Hope is the last to die, and when life is difficult, many people entrust themselves ot the saint who listens best to their despair. St. Jude, the patron saint of lost causes, is curiously popular with cops and criminals.

St. Jude is one of the saints who elicits the greatest devotion among the faithful of the capital and the country. On October 28, the San Hipolito Church, where the saint is worshipped, attracts dozens of pilgrimages. They are made up of the faithful who came to ask for favors, and now come to give thanks with their rolls, flowers, songs and prayers. Many come in procession with music, rockets and joy to thank the saint for favors granted. Outside the temple, there is a constant hubbub among the stalls of candles, prayer cards, T-Shirts and statues of St. Jude in all sizes.

This scene is repeated, with less intensity, on the 28th of each month. If you’re in Mexico City, look around and you will see lots of people with an image or picture of your St. Jude under their arm. In the street, on public transport. In their everyday coming and goings, they will stop at San Hipólito to ask for a favor or to give thanks.

A crowd of the faithful gathers around the church. Behave respectfully, especially if you want to take pictures, and always be careful.
