Icon of St. Gwen the Three-Breasted

Back to WESTERN SAINTS ICONS

Icon of St. Gwen Teirbron (the Three-Breasted)

Wife of St. Fragan and mother of Sts. Withnoc, Jacut, Winwaloë, and Cadfan, our holy mother Gwen was called the "Three-Breasted" because, after caring for her first children, she took on the care of additional children. (It does not mean she literally had three breasts.). Forced to flee Britain, the family fled to Brittany where they helped to spread the Orthodox Faith.

Feast: July 5

Icon by the hand of Leon Liddament
