The Trinity: Goodness, Gentleness, Sweetness, and Love



Cistercians_webFather, Son and Holy Spirit are names of goodness, names of gentleness, sweetness  and  love. Who  is more  gentle than  the Father, who  so great,  kind  and merciful? Who is dearer  than  Jesus Christ? Our savior is all healing,  all goodness,  gentleness,  sweetness.  Who  is more  loving, dear and holy than  the Holy Spirit? He is the love of the Father and the Son, and by him all who  are made holy receive sanctification.

A twelfth-century Cistercian
