 Our Description

Mitch Finley

We live in a skeptical world.  All too often, beliefs and opinions unverified by science are relegated to the world of superstition.  But should we dismiss the experience of heart and soul as mere illusion?
In Saint Anthony and Saint Jude, Mitch Finley challenges us to understand the role of heavenly intercessors from the perspective of faith and love.  Saint Anthony of Padua and Saint Jude are two saints who have come to enjoy wide popularity among the faithful as mediators of God's heavenly help.
While these saints are often invoked for their assistance, many who do so are strangers to the full story of these saints' role as part of the communion of saints.  Saint Anthony and Saint Jude introduces these two and presents the significant details of their lives.  From stories collected by the author through personal interviews and newspaper advertisements, we learn more of Saint Anthony, the patron of lost objects - from missing rings to missing people, from lost glasses to lost loves.  Saint Jude, the patron of lost causes, is revealed through the accounts of his assistance that range from averted bankruptcy, to miraculous rescues, to the completion of a normal pregnancy against all odds.
Join in witnessing these true stories of saintly intercession and everyday devotion.  The book ends with a group of familiar prayers and novenas to these two stalwarts of Catholic faith.

Mitch Finley is a prolific and popular author of many books and articles, including The Seven Gifts of the Holy Spirit, The Catholic Virtues, and The Ten Commandments.  He received a master of theology degree from Marquette University and has worked as a syndicated columnist, freelance writer, editor, and speaker for more than 15 years.

Profile

    Anthony’s wealthy family wanted him to be a great nobleman, but for the sake of Christ he became a poor Franciscan. Priest.

    When the remains of Saint Berard and his companions, the first Franciscan martyrs, were brought to be buried in his church, Anthony was moved to leave his order, enter the Friars Minor, and go to Morocco to evangelize. Shipwrecked at Sicily, he joined some other brothers who were going to the church in Portiuncula. Lived in a cave at San Paolo leaving only to attend Mass and sweep the nearby monastery. One day when a scheduled speaker failed to appear, the brothers pressed him into speaking. He impressed them so that he was thereafter constantly travelling, evangelizing, preaching, and teaching theology through Italy and France.

    A gifted speaker, he attracted crowds everywhere he went, speaking in multiple tongues; legend says that even the fish loved to listen. Miracle worker. One of the most beloved of saints, his images and statues are found everywhere – though none of them portray him as a heavy-set man, which some reports claim he was. Proclaimed a Doctor of the Church on 16 January 1946.

    One source of the well-known patronage for the recovery of lost objects comes from a legend that, long after Anthony’s death, his old prayer book was kept as a treasured relic, and one day it disappeared. People prayed for help in finding the lost item, a novice found it and returned it; he later admitted that he had “borrowed” the book and returned it after receiving a vision of an angry Anthony.

St. Jude

St. Jude Feast Day:
Eastern Calendar - 06/19
Roman Rite Calendar - 10/28
Tridentine Calendar - 10/28


Patron Of: Desperation, Hopeless Cases, Impossible Situations

Profile
    Son of Cleophas, who died a martyr, and Mary who stood at the foot of the Cross, and who anointed Christ's body after death. Brother of Saint James the Lesser. Nephew of Mary and Joseph; blood relative of Jesus Christ, and reported to look a lot like him. May have been a fisherman. Apostle.

    Writer of canonical letter. Preached in Syria, Mesopotamia, and Persia with Saint Simon. Healer. Exorcist. Could exorcise pagan idols, which caused the demons to flee and the statues to crumble.

    His patronage of lost or impossible causes traditionally derives from confusion by many early Christians between Jude and Judas; not understanding the difference between the names, they never prayed for Jude's help, and devotion to him became something of a lost cause.

Died
    beaten to death with a club, then beheaded post-mortem in 1st century Persia; relics at Saint Peter's, Rome, at Rheims, and at Toulouse, France

Name Meaning
    sweetness or gentleness of character (Thaddeus)
