Incarnation footnote

I looked up that footnote: "These miraculous powers are known as mahima, garima, laghima, prapti, prakamya, ishitva and vashitva. These words denote the faculty of becoming infinitely small, great, heavy, light and obtaining and doing whatever one wishes, and of absolute supremacy AND absolute subjugation."  Hence, what the Greeks say of Christ's kenosis or emptying, the "extreme humility."
