St. Basil the Great

Saint Basil Cathedral

Saint Basil Cathedral is located on the Red Square in Moscow, Russia.  It is the most frequented building by tourists and the most well known attraction in Russia.  The Saint Basil Cathedral is an international symbol of Russia and for Moscow. 

It was originally commissioned by Ivan the Terrible to celebrate the victory over Khanate of Kazan.  Construction of the Saint Basil Cathedral took place from 1555 – 1561.

The cathedral is commonly known by the following names:

  •       Cathedral of Intercession of the Virgin on the Moat
  •       Cathedral of the Protection of the Mother of God
  •       Pokrovskiy Cathedral
  •       Cathedral of Saint Basil the Blessed
  •       Saint Basil’s Cathedral
St Basil the Great Patron Saint 
Ivan Names the Cathedral after Saint Basil

Ivan the Terrible referred to the Cathedral of the Intercession as St. Basil’s Cathedral because he was in awe of Saint Basil the Great.  Ivan was so impressed with Saint Basil because in 1547, St. Basil predicted the fire that ravaged Moscow during that year.  When St. Basil died, Ivan buried him in the Trinity Cathedral which stood on the sight of the Saint Basil Cathedral.

Saint Basil Cathedral – a Sacred Destination

Saint Basil Cathedral remains a sacred destination today for Christians from all over the world.  The stunning cathedral emanates the splendor of the Holy Spirit for all who enter.  Many Christians wear a Saint Basil medal or a Saint Basil pendant when visiting this grand cathedral.  They pray at the interior chapels, especially the chapel on the lower floor where the body of St. Basil the Blessed lies in rest.

Prayer of Saint Basil the Great

O God and Lord of the Powers, and Maker of all creation, Who, because of Thy clemency and incomparable mercy, didst send Thine Only-Begotten Son and our Lord Jesus Christ for the salvation of mankind, and with His venerable Cross didst tear asunder the record of our sins, and thereby didst conquer the rulers and powers of darkness; receive from us sinful people, O merciful Master, these prayers of gratitude and supplication, and deliver us from every destructive and gloomy transgression, and from all visible and invisible enemies who seek to injure us. Nail down our flesh with fear of Thee, and let not our hearts be inclined to words or thoughts of evil, but pierce our souls with Thy love, that ever contemplating Thee, being enlightened by Thee, and discerning Thee, the unapproachable and everlasting Light, we may unceasingly render confession and gratitude to Thee: The eternal Father, with Thine Only-Begotten Son, and with Thine All-Holy, Gracious, and Life-Giving Spirit, now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen.
