Augustine For Today

January 2 – Saints Basil the Great & Gregory Nazianzen

“When we say Jesus was born of a virgin, it’s a great thing, you’re astonished. He’s God, don’t be astonished; let astonishment give way to thanksgiving and praise. Let faith be present; believe that it happened. If you don’t believe, it still happened, but you remain unbelieving. He agreed to become man; what more do you want? Hasn’t God humbled himself enough for you? The one who was God has become man.”

Sermon 189, 4
