Life of the Saint: John was the son of Zebedee the fisherman and Salome the daughter of Joseph, the betrothed of the Holy Theotokos. Called by the Lord Jesus, John immediately left his father and his fishermen's nets and, with his brother James, followed Christ. St. John converted many to Christianity by words and miracles, and confirmed well the Church of God. He also wrote his Gospel and Revelation. The feast day of this great apostle and evangelist is celebrated on September 26. May 8 commemorates the miracle which occurred at his grave. When John was over hundred years old, he took seven of his disciples, went outside the town of Ephesus, and ordered them to dig a grave in the form of a cross. Then the elder went down alive into grave and was buried. Later, when the faithful opened John's grave, they did not find his body. On May 8 of every year, dust rises up from his grave, by which the sick are healed of various diseases.
