Mystic - Archbishop - Defender of the Faith -Doctor of the Church
Saints beget Saints, and there is no truer analogy than that of St. Basil the Great and his family; and (as we will later see), his friends. It has been a pleasure and distinct honor to bring you the story of one of our Church's greatest Saints - Saint Basil the Great. Saints beget Saints - the Saint we want to share with you came from a family of Saints, literally!
We begin the Roll Call of Saints with his family:
his grandmother, St. Macrina the Elder,
his mother and father, St. Basil the Elder and St. Emmilia,
his brothers St. Gregory of Nyssa and St. Peter of Sebaste
and his sister St. Macrina the Younger.
