Unlocked Doors

I thought the unlocked church was a thing of the past, but when exploring La Iglesia Catolica Hispana de San Judas Tadeo Apostol, the gate of the compound was left open and the grounds unattended for me to wander through and take photographs.  Initially attracted by the front bell-altar to San Judas Tadeo, upon entering I found smaller quasi-altars and iconography.

San Judas Tadeo, Saint Jude, was one of the Twelve Apostles of Jesus. In the Roman Catholic Church, he is the patron saint of desperate cases and lost causes. His attribute is a club, and he is often shown with a flame around his head representing his presence at Pentecost, where the apostles received the Holy Spirit. San Judas is also often depicted holding an image of Jesus.
