So, everyone who has read some of the Church fathers has one, a favorite. Someone whose sermons speak to the heart, whose dogmatic writings are very claryifing, etc. So, who's your favorite Church father?
I'll start: mine is St. Gregory of Nyssa. He can be very funny, has great humility (just read de anima et resurrectione) and his allegorical exegesis always teaches you a lot and he dares to make some controversial statements at times. Plus him always being in the shadow of St. Basil and St. Gregory the Theologian earns him some sympathy as an underdog.
