tribulations and sufferings, particularly (here make your request),
and that I may bless God with the Elect throughout Eternity.

Saint Jude holding The Image of Edessa in his hand

St. Jude is traditionally depicted carrying, holding The Image of Edessa in his hand.
The legend of The Image of Edessa was recorded in apocryphal conformity between
Jesus and King Abgar which is reproduced in Eusebius history Ecclesiastica, I, XIII.  Eusebius relates that King Abgar of Edessa (now Sanliurfa in southeast Turkey) sent a letter to Jesus seeking a cure for an illness afflicting him.  With the letter he sent his consul Hannan, the keeper of the archives, offering his own home city to Jesus as a safe dwelling place.  The consul painted a likeness of Jesus with choice paints (or alternatively, impressed with King Abgar's faith).  Jesus pressed His Face into a cloth and gave it to the consul Hannan to take to King Abgar with his answer.  Upon seeing Jesus' image, the King Abgar placed it with great honor in one of his palatial houses.  After Christ's execution, St. Thomas the Apostle sent St. Jude to King Abgar and King Abgar of Edessa was cured.  Astonished, he converted to Christianity, along with many of the people under his rule.
