Commentary: The Minor Doxology ("Glory Be"), perhaps derived from Christ's command to the Apostles to baptize "in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit" (Mt. 28:19) has been prayed since the first centuries of Christianity. This hymn of praise to the triune God joins us with the heavenly hosts in glorying God. With the Minor Doxology we also profess, in a formula against the heresies of Arius (who denied the divinity of the Son) and of Macedonius (who denied the divinity of the Holy Spirit), our faith in the most fundamental and the basic mystery of revelation: the mystery of the Holy Trinity.
