June 3rd, Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity

St. Bonaventure (1221-1274) says of the Incarnation:

“For you must know that the sublime work of the Incarnation was the work of the whole Trinity, although it was only the Person of the Son of God who became incarnate. It was as if one who put on a tunic were helped by two standing on either side of him who held the tunic in their hands…For although the Holy Trinity is everywhere, nevertheless you must think of It in your meditation as being here in a very special manner, by reason of the great and unique work which is being done.” Meditations On The Life Of Christ

And St. Bernard in a prayer to Mary about the Incarnation says:

“Nor is God the Son alone with you, whom you clothe with your flesh; but also God the Holy Spirit, of whom you conceive; and God the Father, who has begotten that which you conceive.”

John Paul II says:

“In the salvific design of the Most Holy Trinity, the mystery of the Incarnation constitutes the superabundant fulfilment of the promise made by God to man after original sin…” Mother of the Redeemer, 11
