Thought for the Day – 17 November – St Gregory Thaumaturgus “the Wonder-Worker” (c 213-c 270)

“The Creed”
of Saint Gregory Thaumaturgus

There is one God, the Father of the living Word,
who is His subsistent Wisdom and Power and Eternal Image,
perfect Begetter of the perfect Begotten, Father of the only-begotten Son.
There is one Lord, Only of the Only, God of God,
Image and Likeness of Deity, Efficient Word,
Wisdom comprehensive of the constitution of all things
and Power formative of the whole creation,
true Son of true Father, Invisible of Invisible
and Incorruptible of Incorruptible
and Immortal of Immortal
and Eternal of Eternal.
And there is One Holy Spirit,
having His subsistence from God
and being made manifest by the Son,
to wit to men, Image of the Son,
Perfect Image of the Perfect,
Life, the Cause of the living,
Holy Fount,
Sanctity, the Supplier, or Leader, of Sanctification,
in whom is manifested God the Father,
who is above all and in all
and God the Son, who is through all.
There is a perfect Trinity, in glory and eternity and sovereignty,
neither divided nor estranged.
Wherefore there is nothing, either created or in servitude in the Trinity,
nor anything superinduced, as if at some former period it was non-existent
and at some later period it was introduced.
And thus neither was the Son ever wanting to the Father,
nor the Spirit to the Son
but without variation and without change,
the same Trinity abideth ever.

St Gregory Thaumaturgus, Pray for Us! st gregory thaumaturgus pray for us - 17 nov 2018



Passionate Catholic. Being a Catholic is a way of life - a love affair "Religion must be like the air we breathe..."- St John Bosco Prayer is what the world needs combined with the example of our lives which testify to the Light of Christ. This site, which is now using the Traditional Calendar, will mainly concentrate on Daily Prayers, Novenas and the Memorials and Feast Days of our friends in Heaven, the Saints who went before us and the great blessings the Church provides in our Catholic Monthly Devotions. This Site is placed under the Patronage of my many favourite Saints and especially, St Paul. "For the Saints are sent to us by God as so many sermons. We do not use them, it is they who move us and lead us, to where we had not expected to go.” Charles Cardinal Journet (1891-1975) This site adheres to the Catholic Church and all her teachings. PLEASE ADVISE ME OF ANY GLARING TYPOS etc - In June 2021 I lost 95% sight in my left eye and sometimes miss errors. Thank you and I pray all those who visit here will be abundantly blessed. Pax et bonum! πŸ™
