What’s the Correct Way to Understand the Incarnation?


What an excellent question! I sincerely mean this. I am not being sly or rude.


We’ve given you a few clues already, if you’ve read all of the answers to the questions in Understanding Christ up till this one. But we’ll add a few things that are well worth knowing.


God’s Mother, the Blessed Virgin Mary, was conceived & born without stain of sin, nor did She ever sin Her Entire Life here on earth. This is so She wouldn’t pass on what Catholics call ‘Original Sin’ to Her Divine Son, Jesus Christ, staining Him with sin at His Conception & Birth. By the way, when Roman Catholics say She’s the ‘Mother of God’, we’re not saying that She is God --- She’s a Creature.


Yet She is the Greatest Creature that God has ever made, and, when God chose Her to be His Son’s Mother, She gave Birth to a Real Person, not just a ‘body’. So She really is the Mother of God, by God’s Own Choice. And the Holy Ghost, the Third Person of the Trinity, miraculously put Jesus in Her Womb.


This happened when St. Gabriel the Archangel appeared to Her, telling Her what God would do, and, replying humbly, She said, “Behold the handmaid of the Lord; be it done to me according to thy word.” (Luke 1:38 DRC) At that moment, the Anointed One, Jesus Christ, began living in Her Holy Womb.
