Both Apostles, being chosen by our Lord, were instrumental in the establishment and growth of the early Church through their boldness, spiritual strength, and wisdom. Thus they are recognized as "pillars" of the Church, having offered all even unto death for the sake of the Gospel of Christ.
In this icon commissioned especially for Legacy Icons, the Apostle Paul, the great missionary of the early Church, is holding a Gospel book, while the Apostle Peter offers a blessing with his right hand.
These two chiefs of the Apostles are commemorated together on June 29.
Beautiful icon; must have

Gorgeous icon that is a necessity in every home. The style is very clean and precise, and with Legacy's printing techniques, the Prince of the Apostles and Apostle to the Gentiles come to life. Make sure you have some good prayers to ask these saints for their guidance through this icon.
