On Christ: Remaining what He was, He assumed what He was not, and though He became man, remained God, in that He was the Word ... thus there is no confusion, but also no separation ..."
On Mary: We are ignorant of many things, as for instance, how the Infinite is in the womb, how He that contains all things is carried, as unborn, by a woman; how the Virgin gives birth and continues as a Virgin.
On the Eucharist: That which is in the chalice is the same as what flowed from the side of Christ. What is the bread? The Body of Christ. Reflect, O Man, what sacrificial flesh (Θυσίά) you take in your hands! To what table you will approach. Remember that you, though dust and ashes, do receive the Blood and Body of Christ.
