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.
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.
