Basil of Caesarea ("the Great") - Pugnacious saint and theologian of the Spirit
Mention the "church fathers" to a Western Christian, and Basil the Great (c.330-379) is not usually the first name to come to mind. Yet even for the Roman Catholic Church, Basil ranks with his friend Gregory of Nazianzus and John Chrysostom as one of the great propounders and defenders of the faith.

Prayer of Saint Basil on his Feast Day
"Lord our God, teach us to ask for the right blessings. Steer the vessel of our life toward You, tranquil haven of all storm-tossed souls. Show us the course wherein we should go. Renew a willing spirit within us. Let Your Spirit curb our wayward senses, and guide and enable us unto that which is our true good, to keep Your laws, and in all our works everywhere to rejoice in Your glorious and gladdening Presence. For Yours is the glory and praise from all Your saints for ever and ever. Amen."
