Gregory of Nazianzus on the Trinity

As you prepare for worship this Lord’s Day, remember that all true Christian worship is Trinitarian in shape and substance. Consider these words from Gregory of Nazianzus, [330-394 A.D.]:
“No sooner do I conceive of the one than I am illuminated by the splendor of the three; no sooner do I distinguish them than I am carrried back to the one. When I think of any one of the three I think of him as the whole, and my eyes are filled, and the greater part of what I am thinking escapes me. I cannot grasp the greatness of that one so as to attribute a greater greatness to the rest. When I contemplate the three together, I see but one torch, and cannot divide or measure out the undivided light.” [From Orations 40.41]
