The Defining Properties Of The Divine Persons Of The Trinity According To Gregory of Nyssa

-Holy Spirit: "he is known after and with the Son, and...he subsists in procession from the Father [hyphestanai]."

-The Son: "he, through and in himself, reveals the Holy Spirit who proceeds from the Father, and...he, the only begotten one, shines as light from the unbegotten light [from the Father]."

-The Father: "Regarding God the Almighty, it is the unique property of his hypostasis that he is Father, and that his being is entirely uncaused [hypostenai]."
