The Transfiguration of Our Lord
His face shone like the sun, and His garments became white as snow. A bright cloud overshadowed them and a voice from the cloud said, "This is my Beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased; listen to Him." When the disciples heard this, they fell on their faces with awe. But Jesus came and touched them saying, "rise, and have no fear." (Matthew 17)

Saints Peter and Paul Fast : June 8 - 28


June 29, is the Feast Day of Saints Peter and Paul. Shown together on this icon, Saint Peter and Saint Paul, became Apostles in different ways.

Peter was chosen by Christ, and was with Him during His earthly ministry. Paul, who was a terrible persecutor of Christians, was converted to Christianity later.

Both sealed with their blood the testimony of their faith. Peter was crucified, head downward in Rome on June 29th. On that same day, Paul was beheaded also in Rome. Their martyrdom occured in the year 67 A.D. during the persecution of Christians under the Roman Emperor Nero. Saint Peter who was crucified on the cross as was Jesus, chose to be crucified upside down, because he felt unworthy to share the same manner of death as Christ.
