Saint of the Day: January 2nd

About the Image:

Saints Basil the Great and Gregory Nazianzen were fourth-century bishops who became saints and doctors of the Church for their devoted defense of the faith. They were known for their close friendship and their efforts to combat the Arian heresy, which denied the divinity of Christ. Both came from families of saints and made significant contributions to the Church. Basil, born in 329, is the patron saint of monks, hospital administrators, reformers, and Russia, while Gregory, also born around 329, is the patron saint of harvests and poets. They are celebrated on January 2nd as Bishops and Doctors of the Church. Basil was known for his work in monasticism, and Gregory was recognized for his important contributions to the Church's understanding of God, especially the mystery of the Trinity. Their friendship and leadership have left a lasting impact on the Church[1][2][4][5].
