Wooden pendant amulet with Saint Basil

A wonderful wood-carved amulet from Mount Athos with a relief representation of Saint Basil.

It is an elegant & handy handiwork made in linden or cherry wood, by monks with great skill in wood processing. In a relatively small size and with a well-thought-out construction (thanks to the cord on top), it can be placed anywhere in the house, in the car or even in a bag, so that the believer feels that he always has the Grace and protection of the Saint close to him.

At the same time, it can be a very beautiful gift for the people we love.

On the back is the exact name of the representation.

Saint Basil (1 January)

This great father and teacher of the Orthodox Church was born in Neocaesarea of Pontus, or according to others in Caesarea of Cappadocia. He had 8 siblings, 3 boys and five girls. Of the 4 boys, 3 boys became bishops (Basil of Caesarea, Gregory of Nyssa and Peter of Sebastia) and one monk (Naukratios). Of his 5 sisters, the first, and at the same time the eldest child of the family, Makrina, became a nun.

Armed with this Christian upbringing, and with the gifts of ingenuity and memory, Saint Basil begins an amazing spiritual upward course, conquering almost all the sciences of his time. Most importantly, he conquers the divine theory of the Gospel, which he immediately puts into practice with his strict ascetic life.

Basil the Great has a rich and important literary work. Among his other works, he also wrote a Divine Liturgy, which, after the victory of this shorter one of St. St. John Chrysostom is celebrated 10 times a year.

Because of his weak state and strict ascetic life, he leaves this perishable and futile world at the age of fifty, leaving a legacy and sacred legacy to humanity a tremendous spiritual work.
