Item Description...
This prize-winning book tells the story of American women`s devotion to St. Jude, the patron saint of hopeless causes, one of the most popular saint in the American Catholic panthenon. Robert Orsi examines St. Jude`s rise from obscurity to national popularity, beginning in Chicago in 1929, and he shows how the daughters and granddaughters of Catholic immigrants called on the saint to help them make lives for themselves in the tumultuous years of depression, war and changing workplaces and family lives.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Interesting stories behind a devotion  Nov 20, 2001
Orsi's book focuses on the human side of religion. In his book he gives a very interesting back stage view on what at a first glace seems to be a common and shared devotion - but in reality is a patchwork of ideas and practices of a very diverse group of people with very diverse histories, beliefs, desires and coping mechanisms. Orsi is a great storyteller. He tells not only the story of St. Jude (and his genesis in the depression years), but mostly of the people who venerate jude, and the unique stories behind their veneration. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is genuinely interested in people and religion and in the question of what people do with religion and what religion does with people!
Detailed history of St.Jude's popularity beginning in theUSA  Oct 22, 1998
This book offers the reader a detailed acccount of St.Jude's history and popularity in America. The author interviewed countless women in Chicago to learn of their common themes that brought them to honor St.Jude. As a devout friend of St.Jude I found this book to be fascinating.
