Christian love reflects the Holy Trinity, says Pope

Catholic World News - June 16, 2014

In his Angelus address on Trinity Sunday, Pope Francis said that the life of the Holy Trinity is “a life of profound communion and perfect love, the origin and end of the whole universe and of every creature.”

The Trinity is also “the model of the Church, in which we are called to love one another as Jesus has loved us,” he said. Love is the “concrete sign” that manifests faith in the Trinity. The devil, on the other hand, “is always sowing the tares of hatred; he does not know love, love is of God!”

Christians are thus called to “witness and proclaim” that God “is close to us, he is always by our side, he walks with us to share our joys and our sorrows, our hopes and our struggles.” The person, the family, and the parish in which love is found are each a reflection of the Trinity.

Describing the Eucharist as the “burning bush” in which the Trinity “humbly dwells,” the Pope invited the faithful to the Mass and Eucharistic procession on the Feast of Corpus Christi. “I expect you all this Thursday at 7:00 PM,” he said.
