Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity

God is Trinity. God is love

Dear brothers and sisters, Fiat!

Today is the Sunday of the Most Holy Trinity. We experience the joy and amazement of faith: we recognize that God is not something vague, He is tangible; He is not abstract, “God is love”. His love  is not a sentimental, emotional kind of love but the love of the Father who is the origin of all life, the love of the Son who dies on the Cross and is raised, the love of the Spirit who renews human beings and the world. Thinking that God is love does us so much good, because it teaches us to love, to give ourselves to others as Jesus gave himself to us.

The Most Holy Trinity is not the product of human reasoning but the face with which God actually revealed himself, not from the heights of a throne, but walking with humanity. It is Jesus himself who revealed the Father to us and who promised us the Holy Spirit. God walked with his people in the history of the People of Israel and Jesus has always walked with us and promised us the Holy Spirit who is fire, who teaches us everything we do not know and from within us guides us, gives us good ideas and good inspirations.

The Trinity is the communion of Divine Persons who are one with the others, one for the others, one in the others: this communion is the life of God, the mystery of the love of the Living God. Jesus revealed this mystery to us. He spoke to us of God as the Father; He spoke to us of the Spirit; and He spoke to us of Himself as the Son of God. Thus He revealed this mystery to us. After He rose, He sent the disciples to evangelize to the peoples, He told them to baptize them “in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” (Mt 28:19). This command is entrusted by Christ in all ages to the Church, which has inherited the missionary mandate from the Apostles. He also directs it to each one of us who, through the power of Baptism, are part of his Community.

We are called to live not as one without the others, above or against the others, but one with the others, for the others, and in the others. This means to accept and witness in harmony the beauty of the Gospel; experiencing love for one another and for all, sharing joy and suffering, learning to ask and grant forgiveness, appreciating various charisms under the guidance of Pastors. In a word, we have been entrusted with the task of edifying ecclesial communities which increasingly become families, capable of reflecting the splendour of the Trinity and evangelizing not only with the words but with the power of the love of God that lives within us.

We also recognize in the Trinity the model for the Church, in which we are called to love each other as Jesus loved us. And love is the concrete sign that demonstrates faith in God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. And love is the badge of the Christian, as Jesus told us: “By this all men will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another”

Today we do not praise God for a specific mystery, but for himself, “for his immense glory”, as the liturgical hymn says. We praise him and we thank him because he is Love, and because he calls us to enter into the embrace of his communion which is eternal life.

We remember it, each time we make the sign of the Cross: in the name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

On October 19, 1937 Jesus explained to Luisa how the Divine Will forms the Most Holy Trinity in the creature who lives in It. The Divine Will fecundates and sows Divine Life within the souls. Where It reigns with Its creative Power, Its Motion and Its Word, It speaks in the works, in the steps, in the mind, in the breathing.... Wanting to establish Its Kingdom, the Divine Will speaks in order to create Its Divine Life in each one of the acts of the creature. Therefore, it takes the greatest attention to sense where It wants to begin Its teachings.

By the power of Its word, It  invests the human act - the breathing, the heartbeat, the thinking and the human word; and forms within it, Its Divine Work - the Breathing, the Heartbeat, the Thinking and the Divine Word. These acts rise up to Heaven and present themselves before the Most Holy Trinity. The Divinity looks at them, and what do They find? They find Themselves, Their Life and even the Most Holy Trinity reproduced in these acts. God looks at the prodigy of His Will which overwhelmed the creature with Its Power, making of her the repetition of His own Life. Oh, how happy, how enraptured He remains, because He finds in her the Sanctity that resembles Him, His Love that loves Him, the Intelligence that understands Him, His Power and Goodness which move Him to love mankind through the bonds of our sweetness. God recognizes Himself in her, finding the Work of Creation as He wants It to be.

A single one of these acts contains such wonders that they just can’t find enough room in which to place themselves, such is their greatness. Only in God’s immensity can they find the place in which to stay, remaining fused with His acts. If all knew what it means to live in the Divine Will, to let It reign, they would compete with each other to be invested by It and become repeaters of Divine Life.

True Love, when It is perfect, begins from oneself. The true model is the Most Holy Trinity. The  Celestial Father loved Himself, and in His Love He generated His Son; so He loved Himself in His Son. Jesus, His Son, loved Himself in the Father, and from this Love the Holy Spirit proceeded. By this loving of Himself, the Heavenly Father generated one single Love, one single Power, Sanctity, and so forth. He tied the inseparable union of the Three Divine Persons

When God created the Creation He loved Himself. He loved Himself in laying Heaven and in creating the sun; it was the Love for Himself  that moved God to create many beautiful things worthy of Him and inseparable from Him. When He created man the Love of Himself became more intense, and as He loved Himself in him His Love reproduced His Life and image in the depth of his soul. One can give nothing other than what he possesses. So, since God’s Love was perfect, as God loved Himself, He could not separate Himself from what was coming from within Him.

Now, the Divine Will, in wanting the creature to live in It in order to form Its Kingdom, loves Itself, and loving Itself, wants to give what It possesses. The Divine Will is happy only when It forms the repetition of God’s Life, and when It operates in the acts of the creature. Then, triumphant and victorious, and with highest glory and honor for God, It brings them into the divine womb, so that God may recognize His own Life in the acts of the creature who lives in the Divine Will. This is the meaning of loving Itself in all that It wants to do and produce: giving Itself in order to form another being similar to Itself (God).

The Divine Will is the fecundator and the sower of the divine Life. Where It finds souls disposed It loves Itself, fecundating them with Its Love - sowing in them Its divine acts, which, united together, form the great prodigy of the Divine Life in the creature.
