The Life of Saint Basil the Great: This Saint led Christ’s rational flock to Salvation through every virtue…
Apolytikion: Thy fame has gone forth into all the Earth, which has received thy word. Thereby thou hast taught the Faith; thou hast revealed the nature of created things; thou hast made a Royal Priesthood of the ordered life of men. Venerable Father Basil, intercede with Christ our God that our Souls may be saved.
Kontakion: Thou wast an unshaken foundation of the Church and didst give to all mortals an inviolate lordship which thou didst seal with thy doctrine, O Venerable Basil, revealer of the Mysteries of Heaven.
