St. Peter Thomas, Patriarch of Constantinople: Memorial, Jan. 8

Saint Peter-Thomas, Patriarch of Constantinople
Blessed are the lives of those who are consumed in the service of Holy Church! 
~ St. Teresa of Jesus 

St. Peter Thomas was inspired by an intense desire to promote peace and Christian unity. Quoting from the web site below, "His life may be summarized in three words: Mary, Union of the Greeks, and Jerusalem."

I love the artist's touch of placing over the Carmelite heart the monogram of Mary.
