We celebrate the Feast of St. Basil the Great and St. Gregory Nazianzen.  The link tells you about St. Basil but not about St. Gregory Nazianzen.  St. Gregory was born in 330 and loved learning, so much that he traveled from place to place seeking out good teachers.  He joined St. Basil as a hermit and was subsequently ordained a priest and then elected bishop of Constantinople.  He was a renown teacher, being called Theologus due to his eloquence in teaching about God.  These two saints are honored in the universal Church and are two of the many saints from the Eastern Catholic Church which comprises many rites.

Today I pray for my friend Mike as he follows the vocation that God is calling him to.
