St Theophanes the Merciful.

Commemorated September 29 in the Orthodox Christian Menaion

From the Prologue

A wealthy citizen of Gaza, he was so merciful that he gave away his goods to the poor and himself became one of them. Near the end of his life, he was stricken with dropsy and died of this sickness. A healing myrrh flowed from his body, by which many of the sick were healed.
