His humbling becomes our example

"He humbled himself, according to the Scriptures, taking on himself the form of a slave. He became like us that we might become like him. The work of the Spirit seeks to transform us by grace into a perfect copy of his humbling."

St. Cyril of Alexandria, Festal Letter, 10:4, on Philippians 2.5-11
