Description

Oil Dedicated to St Glyceria

St Glyceria (died ca. 177 in Heraclea, Propontis) — early Christian saint, Roman virgin.

According to Christian legend, she was forced to pay tribute to a stone statue of Jupiter but it was destroyed while she stood before it. The virgin was imprisoned for this, then sentenced to be torn apart by wild animals. She, however, was not torn apart. Before the animals could render her any harm, St Glyceria died a virgin martyr in Heraclea. Her relics reputedly poured forth the substance known as the Oil of Saints, and her name means “sweetness”.

She is honored on May 13 (Eastern Orthodox liturgics). She is primarily recognized as an Eastern Christian Saint and has fallen out of popularity as a Catholic Saint.
