In all truth I tell you,
by himself the Son can do nothing;
he can only do what he sees the Father doing;
and whatever the Father does the Son does too.

John 5: 19

“Jesus’ obedience means a total, fearless listening to his loving Father. Between the Father and the Son there is only love. . . . This inexhaustible love between the Father and the Son includes and yet transcends all forms of love known to us. . . . It is a caring yet demanding love. It is a supportive yet severe love. It is a love that gives life yet accepts death. . . . This all-embracing love, which epitomizes the relationship between the Father and the Son, is a divine Person, coequal with the Father and the Son. . . . It is called the Holy Spirit. . . . The Spirit is love itself, eternally embracing the Father and the Son.”
