Basil


Basil, or Basilico, is a beautifully fragrant herb, easy to grow, and sun-loving.  Its aroma is sweet and it helped mark the place where Saint Helen found the life-giving cross.  It is used in cooking and in the Orthodox Christian church utilized when dipped in holy water to offer blessings and veneration.

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on me, a sinner.
