..the two unmingled and perfect natures are most fittingly set in the single Person of the Lord Christ. By one of these He reigns, and by the other He serves. The first is Creator, the second the created; and thus the nature which did the embracing experiences no feeling, whereas that which was embraced does experience feeling. As the Fathers warn us, we must allot the injuries to His flesh, the miracles to His divinity. Let us distinguish the natures with understanding, and avoid harmful errors. His divinity united His humanity with itself in such a way that it can in no sense be mingled with it, for each nature remains unmingled yet united.
