History of San Judas Tadeo
The scriptures say that after the Last Supper, at the moment in which Christ promised that he would manifest himself to those who listened to him, Judas asked why he did not manifest himself to everyone. Jesus replied that He and his Father would be with all those who loved him.
Among the ancient texts, the authorship of one of the canonical epistles is attributed to Saint Jude. This is not addressed to any person or church in particular, but it does have a powerful message of faith. He invites Christians to: «fight bravely for the faith that has been given to the saints. Because some in the secret of their hearts are impious men, who turn the grace of our Lord God into an occasion for quarrel and deny the only regulating sovereign, our Lord Jesus Christ».
From the beginning it is well known that Judas Tadeo is exposed as a fervent follower of Jesus, not in vain he is one of his apostles. His criticism against false teachers is usually very strong, since his main objective is to call and convert men to the true faith. As he himself explains with this beautiful prayer that says: "Eternal glory be to Our Lord Jesus Christ, who is able to keep us free from sins, and without stain in the soul and with great joy."
In another sense, Judas Tadeo is a sometimes controversial character, because his name has sometimes been confused with other figures in history, for example, some often think that he is Judas Iscariot, who betrayed Jesus; or he is confused with Saint Thaddeus of the legend of Abgar, coming to consider that his death was calm and peaceful, ending his life in Beirut of Edessa.
According to Western tradition, the Roman liturgy indicates that San Judas Tadeo met San Simón in Mesopotamia, together they preached the word of God for several years in Persia, where they finally perished being martyred. In an ancient story, attributed to a character named Obadiah, who is believed to have been a disciple of Simon and Judas, being consecrated by them as the first bishop of Babylon, the death of both saints is discussed. It states that San Simón was martyred by sawing him in half, and San Judas Tadeo was decapitated, cutting off his head with an axe. This is the reason why the Western Church commemorates their celebration together.
The Eastern church, on the other hand, has a different perspective on Judas Thaddeus. It is estimated that he passed away in Beirut from Edessa in Lebanon, completely separating the festivals related to Simon and Judas Thaddeus.
As mentioned above, the festival of San Judas Tadeo el Apóstol was established in the western church on October 28, sharing the celebration with San Simón. However, for some time now, it has become frequent for devotees to venerate him on the 28th of each month, this is undoubtedly due to his considerable appreciation and popularity among believers.
