Orthodox Thought for the Day

A thought for the 6th day of Christmas

He who was above all creation was in our human condition. The invisible One was made visible in the flesh.  He who is from the heavens and from on high was in the likeness of earthly things. The immaterial One could be touched. He who is free in His own nature came in the form of a slave.

He who blesses all creation became accursed. He who is all righteousness was numbered among the transgressors.

Life itself came in the appearance of death. All this followed because the body which tasted death belonged to no other but to Him who is the Son by Nature.
