His holy body rests entirely in anchoress of Ostrog, non- susceptible to decay, for over a hundred years. The church where lie the relics of the Holy One of Ostrog is filled with a pleasant smell, which amazes each admirer. The fact of incorrupt body of this great saint, a phenomenon for itself, we Christians call - miracle. This phenomenon can only be understood and explained by the sacred life of Ostrog Saint. A life of St. Basil was truly a life in God, life after Christ, in which everything and all was Christ. Even greater miracle and proof of sanctity of St. Basil is the miraculous power of his non- decaying body. He, who in his earthly life was more like an angel than a man, lifted his spirit to the throne of God, and his body non-demise. This sacred body was during the earthly life the temple of the Holy Spirit, and after parting with his godlonging soul become a treasure trove of the grace of God. St. Basil of the Serbian Church in our Lord was appointed to a special mission, assistant and healer of the sick and needy, who with firm faith and love come and approach him as a great miracle maker and God pleaser.
