Veneration of the Precious Chains of Saint Peter the Apostle - Byzantine Icon

[Model: BYZ_st-7011]

Handmade Byzantine Icon of the Veneration of the Precious Chains of Saint Peter the Apostle.

Saint Peter the Apostle was imprisoned after Herod's order for preaching the Gospel. As he was guarded by several members of the guard, none could help him escape. The night before the trial of the Apostle Peter, an Angel appeared in his cell, sent by God to free him.


After he broke the chains with which they had bound Saint Peter the Apostle, led him to the exit without the guards noticing them. After that, the Angel disappeared and the Apostle Peter went to the house of Mary, where the rest of the disciples of Jesus Christ were gathered. The next day, he started a long journey and Herod never found him.


Our Church honors this miraculous event with the feast of the Veneration of the Precious Chains of Saint Peter the Apostle.
