Christ with no father by St. Athanasius of Alexandria

“No one can describe His body generation. No one can point to a father who begot Him in the flesh, because His body did not come from a man, but from the Virgin alone.” 

AthanasiusOn the Incarnation of the Word 37; PG 25, 160; ed. Thomson (Oxford Claredon Press, 1971).

Jesus Christ’s generation and birth are mysteries. As he is God that performs wonders. His wonders still amaze us to this day.

If you are interested in more quotes on Virgin Mary, you can find them in Mary and the Fathers of the Church on Amazon in both in Kindle and paperback formats.
