From the Menaion - 28 February


On 28 February, we commemorate our venerable father Basil the Confessor, companion in asceticism to holy Procopios.

Basil carried Christ in his soul. But he renders up that soul, releasing the shadow for the sake of the true Good. On the twenty-eighth, the earth offers his body a refuge, but his spirit exults in joy in Heaven.

By his holy prayers, O our God, take pity on us and save us. Amen.
