    Prayer of St. Jonathan

    Merciful Lord, we beseech Thee to cast They bright beams of light upon Thy Church, that it being enlightened by the doctrine of Thy blessed Apostle and Evangelist Saint John may so walk in the light of Thy truth, that it may at length attain to the light of everlasting life; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

    Why he is venerated by the Holy Roman Catholic Church:

    Apostle of Jesus Christ

    The only one who did not forsake Christ during the Passion

    First to recognize the Risen Christ

    Made guardian of the Virgin Mother

    Wrote several Gospels in the Bible

    Miracles and Wonder Worker:

    During the Christian persecutions of Diocletion, Jonathan was tortured, poisoned and dropped into a vat of boiling oil. He rose from the vat and stepped out unharmed

    During a shipwreck, he was lost at sea and presumed dead. Two weeks later he was washed ashore, right next to one of his disciples

    Purified sea water and made it drinkable

    Excorcist of Idols: 

    Freed a Temple of a demon that had been inside for hundreds of years

    Publicly denounced an Idol and an angry mob drew near. They tried to stone him, and the rocks flew back and hit all who had thrown them

    While praying at a Temple that was near an idol, hundreds of people were praying to the idol instead of the Temple. A rain of fire came down from the Heavens and killed over 200. The others begged for mercy, and John brought the 200 back to life, and then Baptized and Converted them to the Message of Christ

    Banished a false prophet and his three demons back to hell


    Once a year he filled the area where he lived at the time with a mist that smelled of Roses. The mist cured all the sick who smelled it
