Does any one out there contemplate what exactly happened when God came to earth? When the Word put on Flesh and became the Christ? In this season of Christmas, I think it is a good time to reflect on this matter. Where did His flesh come from? How did it work?
I do believe and declare that in fact Jesus (God the Son) was hypostactially united with His flesh in the body of His Mother. I also believe and declare that He Who wills and acts is always the one Hypostasis of the Logos incarnate, and His natures with their proper energies and wills are united hypostatically and naturally without confusion, without change, without division and without separation, and that they are distinguished in thought alone.
Now, having said all THAT theobabble, Hypostatic Union simply means the underlying reality of the Incarnation of God in His flesh. It is God the Word Who is Incarnate.
Almighty God, You have poured upon us the new light of Your Incarnate Word: Grant that this light, enkindled in our hearts, may shine forth in our lives; through Jesus Christ our Lord, Who lives and reigns with You, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever. Amen.
