Prologue   A[1]   A[2]   A[3]   A[4]   A[5]   A[6]   A[7]   A[8]  

We next consider the mission of the divine persons, concerning which there are eight points of inquiry:

A[1] Whether it is suitable for a divine person to be sent?

A[2] Whether mission is eternal, or only temporal?

A[3] In what sense a divine person is invisibly sent?

A[4] Whether it is fitting that each person be sent?

A[5] Whether both the Son and the Holy Ghost are invisibly sent?

A[6] To whom the invisible mission is directed?

A[7] Of the visible mission

A[8] Whether any person sends Himself visibly or invisibly?
