Mariam shares from four homilies by St. Basil related to social justice. "He draws from all different parts of the Bible, he talks about social justice, he talks about the ways that the rich and the poor need to work together in community, and everyone should be giving from what they have, whatever it is. There's no definition, no formula, of a rich person and a poor person. We are all just people who have received gifts from God and are responsible for giving of those gifts to God's glory."
