St. John was exiled to the island of Patmos by Emperor Domitian around 90-95 A.D., and it was there that he received and wrote the Book of Revelation.
"Account of the [[miracle]] that occurred at his grave:When over 100 years old, St. John took seven [[disciple]]s outside of Ephesus and had them dig a grave in the shape of a cross. St. John then went into the grave, and the disciples buried him there, alive. Later on, when his grave was opened, St. John's body was not there. "'On May 8 of each year, dust rises up from his grave, by which the sick are healed of various diseases.' " []
