VERSO

  • TOP Lobe – a representation of St Nicholas, the 4th Century bishop of Myra and
    patron Saint of Russia. This holy bishop is the patron of children, sailors,
    travelers, jewelers and pawn brokers.” There is a Russian folk saying that when God becomes old and
    tired and he does not want to rule the world he will turn the ruling of the
    world to St Nicholas. Russians have great devotion of their Holy Father
    Nicholas.
  • RIGHT AND LEFT LOBES – SS Peter and Paul. St Peter was the “first” of the Apostles and the bishop
    of Rome. St Paul originally persecuted Christians later becoming one of the
    prime exponents of the church.

    guide in life.
