…judges Francis’ idea on human suffering

  • Jesus is consubstantial, co-omnipotent, and co-equal to the Father through all things in divinity

I believe also that the Son of God the Father, the Word of God, was born eternally before all time from the Father, consubstantial, co-omnipotent, and co-equal to the Father through all things in divinity born of the Holy Spirit from the ever virgin Mary in time, with a rational soul, having two nativities, the one from the Father, eternal, the other from the Mother, in time; having two wills and operations, true God and true man, individual in each nature and perfect. (Denzinger-Hünermann 681. Leo IX, Letter Congratulamur vehementer to Peter, Patriarch of Antioch, April 13, 1053)
