Quote of the day!

“But when the evangelist says, ‘the Word became flesh and dwelt among us’ (John 1:14), and the Apostle says, ‘in Christ God was reconciling the world to himself’ (2 Cor. 5:19), we see that the only-begotten of the Most High Father united himself with human humility in such a way that, when he took the substance of our flesh and soul, he remained the very same Son of God by exalting our properties, not his own. It was the weakness, not the power, that had to be reinforced, so that when the creature was united with the Creator, there would be nothing missing of the divine to the flesh he assumed, nor of the human to the One who assumed it.”

St. Gregory the Great

“And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for you: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.” (2 Cor. 12:9)
