THE SILVER SERIES, VOLUME 8
"The faith of the early Christians was a Trinitarian faith in the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The Son became incarnate and therefore, as a man, submitted to the Father and to the Spirit. But as God, He is one with the Father and the Spirit. But as God, He is one with the Father and the Spirit. The seeds of every baptismal confession of faith- ultimately coming to full expression in the Creed- are observable already in these earliest years of the Church."
"Belief in the incarnate God is at the very center of our faith. God is our Savior because He has truly visited us, because He has truly entered into the flesh of this world. Whenever we deny the reality of the Incarnation, the reality of Christ's suffering and death in His own flesh, we are ultimately denying the reality of our salvation, because we exist in the flesh."
