Re: Could anyone help me garner information on YOUHANON SLEEHA
- 'O' Fr. Mani Rajan,
Thank You, That was so nice of you. I am a parish member of St.Johns church, So I thought of having some input about St.John's. If you manage to get any photographs please do send it. Once again I thank you for your precious time.
- Respected Father,
Thank you for writing such an authentic article. Though the incidents mentioned in the Holy Bible are familiar to all, the historicals events illustrated are entirely new to everybody. It feels wonderful also.

Evangelist and Theologian, as photography was invented only recently.
There are several Eastern Orthodox icons of St.John available.
The following is an icon of St. John from the Greek Orthodox Church.
You can see another icon at:
There is yet another icon at:
I like the last one better, where the saint is depicted as a darker
skinned man. When we see all the saints, apostles and angels depicted
as fair skinned people in iconography, atleast in the subconscious
people might think that this is a person much different from me. When
the Saints are depicted in iconography as someone who looks like and
has the same complexion of the people in the congregation, the saint
is more like one among us.
