The Triumph of the Trinity
"He who has my commandments and keeps
them, he it is who loves me; and he who loves
me will be loved by my Father, and I will
love him and manifest myself to him…If a
man loves me, he will keep my word, and my
Father will love him, and we will come to
him and make our home with him" 1
"As the Father has loved me, so have
I loved you; abide in my love. If you keep
my commandments, you will abide in my love,
just as I have kept my Father's commandments
and abide in his love. These things I have
spoken to you, that my joy may be in you,
and that your joy may be full. This is my
commandment, that you love one another as
I have loved you. Greater love has no man
than this, that a man lay down his life for
his friends. You are my friends if you do
what I command you…. when the Counselor comes,
whom I shall send to you from the Father,
even the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from
the Father, he will bear witness to me."2
The Triune Dance
Creator plants His Son, the Word,
Deep in a barren womb -- my heart.
He breathes His Spirit on the Seed.
Love will take hold; New Life will start!
The Living Flame of Love ignites
Within Their midst -- the Divine Three.
Their dance of Perfect Love delights
My soul in its obscurity.
Creator leads the Seraphim
His Will the choreography.
Heaven and earth join in the hymn;
His Word -- my soul's soliloquy!
He transforms my heart's rhapsody
Into His Perfect Harmony --
Heaven's eternal psalmody:
"All praise Triumphant Trinity!"
