Feast: Basil the Great (and Gregory Nazianzen, too)

2 January 2007

basil.jpgThe esteemed Cappadocian Father Basil the Great’s feast occurs today. My breviary says Gregory Nazianzen’s feast is today, too, although I remember that some observe it in May. I’ll give each his own day, although my breviary might not.

This is a big feast day in the Christian East, with certain customs both at home and at church. I’m not that familiar with them, but if a reader is, please comment and educate us.
