As spring appears, so does the color green, with trees and plant life reemerging. Basil (from the Greek for "royal") is the name of a popular green herb and also of a 4th-century bishop, one of fathers of the early Christian Church, St. Basil the Great. A prolific writer known for his charity, Basil was instrumental in defending the faith during turbulent times.
