St Basil the Great ~  Born 329  Died 379 ~ Feast Day January 2nd.

“Troubles are usually the brooms and shovels that smooth the road to a good man’s fortune; and many a man curses the rain that falls upon his head, and knows not that it brings abundance to drive away hunger.”  + St. Basil the Great

St Gregory of Nazianzus ~  Born 329  Died 390 ~ Feast Day January 2nd.

Let us treasure up in our soul some of those things which are permanent – not of those which will forsake us and be destroyed, and which only tickle our senses for a little while.
+ Gregory of Nazianzus
