SAINT GREGORY OF NYSSA

gregorynyssa

1.  If we truly think of Christ as our source of holiness, we shall refrain from anything wicked or impure in thought or act and thus show ourselves to be worthy bearers of his name. For the quality of holiness is shown not by what we say but by what we do in life.

2.  Concepts create idols; only wonder comprehends anything. People kill one another over idols. Wonder makes us fall to our knees.

3.  May we never risk the life of our souls by being resentful or by bearing grudges.
