As a last hope, he turned to St. Jude Thaddeus, the patron saint of hopeless causes. “Show me my way in life,” he vowed to the saint one night in a Detroit church, “and I will build you a shrine.” By giving his word it seemed that St. Jude had heard and was willing to test it.
Long ago, there was a man that spoke of salvation, the salvation of every person, including people that had no hope. People whose condemnation was undoubtedly certain had a new chance to start a new life that could relieve them of their wrongdoings. This man gave these people hope, faith, confidence, and desire to peruse a life they never had thought could be possible. Salvation is every human’s choice big and small, if you do not believe or follow the way you shall be condemned to the everlasting fire. “Jude” is a very short but captivating book in the New Testament.

As one of the twelve disciples, John gives a unique perspective on whom Jesus was and what he came to accomplish through his life, death and resurrection. Ultimately, John’s Gospel is among the most unique of the four Gospel accounts, John is passionate about the church properly understanding just who Jesus is and he believes that Jesus shows the world his Father in Heaven. First off, about ninety percent of the entire book is unique to the other Gospel writers.
Sydney learned this verse as a child and it has stuck with him his whole life. “I am the resurrection and the life, saith the Lord: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live: and whosoever liveth and believeth in me, shall never die.” (Dickens).

Instead of selfishly wanting to experience all of the world that he can, the Reb is content to make an impact on the lives of those he encounters while he is still here. For example, Mitch may have just forgotten about his old rabbi and his faith if the Reb had not asked Mitch to do his eulogy. The Reb decided to invest in Mitch and trust him to carry on his memory, especially by doing his eulogy. He must have had a lot of faith in Mitch to trust him in this way. This could have also been the Reb’s way of “touching everything”; he takes chances on people whenever her can in hopes of them remembering him and his
