By becoming flesh, Jesus made us "partakers of the divine nature" (2 Pet 1:4). "The Word became flesh so that man might become a Son of God" (St. Irenaeus). "For the Son of God became man so that we might become God" (St. Athanasius). Jesus "assumed our nature, so that he, made man, might make men gods" (St. Thomas Aquinas)
Do we truly understand what God is offering? But first we must remain in his Love. We must be one with Jesus and the Father. We must be servants of all and become Love itself.

At the Last Supper with his apostles on the eve of his passion Jesus anticipated, that is, both symbolized his free self-offering and made it really present: “This is my Body which is given for you” (Luke 22:19), “This is my Blood which is poured out...” (Matthew 26:28) Thus he both instituted the Eucharist as the “memorial” (1 Corinthians 11:25) of his sacrifice and instituted his apostles as priests of the new covenant.
