Gregory of Nazianzen in the AM

Just, you know, a little brilliance to start the day:

Recognize to whom you owe the fact that you exist, that you breathe, that you understand, that you are wise, and, above all, that you know God and hope for the kingdom of heaven and the vision of glory, now darkly as in a mirror but then with greater fullness and purity. You have been made a son of God, co-heir with Christ. Where did you get all this, and from whom?

Gregory of Nazianzen, Oratio 14, #23 (Office of Readings)
