For God so loved the world, as to give His only begotten Son; that whosoever believeth in Him, may not perish, but may have life everlasting. – Saint John the Apostle

Saint Basil the Great and Saint Gregory Nazianzen

Note: Since January 2 is the memorial of both Saint Basil the Great and Saint Gregory Nazianzen, today I decided to give you a quotation from each.

Through the Holy Spirit we are restored to paradise, led back to the Kingdom of heaven, and adopted as children, given confidence to call God "Father" and to share in Christ's grace, called children of light and given a share in eternal glory. 

-- Saint Basil the Great

*       *       *       *        *       *       *

Different men have different names, which they owe to their parents or to themselves, that is, to their own pursuits and achievements. But our great pursuit, the great name we wanted, was to be Christians, to be called Christians. 

--Saint Gregory Nazianzen
