  2. While good, I think this summary of the One True Faith episode “Protestant Errors” is better:

    Hi Kyle,
    No one has answered you yet I see, so I’ll have a go! 🙂

    If you have a Catechism of the Catholic Church you can read on from no.471 and following for a good clear explanation of the “Hypostatic Union”.

    This is how the Catholic Encyclopedia describes it:
    A theological term used with reference to the Incarnation to express the revealed truth that in Christ one person subsists in two natures, the Divine and the human. Hypostasis means, literally, that which lies beneath as basis or foundation. Hence it came to be used by the Greek philosophers to denote reality as distinguished from appearances (Aristotle, “Mund.”, IV, 21). It occurs also in St. Paul’s Epistles (2 Corinthians 9:4; 11:17; Hebrews 1:3-3:14), but not in the sense of person. Previous to the Council of Nicæa (325) hypostasis was synonymous with ousia, and even St. Augustine (On the Holy Trinity V.8) avers that he sees no difference between them. The distinction in fact was brought about gradually in the course of the controversies to which the Christological heresies gave rise, and was definitively established by the Council of Chalcedon (451), which declared that in Christ the two natures, each retaining its own properties, are united in one subsistence and one person (eis en prosopon kai mian hpostasin) (Denzinger, ed. Bannwart, 148). They are not joined in a moral or accidental union (Nestorius), nor commingled (Eutyches), and nevertheless they are substantially united.”

    Hope this helps.

    …hypo: under stasis: not varied unchanging …God who is limitless and immutable united hhimself with his creation in a perfect motion of humility.. hypodermic: beneath the skin hypomorphic: in the form of a variant or something changed…..to appear in a hypostatic state God has combined perfectly the aspects of form and function…..it seems to frustrate the logical mind that God who is unchanging should as man commit to any form of life or death…God is above both life and death…the supereventual nothingness….yet through the yes of Mary( an affirmation)>>>God has raised all creation through free affirmation to the potentiaion of a state of hypostasis…under neath the aspect of never changing…ceaseless life… what more can you say>???….in other words God stoops to conquer

    I know several Catholics, unfortunately, who believe that a Protestant faith is just as good as the Catholic faith 😦 I had one say to me that “There isn’t any difference except that we believe that Communion is really Jesus and they don’t”. This was a fellow Knight of Columbus, and at that moment I stood my ground defending the Catholic faith. I also had to defend the teachings on marriage, and divorce, against my brother Knight.

    I’ve had other Catholics say that, about contraception and confession, “Oh I don’t believe in that”, and my wife had an elderly Catholic lady say to her, “I don’t like abortion, but I don’t think the Church has the right to tell women no…” Etc.

    It can be pretty tiring standing up for the faith, and doing our best to correct Catholic teachings, including the truth about the Protestant heresy 😦

    From my last comment – I’ve had other Catholics say that, about contraception and confession, “Oh I don’t believe in that”

    Meant to say that I’ve had Catholics say they disagree with the Churches teachings on contraception and confession.

    …as i read once where one victim soul claimed we are as keeper’s of the faith all responsible for the sanctity of those we come in contact with through the provision of a good moral and virtuous way of life as an example for others…when people say i dont believe in this or that i just say if you believe the church as an institution set up by God through the action of the Holy Spirit is in error then these subjective judgements are incorrect since God would not lead us away from truth…if they say men have misconstrued God’s edicts then we can say we are all hypocrits and the church is unneccesary…..that is great that you have the courage to be resolute and incorporate some spiritual acts of mercy into your day to day way of the cross..to counsel the doubtful and instruct the ignorant…the spiritual extension of the mystical body of Christ through protestant spiritual communion can also bear fruit however not nearly as abundantly as a free and clear participation in the substantiation through a good sacramental communion…that is why Jesus said we are workers in the vineyard…the ones who come later all receive the same wage…so we should not grudge over our toil… 🙂
