Very Flesh, yet Spirit too;
Uncreated, and yet born;
God-and-Man in One agreed,
Fruit of God and Maryâs seed;
At once impassible and torn
By pain and suffering here below:
Jesus Christ, whom as our Lord we know.
- St. Ignatius to Ephesians
Undeniably great is the mystery of devotion,
Who was manifested in the flesh,
vindicated in the spirit,
seen by angels,
proclaimed to the Gentiles,
believed in throughout the world,
taken up in glory.
- St. Paul's first letter to Timothy
In these last days, he spoke to us through a son,
whom he made heir of all things and through whom he created the universe,
who is the refulgence of his glory,
the very imprint of his being,
and who sustains all things by his mighty word.
When he had accomplished purification from sins,
he took his seat at the right hand of the Majesty on high,
as far superior to the angels
as the name he has inherited is more excellent then theirs.
- The Letter to the Hebrews
