Description

The Gloria Patri has been prayed from the beginnings of Christianity. In this one-sentence prayer, time and eternity are combined in a compressed expression of doxology, praise of God. In this brief but comprehensive book, Father Ayo examines the riches in this prayer: the philological, historical, and theological origins of Christian prayer itself, and the profound spiritual implications of the Gloria Patri.

At the heart of Christian prayer and at the heart of Christian liturgy we always find worship, honor, and praise of God as revealed in Jesus Christ. In Gloria Patri, Father Ayo examines the lesser doxology word by word, in both its various translations and the history of their combination and controversies. He adds to that an exploration of the boundless meanings of praise of the Triune God it encompasses. After reading Gloria Patri, no one can again take for granted this humble sentence.

Preface
In this book I intend to explore a short, familiar, but little re-flected upon prayer—the “Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever.” Along with the Lord’s Prayer and the Hail Mary, the so-1 called lesser doxology may be the most recited prayer in Chris-tian devotion. Comprising the first three chapters, part one will give back-ground and foundation—linguistic, theological, and historical— for understanding the lesser doxology as a prayer. In the first chap-ter I will introduce doxology as a recognition of the mystery of God. In the second chapter I will explain what the first word of the Gloria Patri implies. Amply understood, “glory” (to God) con-tains the whole prayer. A linguistic analysis of the Greek word doxa,which in English is rendered “glory,” will be given. A theo-logical explanation of glory will complement the verbal analy-sis. In the third chapter I will outline the history of the lesser dox-ology. I will explain how it has been elaborated and modified in its wording and its usage in the liturgy throughout the centuries from the beginnings of Christianity.
