On Saturday, February 24, 2024, I will be at St. Jude Catholic Church, 21689 Toledo Road, Boca Raton 33433, and on Monday, February 26, I will be at St. Peter Catholic Church, 1701 Indian Creek Parkway, Jupiter 33458, to visit with one of Jesus' Apostles. I invite you to join me in this extra-ordinary experience!
"I am excited to see this relic because this arm hugged Jesus!
That's exactly what I said to Ms. Kelly when I found out about this relic being on pilgrimage back in October 2023. I nominated our parish as a host, but unfortunately the "Treasures of the Church" Catholic evangelization ministry didn't choose us -- but I'm ok with driving to the parishes that were!
St. Jude Thaddeus, as one of the Twelve, was a member of the first Christian community and his experiences as part of that group at the Last Supper and after the Resurrection, the Ascension, and Pentecost are described in Sacred Scripture. When the Apostles are listed in Matthew 10:3 and Mark 3:18, the name "Jude" does not appear but "Thaddeus" does. He may have picked up this name to differentiate him from Judas Iscariot, who betrayed Jesus on the night before He died.
