First Day of the Advent Fast, 2020:
We hope to post each weekday a message from the Holy Fathers related to the Incarnation of our Lord, for in this season of preparation for His Nativity, it is beneficial for us to consider the meaning of His Incarnation!
"It is proper for us to begin the treatment of this subject by speaking of the creation of the universe, and of God as its Creator, that so it may be duly perceived that the renewal of creation has been the work of the self-same Word Who made it at the beginning. For it will appear not inconsonant for the Father to have wrought its salvation in Him by Whose means He made it." ("On the Incarnation of the Word," St. Athanasius, 1.Introductory, 4)
