|St. John Holy Oil|
There is a vigil lamp (lampada) at the relics of Saint John that burns with an eternal flame (pictured above on the right side of the photo). The oil from this lamp is used to anoint the sick with fervent prayers to Saint John for his intercession before God on their behalf.
The oil in the vigil lamp (after a certain period of time) is transferred to small bottles and given out to anyone who wishes to receive them. These bottles can be obtained at the Cathedral by asking for them at the Candle Stand. For those people who are unable to travel to the Cathedral you can now order these bottles online for shipment to you or to your loved ones. You can request St. John's oil by completing the form below.
Donations to support the shipping and handling costs are greatly appreciated.
