A beautiful icon of St. Peter the Aleut
I learned about St. Peter the Aleut recently, from a children’s book. His story was writen simply, and his martyrdom was not really detailed (because it was for kids) but his martyrdom really touched me. Since then, I always ask for his prayers to our Lord. I really don’t know if I had the courage to yell, "I am a Christian, I will not change my faith", as he did.
You can read his inspiring story here. I am sure you will be touched, as I did.
May God give to all of us courage and strength to defend the Orthodox Christian faith until our last breath. May St. Peter, this humble Aleut that gave his life for Jesus, pray for us!
