St. John’s Day 2023: Every year on December 27, people around the world mark St. John’s Day. The “Feast of St. John” is another name for the day. The author of the fourth gospel and the book of “Revelation” is St. John. He frequently appears with other gospel writers like Matthew, Mark, and Luke, or seated across from Mary at the foot of the cross. The eagle is a symbol for the saint. In addition, he was featured in many Catholic tales, such as Filippino Lippi and the frescoes by Giotto in the Peruzzi Chapel at Santa Croce in Florence. In the Roman Catholic faith, he is a significant figure.

The History Of St John

The day of a saint’s death is typically observed as their feast day. The only two saints whose birthdays are commemorated instead are St. John and the Virgin Mary. In Europe, St. John the Baptist was honored on St. John’s Day. It could have been because the dates fell on ancient pagan holidays honoring the summer solstice. Countries including Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania commemorate the feast day today. People kindle bonfires in observance of the holiday. They also held the belief that ghosts roamed free on the summer solstice.

To stave off evil spirits and shield oneself from harm, bonfires were lit. Eventually, people also began to think that bonfires were a good method to keep dragons and witches at bay during the summer solstice. According to the “Gospel of Luke,” John the Baptist was the leader of the baptism effort at the Jordan River and a relative of Jesus. Theologians claim that John dipped Jesus into the river and baptized him there.

The prophecy of Jesus’ arrival, or the Messiah, is what has made St. John most famous. According to the “Gospel of Mark,” Herod jailed John for criticizing the king’s incestuous union. Because Herod married his niece—something that the Old Testament Law forbade—John denounced Herod for doing so. But the sad place of his death would be in Herod’s wife. The head of John the Baptist was brought to Herod’s wife on a dish upon her request.
