The Holy Spirit in the Trinity
The Father loves the Son and the Son loves the Father. Love is not in one alone; love is not in the other. The love that we have for one another is not just in me and not just in you. Love is always a bond between two or among several. That is why even lovers will speak of our love, something outside of the lovers themselves. So love is not in the Father, love is not in the Son, love is the mysterious bond uniting both. Because we are here dealing with the infinite, that divine love is so deep, so profound that it cannot express itself by canticles, words, or embraces. It can express itself only by that which signifies the fullness arid exhaustion of all giving, namely, a sigh. Something that’s too deep for words. That is why the bond of love between the Father and the Son is called the Holy Breath, the Holy Spirit. As the three angles of the triangle do not make three triangles, but one, so there are three Persons or three relationships in God, but only one God.
