Basil the Great

Bishop of Caesarea
b. 330
d. 379 n

One of the Holy Doctors of the Church, Basil confronted Arianism, and in so doing defended the doctrine of the Trinity. He, along with the rest of his family (notably his sister Macrina), upheld orthodoxy and liturgy, and devoted much of his time and effort helping those in need, especially children. Indeed, Saint Basil is to the Eastern (especially Greek) Church what Saint Nicholas is to the Western.

Collect:

Almighty God, who hast revealed to thy Church thine eternal Being of glorious majesty and perfect love as one God in Trinity of Persons: Give us grace that, like thy bishop Basil of Caesarea, we may continue steadfast in the confession of this faith, and constant in our worship of thee, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; who livest and reignest for ever and ever. Amen.
