St. Jude Retablo

St. Jude Retablo 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.

"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."

Handpainted with a prayer and/or information about the saint on the back.

Retablos are devotional images of Christian saints painted by santeros, or "saint makers." Retablos in New Mexico were created and popularized in the 1800s, and traditional practices are still used by artisans there today. The artist of this retablo, Lynn Garlick, has been creating retablos in New Mexico since 1993.
