Christian formula known as a doxology, which consists of praises addressed to God at the end of a prayer, a hymn or a sermon. This expression belongs to the rite, ceremonies and Catholic liturgy, and exalts the Holy Trinity (God the Father, the Son, that is Jesus, and the Holy Spirit, often represented by a dove).
