Pope Benedict: Follow the example of the Trinity

leave a comment »

At yesterday’s general audience Pope Benedict XVI reflected on the theologies of the 12th-century monks Hugh of St Victor and Richard of St Victor.

He said:

Dear friends, authors such as Hugh and Richard of St Victor raise our soul to the contemplation of divine realities. At the same time, the immense joy we get from thought, admiration and praise of the Most Holy Trinity, establishes and sustains the concrete commitment to inspire us in that perfect model of communion and love to build our everyday human relations.

The Trinity is truly perfect communion! How the world would change if in families, in parishes and in all other communities relationships were lived following always the example of the three Divine Persons, where each one lives not only with the other, but for the other and in the other!
