The Story Behind This Icon:

The Saints Anargyroi Cosmas and Damian were twin brothers, who lived in the third century A.D. in Asia Minor. They were both profound doctors and worked for free, hence the name, “Anargyroi”, which in Greek means “without silver”. Under the grace of God, the brother saints made many well and performed many miracles. The two became martyrs of Christ when they were tortured and beheaded for their beliefs. Throughout history, many other twins followed in their footsteps as doctors who healed for free, many of which are saints and known as Anargyroi as well.

The feast day of St. Anargyroi is celebrated on July 1.
