Orthodox icon of Saint Zacchaeus the Apostle.
Commemoarated April 20.
Apostle Zacchaeus was a rich publican at Jericho. Since he was short of stature, he climbed a sycamore tree in order to see Jesus Christ our Savior passing by. After the Ascention of our Lord, he accompanied St. Peter on his travels. According to the tradition of our Church, he followed St. Peter in Caesarea, where St. peter appointed him Bishop of Caesarea in Palestine. He died in piece.
