A communion of love

Yesterday was Trinity Sunday, which is the unofficial feast day for this blog. At the top of the page, I have an icon of the Trinity alongside the name of my blog “The Divine Life: Why We Were Created.” The reason I chose that icon is that the Trinity is our destination, the reason we were created. And what a destination it is! Complete and total Love, eternal and beyond our ability to even imagine. God is a communion of love and we were created to participate in it.
This also means that we were created with the capacity of receiving this divine love. One of the reasons do not feel complete in this life is that we were created for so much more. As St. Augustine wrote, “our hearts are restless until they rest in Thee.” Nothing in this life will satisfy us completely; if we try to find fulfillment with the things of this earth we will end up disappointed. That is why we must direct our lives towards God, knowing that only in Him will fulfillment come.
