  1. Dear Fr. Basil,
    My Heart goes out to you. I am reading the life of Saint Paisios…immediately I will ask him to make you well…if he hears me…I’m pretty lowly though, Fr. Basil.
    Keep us well-informed…I’ve been thinking of you.

  2. Dear Father Basil,
    I’m so sorry to hear this. Lord have mercy on you and I pray you recover soon.
