HOW WE IMAGE GOD. Gregory of Nyssa

HOW WE IMAGE GOD. Gregory of Nyssa (330-395CE) Sermon on Beatitudes. “There is in you, human beings, a desire to contemplate the true good. …It is indeed within your reach; you have within yourselves the standard by which to apprehend the Divine. For He who makes you did at the same time endows your nature with this wonderful quality. For God imprinted on it the likeness of the glories of His own Nature, as if moulding the form of a carving into wax” (As quoted in Light from Light, Dupre and Wiseman, 44).
