A family of Saints!

It is interesting to learn that Saint Basil’s entire family became saints. His grandmother, father, mother, two brothers, and a sister were all canonized! In your family prayer time today, ask their intercession for your own family’s holiness.

Saints Basilius and Emmelia, Saints Macrina, Basil, Gregory, and Peter: Pray for our families!

Note that the hands of all her holy brothers are shown in the manner in which Eastern Christian priests, both Catholic and Orthodox, give a blessing.
