two saints. Little is known about Simon. We have much more information about Jude.
