Holy Fathers

First_Council_Of_Nicea

Today we celebrate the annual memory of the God-bearing Fathers who assembled in Nicea.

They laid low the godless doctrines of Arius, driving him from the unity of the Catholic Church, and teaching us how to confess the consubstantial and co-eternal Son of God.

They expressed this clearly in the Symbol of Faith, and we follow their divine doctrines, believing in and serving the Son with the Father and the all-Holy Spirit, the consubstantial Trinity and one Divinity.
