The Mystery of Eternal Love:
A Retreat Guide on the Blessed Trinity
According to Pope Benedict XVI, as human beings, we have imprinted upon our spiritual DNA a profound mark of the Trinity, of God as Love, for we are created in the image and likeness of God, and, as the First Letter of John puts it, “God is love.”
But who is this God in whose image we’re created? What difference does it make to say God is a Trinity of Persons? What kind of relationship can we have with the Blessed Trinity? These questions are central to any Christian’s life.
In our latest Retreat Guide on the Blessed Trinity, The Mystery of Eternal Love, we’ll contemplate exactly that.
- In the First Meditation, we’ll consider what the Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches about the Blessed Trinity. We’ll also examine the experience of two friends of God to help guide us deeper into the mystery.
- In the Second Meditation, we’ll look at the response of Abraham, our father in faith, to the “Theophany” at Mamre in the book of Genesis.
- And finally, the Conference will explore Saint John Paul II’s teaching on the Trinitarian shape of prayer, helped by one of the greatest icons in Russian history. We’ll draw out some practical applications for our own lives, as we seek to live in the light of this tremendous mystery of love in whose image we are created.
May God bless you and keep you!
