Sandblasting gold printing with Saint Judas Thaddeus

An amazing gold print with Saint Judas Thaddeus.

The Apostle Judas Thaddeus was a highly educated Jew from Edessa. When he went up to Jerusalem on pilgrimage, he heard the sermon of John the Baptist, and seeing his angelic life, he was so impressed that he sought and was baptized by him.

But then, when he heard the teaching and saw the miracles of our Lord Jesus Christ, he became His disciple and followed Him until the saving Passion. After the Ascension of the Lord, he returned to his homeland. There he cleansed the toparch Avgaros of leprosy and then baptized him as a Christian. He taught the gospel by illuminating with the word of truth and baptizing many. He founded many churches in the cities of Syria. In Beirut he peacefully surrendered his spirit.

His memory is celebrated on August 21.
