A soul of mediator or conciliator
With Basil the Great of Caesarea, the head and the heart perform in unison! With such a bright intelligence as Trinitarian Theology Specialist and Destroyer of Arianism, he is the Church Doctor and Father like his friend Gregory of Nazianzen.
But Basil also incarnates the concern for the poor, for the marginalized. True precursor of social Christianity, he founded in his diocese public assistance arrangements ahead of his time.
And still Basil, by the Rule he had given to monasteries of the Eastern Church, which was later inspired Saint Benedict for his Western monks, is a hyphen between the two lungs of the Church.
All his life was devoted to the unity of the Church, he was a soul of mediator.
Humbly, let us follow the Saints' footsteps to respond to our Christian vocation andalking together along with them on our journey towards the holiness.
"In this respect, the holiness as the Church worships is the result of active and free participation or involvement, decided by the Saint to the Divine Grace given to him, which transforms him, little by little to the extent of his desire and heart." Brother Sam
Why pray with the Saints?
Just because they are our “elder brothers”, ready to reach us out to climb the mountain. In this ascension that is Faith, we're not alone. The Saints can be this extended hand when we slide, this comforting shoulder when we're sad, this precious friend when we're in doubt.
In this communion, in this "common union", we're part of a big family.
"If Saints are our elder brothers", they have only one desire for us, that we can live and breathe like them, the experience of the fullness of God's love, rewards, beauty and presence. "
