St. Bede the Venerable to Host Ancient Relic of St. Jude

St. Bede the Venerable in La Cañada Flintridge will host the ancient relic of St. Jude the Apostle, cousin of Jesus, on Thursday, June 27, from 2 to 10 p.m. in the church. Veneration will begin at 2 p.m., Mass will be offered at 7 p.m. and veneration will end at 10 p.m.
The relic, widely believed to perform miracles, is a piece of bone from St. Jude’s arm that was separated from his remains centuries ago.
The bone is inside a wooden reliquary carved in the shape of an upright arm that gives the gesture of imparting a blessing. This visit is part of the Tour of the Relics of St. Jude the Apostle, which has already made over 100 stops throughout the United States since it began last September, and marks the first time the relic has left Italy in 1,700 years.
One of the most venerated figures in Christianity, St. Jude is revered for his unwavering dedication and steadfast faith. St. Jude is known as the Apostle of the Impossible and is the patron saint of lost causes and desperate situations. Millions have experienced his intercession in times of adversity and need.
Many blessings have been reported by those who have venerated it, including healings and people returning to the Catholic Church.
Veneration is a time of honoring a saint’s legacy and seeking prayers before God. This healing event will draw many pilgrims and provide an opportunity to begin the process of Plenary Indulgence.
Admission is free and open to people of all faiths.
St. Bede the Venerable is located at 215 Foothill Blvd., La Cañada Flintridge. Additional information can be found at the church’s website, bede.org or by calling (818) 949-4300.
