Saint Gregory of Nazianzus

Gregory the Theologian (Gregory of Nazianzus), by Andrei Rublev (1360s–late 1420s). From Wikipedia.

O God, who hast enlightened thy Church by the teaching of thy servant Gregory Nazianzus: Enrich it evermore, we beseech thee, with thy heavenly grace, and raise up faithful witnesses, who by their life and doctrine may set forth to all men the truth of thy salvation; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

¶ Or this:

Almighty God, who hast revealed to thy Church thine eternal Being of glorious majesty and perfect love as one God in Trinity of Persons: Give us grace that, like thy bishop Gregory of Nazianzus, we may continue stedfast in the confession of this faith, and constant in our worship of thee, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit; who livest and reignest for ever and ever. Amen.
