St. Gregory of Nyssa, the Lord's Prayer, the Beatitudes
The two series of homilies presented here are intensely practical, full of examples from the moral, social, medical and scientific life of Gregory's time. They paint a picture of a man thoroughly conversant with human nature in general, and in the needs of his contemporaries.
