Reflection on the Temporal Missions
The temporal missions of the Divine Persons mirror exactly the immanent divine life and origins of the subsisting relations as God does not reveal Himself to be other than He is. If it be objected that the Son is set by the Spirit, one must respond that it is in accordance with His assumed humanity. The Second Person is sent by the One who has charity appropriated of Him as it is by charity that God unites Himself to us. Furthermore, as sanctification is by extension appropriated to the Third Person, the hypostatic union is the principle of our redemption.
