Description

St Juliana of Nicomedia healing oil

The St Juliana of Nicomedia healing oil is dedicated to the 3rd century virgin and martyr.

Saint Juliana is said to have suffered Christian martyrdom during the Diocletian persecution in 304. She was popular in the Middle Ages in the Netherlands, as the patron saint of sickness.

Both the Latin and Greek Churches mention a holy martyr Juliana in their lists of saints, for 16 February.  She was born in  Cumae in Campaia. 

A Christian virgin of Cumae, Italy, martyred for the faith when she refused to marry a Roman prefect. She suffered terrible ordeals  and was finally beheaded. One tradition reports that Juliana actually suffered martyrdom at Nicomedia and that her relics were transferred to Cumae. She is depicted in liturgical art as surrounded by flames, or binding the devil.

Tradition of oils

The tradition of anointing with sacred oil is very old indeed. It is used in sacraments and also as a devotional practice. The sick person applies the oil and blesses themselves. As they do so, they are asked to pray to whomever the oil is dedicated to. The Irish blessings oils do not have miraculous power.  It is God who has the power to heal.  Applying the oil while praying are important ways for us to express our faith in God’s power. Moreover, by doing so we place our trust in God.

 The Irish Blessings oils are dedicated to the Holy Spirit, Our Lady and the saints. The oils come through prayer.  They are placed on their designated altars for a period of prayer before being sent out. The oils are of therapeutic grade.
