If the Son is “eternally begotten” of the Father, then how can he also be born of Mary?


In the Nicene Creed the Catholic Church asserts that the Son of God is eternally begotten, but you also assert that the Son of God was born of the Virgin Mary. Can you explain how the Son can be begotten twice?
