Saint Jude was one of the 12 apostles and became a very powerful intercessor so anxious was he to prove he wasn’t THAT Judas.
The flame represents his presence at Pentecost (which THAT Judas wasn’t present for).
The Medallion represents a legend in which Jesus imprinted His face into a cloth for Saint Jude to take to the King of Edessa (now in Turkey) who was suffering from a serious illness. Showing, yet again, that he was not THAT Judas.
He is the Patron of Desperate causes, desperate situations, lost causes and his feast day is on October 28.
