The Feast of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul

The icon depicts Sts. Peter and Paul a loving embrace. The two weren't always in agreement with one another, and they often argued about many things, but they never lost the love that they had for each other as brothers in Christ. And they never lost the zeal that kept them preaching the Gospel of Christ to all nations. For this reason, the Orthodox Church celebrates their memories on June 29th.

There's a good lesson for all Christians to be had here.

Whenever I see this icon, I think of it as a triumph over the events of Galatians 2. Thanks for the reminder--and thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting a little while ago!
