Apostle Philip (of the Seventy): Commemorated Oct. 11 (Church in the East) / June 6 (Church in the West)

From the title it is uncertain whether this is Philip Apostle (of the Twelve) or Philip Apostle (of the Seventy)  Because of the angel addressing him and because of the little birds at his feet (possibly his 4 daughters), I think it is Apostle Philip (of the Seventy)

sheltering images of
Heart of Mary and
wheat & vine
mingled with
roses & lilies,
add visual poetry
& depth of meaning.
