And at even, when the sun did set, they brought to him all that were diseased, and them that were possessed with devils.…
When one of the greatest of God's heroes, one of the most illustrious saints of Christendom, made an oration — preached, as we should say, a funeral sermon — concerning a brother, holy and heroic, whose soul was in Paradise — when Gregory of Nazianzum would show unto the people how, though Basil rested from his labours, his works did follow, and he being dead yet spoke — he pointed towards the hospital which Basil had built, and said, "Go forth a little out of the city, and see the new city, his treasure of godliness, the storehouse of alms which he collected; see the place where disease is relieved by charity and by skill, where the poor leper finds at last a home! It was Basil who persuaded men to care for others; it was Basil who taught them thus to honour Christ."
(Canon S. R. Hole, M. A.)
