“Though he remains the eternal God, he undergoes the mysteries of the Incarnation while remaining one and undivided; for the One is both and is present in both, that is, in his divinity and in his body. For there is no difference between the One who proceeds from the Father and the One who is born of the Virgin; no, he is the same who comes from the Father in one way and comes from the Virgin in another way.”Ambrose of Milan, De Incarnationis dominicae sacramento 35; PL 16, 862.
God is with us. God is not far from us.
