St. Gregory of Nyssa: When God revealed himself, he united with our mortal nature . . .

Icon of St. Gregory of Nyssa“When God revealed himself, he united himself with our mortal nature in order to deify humanity through this close relation with deity. Since this is so, through his flesh, constituted by bread and wine, he implants himself in all believers.”

— St. Gregory of Nyssa, Catechetical Oration
