Saint Basil’s entire life was one of suffering, both physical and moral; he lived amidst jealousies, misunderstandings and seeming disappointments. But he sowed the seed which bore good fruit in the future generations. He was God’s instrument to resist the Arian and other heretics in the East, and to restore the spirit of discipline and fervor in the Church. He died peacefully in 379 at the age of fifty-one, and is venerated as a Doctor of the Church.
Feast Day: 14 June (Roman, EF), 2 January (Roman, OF), 1 January (East) - This is one of ten times during the year when the Liturgy of Saint Basil is celebrated.
