“He was made man, not in appearance only or as a phantasm, but in a real way. He did not pass through the Virgin, as if through a channel; rather, he truly took flesh from her and by her was truly nursed, really eating and really drinking just as we do.”

Cyril of Jerusalem, Catecheses 465 B-468 A.
