Brothers Reunited

And Jesus, walking by the Sea of Galilee, saw two brothers, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea; for they were fishermen.  Matthew 4:17-19

There is an icon, that was commissioned fifty years ago showing the brother apostles Peter and Andrew in an embrace and with an inscription:  To His Holiness, the Pope of Rome, Paul VI [from] Athenagoras of Constantinople in remembrance of [our] meeting in Jerusalem, January 5, 1964. 

If you want more information to the weekend's historic event you can follow the blog Apostolic Pilgrimage to Jerusalem.
