+ Gregory of Nazianzus (Bishop, Confessor & Doctor, c.329 – c.389) was the Bishop of Nazianzus and is numbered amongst the Cappadocian Fathers, along with Basil the Great and Gregory of Nyssa.
The son of a bishop suffragan, Gregory was educated at the highly esteemed University of Athens, which would later aid him in defending the Nicene proclamation of Christ’s divinity against Arianism. He subsequently gave up his solitary life as a monk and was ordained priest and later bishop. Gregory is best known for the role he played in shaping the conclusions of the Nicene Creed during the Council of Constantinople in 381. His deep knowledge and love of scripture allowed him to convey through poetic language the ineffable love that exists between the Father, Son and Holy Ghost.Called “the Theologian,” Gregory was given to the Church to teach the faith and guide God’s people in the way of everlasting salvation. (the day’s collect page F 26, People’s Anglican Missal). Pray that God continues to give us learned and holy teachers, so that we do not lose our way in this generation.
