King Abkar V of Odessa
This Saturday is the Feast of King Abkar, King Abkar was stricken with leprosy and had heard of Jesus' miracles. Acknowledging Jesus' divine mission. Abkar wrote a letter of correspondence to Jesus Christ asking to be cured of his aliment. He then invited Jesus to seek refuge in Edessa as a safe haven from persecution. In His reply, Jesus applauded the king for his faith but then turned down the request. He expressed regret that His mission in life precluded Him from visiting the city. Jesus blessed Abkar and promised after He ascended into heaven, one of His disciples would heal all of the illnesses of the king and his subject in Edessa.
