The Son of God made man for us; the Word, begotten of the Father from all
eternity, who took flesh and was born of the
Virgin Mary by the power of the
Holy Ghost; who lived in Galilee and Judæa (Judea), preached the Kingdom of
God, did miracles and founded the Church; who suffered under Pontius Pilate, and
died on the cross, a willing victim for the sins of the world; who was buried
and, on the third day, rose from the dead, and forty days later ascended into
Heaven where he now sits on the right hand of the Father; who also is really and
corporeally present in the
Blessed Sacrament: and is the Way, the Truth and the Life of all Christians
[Catholics]." (Catholic Dictionary)

who is our very life descended into our world, and bore our death, and slew it
with the abundance of His own life. Thundering, He called out to us to return to
Him in heaven." (St. Augustine, Doctor of the Church)
man so that we might be made God; and He manifested Himself in the flesh, so
that we might grasp the idea of the unseen Father; and He endured the insolence
of men, so that we might receive the inheritance of immorality." (St.
Athanasius, Doctor of the Church, c. 318 A.D.)
