                      Glory Be to the Father, also called the Gloria Patri (Latin), is a doxology or a short verse praising
                      God.  It was promoted as a defense against the Arian heresy in the 4th century, but became more
                      widely used throughout the Church in the 7th century. This doxology appears in the Liturgy of the
                      Hours and is often used in extraliturgical services such as the recitation of the Rosary.
