St. Jude Retablo Invoked in Desperate and Hopeless Causes.
Invoked in Desperate and Hopeless Causes.
San Judas is one of the Apostles, who is said in Luke 6:16 to be the brother of James; and in Mark 6:3, to be the brother of Jesus. It is believed he traveled to Persia with St. Simon where they were beaten to death. Little is known about this Apostle. He was ignored by the early church because his name is that of the other Judas who betrayed Christ. That is why San Judas is invoked in times of need.
Prayer to St. Jude:
"St. Jude, worker of miracles,
Please pray for me. St. Jude, helper of the hopeless,
Please pray for me, St. Jude, my gratitude will be always yours."

Retablos are a devotional folk art form from Mexico and the Southwest US. They are small paintings on wood of Catholic saints and angels. To create these affordable heart-felt paintings of saints, angels and blessings, the artist has brought to the folk art of Retablo making, all the skills and passions through a lifetime of drawing, woodworking and painting. Moved by the sacred art of the retablo paintings and the santeros (saint makers) who made them, pieces are hand carved and painted on traditional ponderosa pine planks. Then a decoupage of the high quality prints are applied onto pine boards, in an old school technique used for the Italian altar screens of medieval Europe. This process has made these high quality printed retablos affordable. These unique items are ready to hang or rest about the house, in a pocket or on an altar. On the back of the retablos is a story of the saint's life. Many of them also have a prayer.
