Sts. Jude and Francis Xavier Community


St. JUDE (or Judas) is a Christian saint.  He should not be confused with Judas Iscariot, another apostle and later the betrayer of Jesus.

The American Apostolic Church honours Saint Jude, along with Saint Bartholomew as their patron saint.  In the Roman Catholic Church he is the patron saint of desperate cases and lost causes.

Saint Jude’s attribute is a club.  He is also often shown in icons with a flame around his head.  This represents his presence at Pentecost, when he received the Holy Spirit with the other apostles.  Occasionally he is represented holding an axe or halberd, as he was brought to death by one of these weapons.  In some instances he may be shown with a scroll or a book (the Epistle of Jude) or holding a carpenter’s rule.

The feast of our patron is being on 28th October.  St. Jude is a saint of hopeless or desperate cases.  People never knew about St. Jude.  Thus by naming he community by his name a family came forward and offered the statue of this saint.  Some sponsored booklets regarding the life history, novena  and hymns of St. Jude.

St. FRANCIS XAVIER was born in Spain at the Xavier castle on 8th April 1506.  He was affectionately called "JASSU".  After completion of preparatory studies in Spain, he joined th world renowned University of Paris.  The ambitious plans of his dreams to shine in the world over as one of the most intellectual luminaries were thwarted by the famous words of Jesus "what does it profit a man to gain the whole world if he looses his own soul?" repeatedly sounded into his ears by Ignatius de Loyola, one in all his room-mate, his friend, his disciple.

Once Francis Xavier was ordained as a priest along with Ignatius de Loyola and four others, they together formed a Society of Jesus.  They served Jesus in poverty and chastity.  They preached and nursed the sick in the city.  From Rome, through Lisbon, at the request of king of Portugal, D, Joao III, chosen to go to remote East.

Thought of the day
    20 Sept 2021 - Memorial of Saints Andrew Kim Tae-gon, Priest LECTIONARY: 449 FIRST READING: Ezr 1:1-6 In the first year of Cyrus king of Persia, that the word of the Lord by the mouth of Jeremiah might be fulfilled, the Lord stirred up the spirit of Cyrus king of Persia, so that he made a proclamation throughout all his kingdom and also put it in writing: “Thus says Cyrus king of Persia: The Lord, the God of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth, and he has charged me to build him a house at Jerusalem, which is in Judah. Whoever is among you of all his people, may his God be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem, which is in Judah, and rebuild the house of the Lord, the God of Israel—he is the God who is in Jerusalem. And let each survivor, in whatever place he sojourns, be assisted by the men of his place with silver and gold, with goods and with beasts, besides freewill offerings for the house of God that is in Jerusalem.” Then rose up the heads of the fathers' houses of Judah and Benjamin, and the priests and the Levites, everyone whose spirit God had stirred to go up to rebuild the house of the Lord that is in Jerusalem. And all who were about them aided them with vessels of silver, with gold, with goods, with beasts, and with costly wares, besides all that was freely offered. PSALM: 126:1b-2ab, 2cd-3, 4-5, 6 Response: The Lord has done marvels for us. When the LORD brought back the captives of Zion, we were like men dreaming. Then our mouth was filled with laughter, and our tongue with rejoicing. Then they said among the nations, “The LORD has done great things for them.” The LORD has done great things for us; we are glad indeed. Restore our fortunes, O LORD, like the torrents in the southern desert. Those that sow in tears shall reap rejoicing. Although they go forth weeping, carrying the seed to be sown, They shall come back rejoicing, carrying their sheaves. GOSPEL: Luke 8:16-18 “No one after lighting a lamp covers it with a jar or puts it under a bed, but puts it on a stand, so that those who enter may see the light. For nothing is hidden that will not be made manifest, nor is anything secret that will not be known and come to light. Take care then how you hear, for to the one who has, more will be given, and from the one who has not, even what he thinks that he has will be taken away.” Source: Archdiocese of Mumbai official website (
