- Christ is Risen! + Truly, He is Risen!
Those that have lapsed from the lofty height of life into sin He raises from their fall: for this reason He is Resurrection (cf. John 11:25). Effectually working by the touch of His power and the will of His goodness He does all things. He shepherds; He enlightens; He nourishes; He heals; He guides; He raises up; He calls into being things that were not; He upholds what has been created.
Basil, On the Holy Spirit
- Are you poor? You know someone who is even poorer. You have provisions for only ten days, but someone else has enough for one day. As a good and generous person, redistribute you surplus to the needy.
Basil, On Social Justice
