Anyone here know how I can get oil from the lamp of St. John of San Francisco (other than by driving out there lol)?  Thank you!

You could have actually given it to someone you knew from church if you weren't going to use it yourself.  I'm sure someone would have appreciated it if you wouldn't.

True, but I don't know anyone near the Cathedral or anyone going there anytime soon.  Do you know anyone near there?

Yeah, moi.  "Near" is relative, but I'll be there probably in the next few weeks.  PM me if you want.

Drew,

I became reacquainted with an old friend Friday night who just happens to be a hieromonk at St. John's Cathedral. I can give you his email address and he most likely will send it to you if you can pay for the shipping costs. Let me know if you want me to give you his email address.

sincerely, Tamara

Fr. Feodosi or James Carazza or neither?  Just curious.  If Feodosi, I'm surprised - I've heard he's rather reluctant to give out any contact info.
