Without financial supporters of the Mystagogy Resource Center, it would not exist. One long time supporter is currently facing a crisis of being evicted from her home and having her car repossessed. She and her family need help by this coming Tuesday to prevent this, at least $2,000 is needed. Please help me to give back to her. She would like to remain anonymous, so she asked that any financial aid can be sent through this ministry, which will then be directed to her. Thank you for helping with what you can.

Homily on the Forty Martyrs of Sebaste (St. Basil the Great)


St. Basil's homily on the Forty Martyrs of Sebaste was delivered in 373, most probably on 9 March, their annual feast day. It was preached in the Martyrium of the Forty in Ceasarea.

The following translation of the text is from Let Us Die that We May Live: Greek Homilies on Christian Martyrs from Asia Minor, Palestine and Syria (c. A.D. 350 - A.D. 450) by Johan Leemans, Pauline Allen, Boudewijn Dehandschutter, Wendy Mayer. It can also be read here.
