The attributes of God, blessed be His name, offer a deep subject for contemplation, presented to us by the Liturgy of St Gregory and the concluding prayer at the end of each hour in the Agpia: Have mercy upon us, O God, have mercy upon us, as we contemplate on: Christ, our good Lord, plenteous in patience, mercy and compassion, who loves the just and shows mercy to all sinners.. We find the same contemplation in the Trisagion, as we say: Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts; the whole earth is full of His glory! (Is 6:3).

Our contemplations on Gods attributes consist of two types: the attributes concerning His relationship to us and the attributes concerning Him only as a God such as the Eternal, the Unlimited, the Creator, the Almighty, the Everlasting.. They are all a field for deep contemplation..
