St. Jude (St. Peter Catholic Church)

Saint Jude, one of the Twelve Apostles is known as the patron of "Desperate Cases" or "Patron Saint of Lost Causes".) Pictures here is a statue of St. Jude that I found while visiting the St. Peter Catholic Church in St. Peter Ohio.

Statue of St. Jude

The statue holds an image of Jesus in one hand and a club (a symbol of his martyrdom) in the other. The Holy Spirit symbolized by a tongue of fire resting over his head represents his presence at Pentecost, when he received the Holy Spirit with the other apostles.
