Fr. Matthew continues his discussion of the liturgy by exploring the meaning of the Nicene Creed. The Creed, he notes, affirms basic beliefs about the nature of the Godhead and each person of the Trinity.
This week he touches on the Father and Son, leaving next week to conclude on the Holy Spirit. He quotes from Evelyn Underhill who reminds us that the role of the Creed in the liturgy is not merely a doctrinal statement, but an act of "adoration, a delightful and grateful remembrance of the splendour," of the Church's faith.
