Icon of St. Ninian, Apostle to the Picts

Feast: Sept. 16

St. Ninian was the first of the great missionaries to Scotland. He was spiritually and monastically formed by St. Martin of Tours, in the monastery of Marmoutier in Gaul. He built a church of white stone, which was then unusual, and is praised by St. Bede in his history. Holy Father Ninian, pray to God for us! 

Icon: by the hand of Aidan Hart, Oecumenical Patriarchate, UK. Many thanks to servant of God Aidan for making an entire set of his sublime icons available to the Western Saints Icon Project.

Next is shown the entrance to the Cave of St. Ninian, where an annual Orthodox Christian pilgrimage is made, and the Holy Liturgy celebrated. 

Beneath is an image of a St. Ninian's cross, available from Gallery Byzantium.
