Dear Readers: A long time supporter of the Mystagogy Resource Center has informed me that they would like to donate $3000 to help me continue the work of this ministry, but they will only do it as a matching donation, which means that this generous donation will only be made after you help me raise a total of $3000. If you can help make this happen, it will be greatly appreciated and it would be greatly helpful to me, as I have not done a fundraiser this year. If you enjoy the work done here and want to see more of it, please make whatever contribution you can through the DONATE link below. Thank you!
(Total So Far - Day 4: $1750)

Saint Basil, Bishop of Trebizond

St. Basil, Bishop of Trebizond (Feast Day - October 20)

Saint Basil, Bishop of Trebizond, is absent in the Synaxaria, however he is a local saint of the Church in Trebizond, where his commemoration was kept yearly with a Service of Praise, which Athanasios Papadopoulos-Kerameus (+ 1912) found in a manuscript in Trebizond, as he records in his Byzantine Chronicles S.12, 143. He lived during the reign of Emperors Leo VI the Wise (886-912) and Constantine VII Porphyrogenitos (913-959). For the holiness of his life, he was numbered among the Saints of Trebizond.
