St. Gregory of Nyssa on the Mystery of Penance and the Eucharist as steps towards deification

Gregory’s spiritual teaching has been the subject of intensive study since the Second World War. Several writers have seen in Gregory a major exponent of the doctrine of deification, but in fact he appeals to the doctrine less. Deification for the bishop of Nyssa refers primarily to the transformation of the flesh assumed by the Son at the Incarnation (and, by extension, to the operation of the sacraments), and secondarily to man’s participation in the divine perfections. Saint Gregory of Nyssa came to describe the Eucharist as a sacrifice, specifically an unbloody sacrifice. The Eucharistic mystery bears an objective Real Presence. The bread and wine are believed to become the genuine Body and Blood of the Christ Jesus (a mode of thought supported by such verses as John 6, 55) through the operation of the Holy Spirit. The union of divine and human in Christ endowed his flesh with true life.

Keywords: St. Gregory of Nyssa, Penance, Eucharist, deification, the sacramental gift, Church, Incarnation.
