O Undivided Trinity;

Thou One-In-Three;
Life, Light, and Love
in Perfect Unity;
I Love Thee!
I Love Thee!
I Love Thee!

Inspired by the beautiful vision of Carlo Carretto; (1910-1988), Italian writer, mystic, and member of the Little Brothers of Jesus, who modeled himself upon desert contemplative Charles de Foucauld. Brother Carlo’s understanding of the Holy Trinity resonates deeply with my own. The Father being Life Itself; the Son being the Very Light of All Things; the Spirit being the Activity of Love issuing forth from the Life and Light. “Life has the unbridled force of creation…Light may not remain hidden…Love needs to give of itself.” ~Carlo Carretto, from The God Who Comes, published in 1971.
