PODCAST | The Holy Trinity: An Invitation to Love

[ View Transcript ]

In this podcast, Fr. Donncha Ó hAodha shares a reflection on the Holy Trinity and how we are called to respond to God’s invitation of self-giving and love. He explains that “God, who is all perfect and self-sufficient, has no need of us. But, because he is love, he reaches out and draws us into his divine life, into the Trinity.” Our life, therefore, is transformed through the grace received in baptism which propels us forward to lead a life of love as we seek to be a reflection of Christ in the world today. 

St. Josemaria explains: “We do not exist in order to pursue just any happiness. We have been called to penetrate the intimacy of God’s own life, to know and love God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit and to love also–in that same love of the one God in three divine Persons–the angels and all people” (Christ is Passing By, no. 133).

As you pause and reflect on the mystery of the Holy Trinity, how will you respond to God’s invitation to participate in this relationship of divine Love?
