TRINITY IN SCIENCE AND SPIRITUALITY

A pithy summary of a CAC week of reflections on relationships within earth’s evolving integrity. A valuable reflection as we seek collaboration in achieving a critical mass capable of affecting profound change in the structuring of human society.…………
Richard Rohr: “Recognizing Trinity as relationship itself opens conversations with the world of science. This surprising insight names everything correctly at the core—from atoms, to ecosystems, to galaxies. The shape of God is the shape of everything in the universe!
When we try to understand Jesus outside the dynamism of the Trinity, we do not do him or ourselves any favors. Jesus never operated as an independent “I” but only as a “thou” in relationship to his Father and the Holy Spirit. God is love, which means relationship itself.
-We can think of the Holy Spirit as our interior homing device—that for all our stupidity and mistakes there is this deep internal intuition that we are the sons and daughters of God. No matter how lost we get, it keeps pointing us back “home”—to love, to connection, to meaningful relationship with Someone or something else, to soul.  The Trinity is infinite outpouring and infinite infilling without end. It can only be experienced as a flow, as a community, as a relationship, as an inherent connection.”

Pope Francis; “The human person grows more, matures more and is sanctified more to the extent that he or she enters into relationships, going out from themselves to live in communion with God, with others and with all creatures. In this way, they make their own that trinitarian dynamism which God imprinted in them when they were created.”

Elizabeth Johnson. “Wherever the human heart is healed, justice gains a foothold, peace holds sway, an ecological habitat is protected, there the human and earth community already reflect in fragments, the visage of the trinitarian God.” 

Peter
