Description

St Erasmus Healing Oil (Patron for Liver Problems)

St Erasmus Patron Liver of Formia, also known as Saint Elmo (died c. 303), was a Christian saint and martyr. He venerated as the patron saint of sailors and abdominal pain. Erasmus or Elmo also one of the Fourteen Holy Helpers, saintly figures of Christian tradition who venerated especially as intercessors.

The Acts of Saint Elmo partly compiled from legends that confuse him with a Syrian bishop Erasmus of Antioch. Jacobus de Voragine in the Golden Legend credited him as a bishop at Formia over all the Italian Campania. As a hermit on Mount Lebanon, and a martyr in the Diocletianic Persecution. There appears to be no historical basis for his passio.

Erasmus Bishop of Formia, Italy. During the persecution against Christians under the emperors Diocletian (284-305) and Maximian Hercules (286-305), he left his diocese and went to Mount Libanus, where he hid for seven years. However, an angel said to have appeared to him, and counseled him to return to his city.

On the way, he encountered some soldiers who questioned him. Erasmus admitted that Christian and they brought him to trial at Antioch before the emperor Diocletian. After suffering terrible tortures, he bound with chains and thrown into prison, but an angel appeared and helped him escape.

He passed through Lycia, where he raised up the son of an illustrious citizen. This resulted in a number of baptisms, which drew the attention of the Western Roman Emperor Maximian who, according to Voragine, “much worse than was Diocletian.” Maximian ordered his arrest and Erasmus continued to confess his faith. They forced him to go to a temple of the idol, but along Erasmus’s route all the idols fell and were destroyed, and from the temple there came fire which fell upon many of the pagans.
