St. Basil the Great (360): “Much time had I spent in vanity, and had wasted nearly all my youth acquiring the sort of wisdom made foolish by God. Then once, like a man roused from deep sleep, I turned my eyes to the marvelous light of the truth of the Gospel, and I perceived the uselessness of the ‘wisdom… of the rulers of this age, who are doomed to pass away’ (1 Cor. 2:6). I wept many tears over my miserable life and I prayed that I might receive guidance to admit me to the doctrines of the true religion.”
“Lord, thou hast been our refuge from generation to generation. Before the mountains were made, or the earth and the world were formed, from eternity and to eternity thou art God.” (Psalm 89:1-2)
