What a church holiday tomorrow June 4th
June 4 in the church calendar – St. Basil’s Day. He lived during the reign of Emperor Maximian and preached Christianity, for which he was imprisoned. While imprisoned, the Basilisk began to prepare for his sacrifice. But suddenly he was released, so he went to his own land and bade farewell to his family.
The man told his relatives that he would see him for the last time. When the ruler learned that the guards had released the martyr, he was enraged and immediately ordered his hands tied and imprisoned again. He was forced to sacrifice to the pagan gods, but he refused. For this, his head was cut off with a sword and his body was thrown into the river.
