Wisdom on Wednesdays—The Divine Trinity and the human trinity

“Man is made in the image of God.  Hence, the mystery of the most Holy Trinity is at the basis of the mystery of man.  Hence, man, like God, is triune: he is family; he is an individual person; he is society.  When the human trinity is severed from the Divine Trinity it cannot long remain neutral: it will soon serve evil if it does not consciously serve God.”  (1942)
