Saint Basil the Great
Saint Gregory Nazianzen

Today the Church celebrates the memorial of St. Basil the Great (329-379) and St. Gregory Nazianzen (329-389), two friends who became bishops and doctors of the Church.

O God, who were pleased to give light to your Church
by the example and teaching
of the Bishops Saints Basil and Gregory,
grant, we pray,
that in humility we may learn your truth
and practice it faithfully in charity.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever.Amen.

Basil and Gregory of Nazianzus, Byzantine Fresco, Unknown Artist
