Sts. Peter and Fevronia: patrons of family life
« on: May 09, 2011, 09:16:01 PM »
Centuries ago, in Russia, Prince Peter of Murom married the commoner Fevronia. Their lives demonstrated holiness and fidelity: the couple would eventually be canonized.

From the article:
Quote
He told Fevronia about Prince Peter's illness and asked if she knew who could cure him. She told him to bring his master to her house the next day.
