St Basil the Confessor
(February 28)

A friend, contemporary and pupil of St Procopius of Decapolis, Basil faithfully followed his teacher both in peace and in persecu-tion. They endured much from the iconoclasts. When the latter were defeated, by God's providence, Basil returned to his monas-tery together with Procopius, where he lived for a long time in fast-ing and prayer, and where he died in the year 747.
