Basil and Gregory, Bishops and Doctors of the Church
Today is the feast of St. Basil the Great and St. Gregory of Nazianzen, both bishops and doctors of the Eastern Church. Anyone taking my online course can tell you about these who are two of the Cappadocian trio of Fathers; Basil's brother, Gregory of Nyssa is the third. All proclaimed the truth that Jesus is both human and devine!
May your new year be a holy and happy one!
"The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord let his face shine upon you, and be gracious to you!
The Lord look upon you kindly and give you peace!"
