The Word

     The Evangelist, wishing to make clear the ineffable condescension of God, speaks of the flesh, that we may praise His mercy; Since, for our salvation, He took upon Himself that which is so unlike, and so remote, from His own Nature; namely, flesh; for soul has some relationship with God. But if the Word had become Incarnate, yet did not assume a human soul, it would follow that our souls would not yet be healed; for what He did not assume, He did not sanctify.
