The Most Holy Trinity
True love requires three partners. You remember the old saying “Two’s company, three’s a crowd.” The Trinity shows us that three is community, three is love at its best; three is not a crowd. Each one of us becomes fully human only when we are in relationship with God and in relationship with others. In that way our life becomes Trinitarian like that of God. The doctrine of the Blessed Trinity challenges us to adopt an I-and-God-and-neighbor principle. I am a Christian insofar as I live in a relationship of love with God and other people.
