Reflection on the Incarnation

What man could have raised himself up to the glory of heaven if heaven had not first reached down to his land to embrace and lift him up? The invisible has become visible, the incorporeal has become corporeal, the Lord has become a servant, God has become a victim, the transcendent has been touched. Verily, as Tertullian of old claimed, the flesh of Christ is the hinge of our salvation.

Et  Verbum caro factum est.
