Circle of Glory

Do you see the circle of glory revolving among those who are alike? The Son is glorified by the Spirit; the Father is glorified by the Son; again the Son has his glory from the father and the only-begotten thus becomes the glory of the Spirit. For with what shall the Father be glorified but with the true glory of the Son, and with what shall the Son be glorified but with the majesty of the Spirit?

Gregory of Nyssa, On the Holy Spirit (cited by Anatolios, Retrieving Nicaea, 209)
