Today in the Byzantine/ Greek Catholic Churches, we celebrate the feast of the Three Holy Hierarchs: St Gregory the Theologian, St John Chrysostom, and Saint Basil the Great. Troparion of the Holy Hierarchs: “Let us come together in honor with hymns and sings the Three Great Stars of the Threefold Sun of the Holy Trinity.

They enlightened the universe with the rays of their divine doctrine, flowing with holy rivers of wisdom and refreshing the desert with streams of divine wisdom: Basil the Great, Gregory the Theologian; and John the famous orator, the Golden Mouthed. Let us express in hymns our love for their teaching, for they are constantly interceding for us before the Holy Trinity!
