Patron Saint of Terrible Worst Case Scenarios and Awful Situations. Also Hospitals
One of the original Disciples and the brother of JAMES-THE-LESS.So that he wouldn't be confused with Judas, he was also known as Simon — which caused further confusion as there already was one. But everyone called him Thaddeus and they muddled through.
He is possibly the author of the last Epistle of the New Testament. He went preaching in Persia and became a Martyr at a stroke. Now he's the Patron Saint of lost causes and people in despair. For some obscure reason.
