Saint John, the son of Zebedee, and the brother of Saint James the Great, was called to be an Apostle by our Lord. He was the only one of the Twelve who did not forsake the Savior in the hour of His Passion.
Saint John stood faithfully at the cross when Jesus made him the guardian of His Mother. During the era of the new Church, he preached in Jerusalem and at Ephesus. He was, with the other apostles, taken prisoner and scourged by the Jews, and in the year 95, under the Emperor Domitian, was thrown into a vessel of boiling oil. Having endured this torture without burns or injury, he was then banished to the island of Patmos for a year.
He died at Ephesus in 101 and is credited with the authorship of three epistles, one Gospel, and the Book of Revelation.
Saint John is recognized today as the patron of those suffering from burns. His feast day is December 27th.
Saint John the Apostle, Pray for Us.
