The Truth and Divine Love with His Saints


As we saw last Sunday when the fullness of the Undivided Trinity was revealed at Pentecost, the life of the Trinity is the exchange of Divine Love. It is a life of perfect eros and perfect agape; a perfect desire for your beloved and a perfect giving of yourself to your beloved. It is a two-motion act like the beating of a heart; each person perfectly giving himself to the other and perfectly receiving the other.

This is the life of God the Father and God the Son. The Holy Ghost is the Divine Love that binds them together in one Being. The Holy Ghost is the love that binds Father and Son, Christ the Bridegroom and His Bride the Church, and an earthly bridegroom and bride. Everyone is called to participate in the marriage between Christ and His Bride. Only some are called to marriage. Marriage is a reproductive participation in the exchange of Divine Love. Divine Love is the Holy Ghost. Everything else called "marriage" is a lie and a false idol.

Just to participate in the exchange of Divine Love, you must be free from sin and completely reserved for Divine Love. To have any sin is hypocrisy for one who wishes to live in Divine Love. You must be completely reserved for Divine Love. As St. Paul tells the Corinthians, sinners "eat and drink judgement on themselves" (1 Cor 11:29) when they dry to participate in the Divine Life without removing their sins from them. The saints are those who already removed sin from themselves and reserved themselves for Divine Love. They have entered into Divine Love in the union of Christ and His Bride. Despite having sinned, they have washed themselves clean in the Blood of the Lamb and returned themselves to purity; returned to keeping vigil with the wise virgins for the Bridegroom. Let us imitate them and implore their aid for this is the only path to salvation, for there is only one God.
