Remaining what He was
– As God He has a Divine Father
but no divine mother.
He became what He was not
– As Man He has a human mother
but no human father.
All of this was only possible because,
Mary, remaining what she was,
becomes what she was not,
Remaining what you are (human)
You become what you are not (Divine).
For you have become partakers in the Divine Nature (2 Pt. 1:4).
As the catechism of the Catholic Church teaches
the Son of God became man so that we might become God (CCC #460).
In the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, at the preparation of the Chalice,
the priest or deacon prays:
By the mingling of this water and wine
May we come to share in the Divinity of Christ
Who humbled Himself to share in our humanity.
Ever Virgin – Mother of God
Pray for us!
