I believe that from the moment of His conception
in the virginal womb, Jesus Christ was one person, yet having two natures. From
His conception, He was God and Man before birth, during birth and after birth.
I believe and confess that the Most Holy Virgin Mary, after the image of the
bush which burned and was not consumed, truly received the fire of the Godhead
in Herself without being consumed thereby. I believe and confess that She truly
gave of Her own blood and of Her own flesh to the Incarnate Word and that She
fed Him with Her own milk.
I confess that Jesus Christ was, in His Godhead,
begotten of the Father outside of time without assistance of a father. He is without
mother in His divinity, and without father in His manhood.
I believe that through
the Incarnation, the Most Holy Virgin Mary became truly the Theotokos -- the Mother
of God -- in time. She was a Virgin before, during and after birth. Even as Jesus
Christ arose from the dead despite the fact that the Jews had sealed His tomb
with a stone, and even as He entered into the midst of His disciples while the
doors were shut, so also did He pass through the virginal womb without destroying
the virginity of Mary or causing Her the travail of birth. Even as the Red Sea
remained untrodden after the passage of Israel, so also did the Virgin remain
undefiled after giving birth to Emmanuel. She is the gate proclaimed by the Prophet
Ezekiel through which God entered into the world "while remaining shut" (Ezekiel
