He came into you according to his good pleasure; he came from you as he willed; he came before you, before every thought of the mind, having been generated by God the Father ineffably, immutably, wondrously, impassibly, without corruption, without witnesses, without mediators, without supervisors, unspeakably and divinely.
In heaven without a mother, on earth without a father.

Proclus of Constantinople, Homily IV on the Nativity of the Lord; PG 65, 713-16
