Catholic Saints have been part of Catholic culture for hundreds of years. The Catholic Church is made up of many different sects and their teachings are often taken from the different denominations.
There are four main sects of Christianity: Catholic, Protestant, Reformed and non-denominational. Each of these has their own unique beliefs and traditions. Some of the most famous Catholic saints are St. Jude, St. Bernadette, St. Mary Magdalene and St. Peter.
The first of the Catholic Saints is St. Jude the Baptist. He was born in the third century of the Common Era and is said to be the son of a shepherd. He received his title from a prophecy that he would baptize the children of Israel. He is credited with being the pastor of his followers in Jerusalem.
St. Jude’s work is said to have started in Jerusalem when he and his family were turned away from the temple due to their lack of religion. He was later martyred in the Temple Mount after refusing to be a prisoner of Herod’s regime. He was buried in Jerusalem. Today the church is located at Mt. Zion.
Another famous Catholic Saint is St. Barbara, a woman who is credited with healing many people. She lived during the sixth century in the village of Tarsus, Turkey. She was also the wife of St. Stephen. She was born and raised in the pagan culture but converted to Christianity while her husband was still alive.
St. Jude’s feast day is on the fourth Sunday of Lent. Many people celebrate his life by dedicating a special Mass to the Virgin Mary. Other people even consider him a patron saint of the arts and literature.
Another Saint of the same name, also known as Martin, died while martyring himself in Rome. He is credited with being the first martyr in the history of the Christian faith. He was a monk from the Dominican Order. The story of his life is a mixture of truth and fiction.
