Since he is love, God is a trinity, that is, he has generated a person worthy and able to love in the same way, and who is infinite: he generated a Son, binding himself to him with a third person, who is the Holy Spirit. If God was exclusively Strength, Honour, or Awe, he would have remained a sole person and would not have generated a Son, or accomplished a creation. He would be closed in himself and would not have opened up. But Christian love is Trinitarian. It is a circle which postulates three points: Father, Son and Holy Spirit; I – my brother – God, and Father – Mother – Son.
Aldous Huxley wrote - even civil progress is a progress in love, and that is, a progress towards God, a climb from the earth to heaven. It is an endeavour to give a divine soul to society, making the members participate in the divine nature. We progress inasmuch as we love, that is, life grows, freeing us from deadly bonds.
All of the «new» commandments are enclosed here, very simple, yet very difficult.
Now this love operates like a fire that cleanses the soul of all the debris and liberates the divine in it, in order to rise like an antenna to capture in the universe, God. Sanctity sought in this manner is proportional to our capacity to receive the Spirit of the Lord and retransmit it to mankind.
