“What shall I say! And how shall I describe this birth to you? For this wonder fills me with astonishment.

The Ancient of Days has become an infant. He who sits upon the sublime and heavenly throne now lies in a manger. And he who cannot be touched, who is without complexity, incorporeal, now lies subject to human hands. He who has broken the bonds of sinners is now bound by an infant’s bands.

But he has decreed that ignominy shall become honor, infamy be clothed with glory, and abject humiliation the measure of his goodness.

For this he assumed my body, that I may become capable of his word; taking my flesh, he gives me his spirit; and so he bestowing and I receiving, he prepares for me the treasure of life. He takes my flesh to sanctify me; he gives me his Spirit, that he may save me.”

-St. John Chrysostom
