From the Menaion - 22 March


On 22 March, we commemorate the holy hieromartyr Basil, priest of the Church of Ancyra.

If the prophet said there was no soundness in his bones, what could be said of the cruel gashes the martyrs suffered without saying anything? Basil was rasped by the scrapers on the twenty-second.

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