Default The Trinity and the Fourth Lateran Council

I've just posted a new article about the Trinity here:
http://www.catholicplanet.com/MHT/in...on-Trinity.htm

It is a commentary on the fouth Lateran Council's teaching on the Trinity.

Wow.

Default Very Powerful

That is the best description of the Blessed Trinity that I have ever read. It gives me a renewed intereswt in the 4th Lateran Council.

My book New Insights into the Deposit of Faith contains several chapters on the Trinity, similar to that article but at greater length and will quotes from various Saints.

Christ is present in the Eucharist: His whole human nature (body, blood, soul) and His Divine Nature, united as they always have been since the Incarnation. But since the Divine Nature is the Three Persons, why do we not say that the Father and Spirit are also Incarnate, or that they are also present in the Eucharist? The reason is that the Persons of the Trinity have chosen that the Incarnation (and hence the real presence in the Eucharist) will be of the Second Person, but not of the First and Third Persons, as concerns the Divine Persons distinct from the Divine Nature.
