Sts. Basil the Great & Gregory Nazianzen
Patron Saint of Hospital Administrators
(St. Basil the Great)
On January 2, the Church honors Sts. Basil the Great and Gregory Nazianzen, two friends who were pillars of orthodoxy during a period of chaos and confusion, namely the time in which the Church faced the far-reaching heresy of Arianism, which denied the divinity of Christ – an ordeal the Church has never forgotten.
These two friends steered the barc of St. Peter safely through the dangerous and stormy seas of heresy.
