St. Athanasius on the Incarnation of the Word

Today is the feast day of Ss. Athanasius and Cyril, both Patriarchs of Alexandria who contributed greatly to the Orthodox doctrine of the incarnation.

At one and the same time – this is the wonder – as Man He was living a human life, and as Word He was sustaining the life of the universe, and as Son He was in constant union with the Father.

– St. Athanasius, On the Incarnation, 3.17.
