Oil Dedicated to John Bishop of Polybotum from A Blessed Call To Love, Ireland.
Saint John, Bishop of Polybotum (in Phrygia), known as a denouncer of the heresy and impiety of Emperor Leo the Isaurian. Saint John opposed Leo for his iconoclasm, and taught his flock the Orthodox doctrine of the veneration of icons.
The saint died at the beginning of the eighth century. The Lord granted him the gift of healing the infirm and casting out evil spirits.
