Augustine of Hippo



We believe that Christ was born of the Virgin Mary because it is written thus in the Gospel; we believe that he was crucified and died, because it is written thus in the Gospel; and we believe that he was truly born and truly died because the Gospel is the truth. Just why he willed to subject himself to all the weaknesses of the flesh he assumed in the womb of a woman is a hidden design, known to him alone.
(cited in Gambero, 220)

faith and worship

Fides autem catholica haec est:
ut unum Deum in Trinitate,
et Trinitatem in unitate veneremur.

And the catholic faith is this,
that we worship one God in Trinity
and Trinity in unity.

- from The Athanasian Creed
