The Indwelling of the Holy Trinity In the Soul

At the Last Supper when one of His disciples asked Him why He would show Himself to them alone and not to the whole world, (which was how the Jews of the day were expecting the Messiah to manifest Himself), Jesus answered :

“If a man love me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him.”

Our Lord reveals that not only He but the Blessed Trinity itself would be present as in a temple, in the souls of those whole love Him.

This revelation makes up the whole substance of the New Testament, the very heart of Our Lord’s teaching.

God – the Father, Son and Holy Spirit – dwells in our soul in grace not only with a presence of immensity, as He is to be found in everything, but in a special way through sanctifying grace. This new presence fills the soul that travels along the paths of sanctity with love, and with an indescribable joy. It is in the central depths of the soul that we must accustom ourselves to seeking God, in every one of life’s situations.

The good fortune of having the presence of the Blessed Trinity in the soul is not meant only for extraordinary individuals, for people endowed with exceptional charisma or qualities, but for the ordinary Christian who wants to love God.

The substance of our supernatural life is the contemplation and praise of the Blessed Trinity – our joy and our happiness will give eternal praise to the Father, through the Son, in the Holy Spirit.
