To grow spiritually St Benedict advised his monks to turn East. ‘Read St Basil’, he said, and find a wise guide and a true path. What can we learn from those ancient saints and thinkers of early Christianity that we have so long forgotten? St Basil who saw the whole world as the ‘theatre of God’s glory’ but would not neglect the feet of his brother; St John Chrysostom who dazzled the people with his preaching and showed passionate concern for the poor; Gregory of Nysa, was a married bishop and mystic of the otherness of God? What do we make of their radical vision of Christianity and what would they say to us now? The Christian tradition runs deep.
