“ Christ assumed, not some thing resembling flesh, but the reality of our flesh: a true body.”

Ambrose of Milan, De sacramentis 1, 17; PL 16, 440.

Anyone deny Christ the man does not believe in Him. He died on the cross, his blood was shed, he shed tears, and he got hungry. All of these attributes of human beings. Our Christ is God living with us; he shares our joys and sorrows.
