St Servatius Healing Oil 2 (Patron for Lameness and Foot Problems)
St Servatius Patron Lameness was the Bishop of Tongeren born in the 4th century in Armenia and died on May 13 384 AD in Maastricht, Netherlands. We celebrate his feast day on May 13 every year in the Catholic Church.
Saint Servatius of Tongeren born in Armenia but moved to Belgium where he became bishop of Tongeren for 37 years.
Servatius hosted Saint Athanasius of Alexandria during his exile by the Arians. In 346 Servatius removed the heretical bishop of Cologne in Germany. In 359 he was present at the Council of Rimini.
He died on May 13 384 at Maastricht in the Netherlands of Fever. Miracles reported at his tomb.
A widely travelled diplomat and a determined opponent of Arianism, the presence of Servatius recorded at several synods and church councils.
In 343, Sarbatios – Greek texts rendering v as b – present at the Council of Sardica (modern Sofia).
In the debates, Servatius represented the Trinitarian view, which clashed with the Arian view of most Eastern bishops.
According to Sulpicius Severus, Servatius again eloquently denounced Arianism at the Council of Rimini in 359.
When Athanasius, the leading opponent of Arianism, exiled to Trier (in 336 or 343), he may have met with Servatius, because both men campaigned against Arian bishops and priests in the region.
