Asylum- "If you look in the face of evil, evil's going to look right back at you."
-"I'm blessed, with the gift of total clarity. I am more sane now as a mad woman, than I ever was as the head of Briarcliff."
Born Judy Martin, Sr. Jude was once a promiscuous nightclub singer. Alcoholism was said to be a complaint common to her family. She was involved in a drunk-driving accident that injured a young girl. Sister Jude was named after St. Jude, the Apostle. St Jude is the Patron Saint of Lost Causes.
She believes that mental illness is the fashionable explanation for sin. She is dedicated to the management of Briarcliff, hoping to make it a model institution and to atone for past sins. While stern towards her subordinates and those in her care, she is remarkably self-effacing in the presence of Monsignor Timothy Howard, the head of the institution, who she secretly fantasizes about. She does have a capacity for compassion, indicated by her treatment of Sister Mary Eunice and a suffering Jed Potter. She resents Dr. Arden, both for his dismissal of her faith and the free rein he is permitted outside her purview.
