Gregory of Nyssa: His objective

Sunday, July 24, 2011
    Commemoration of Thomas à Kempis, priest, spiritual writer, 1471
    And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.
    —John 1:14 (KJV)
    He who exists eternally did not submit to a bodily birth because He wanted to live, but in order to recall us from death to life.
    ... St. Gregory of Nyssa (331?-396?), oratio catechetica (magna) 32, quoted in The Later Christian Fathers, Henry Scowcroft Bettenson, London: Oxford University Press, 1970, p. 146 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have called us to a life like Yours.
