The Feast of St. Basil the Great, 2014
“A spiritual person is one who no longer lives by the flesh but is led by the Spirit of God . . . As the power of sight is active in a healthy eye, so the Holy Spirit is active in a purified soul.”
Basil the Great, On the Holy Spirit
Friends in Christ,
As we enter into this Season after Pentecost, St. Basil reminds us that the very purpose of the human soul is to be filled with and activated by the Holy Spirit. He tells us that sight is to our eyes, what the Holy Spirit is to our souls.
This Sunday we celebrate the Feast of the Holy Trinity. We also celebrate Father’s Day! May God our heavenly Father continue to purify our souls and unite us with His Son by the grace of the Holy Spirit.
See you in church!
