“And when Jesus was baptized, He went up immediately from the water, and behold the heavens were opened and He saw the Spirit of God  descending like a dove, and alighting on Him; and lo a voice saying: ‘This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased'” (Mt 3:16-17).

“The echoless abyss of the Father is the Womb that gives birth to the Word.

Understanding Himself in the Holy Spirit who alone can fathom the divine abyss

the Father expresses himself perfectly in the one eternal Word.

In this self-understanding he finds himself as it were in his Word.

The word understands himself in the very self-understanding of the Father,

for love and understanding are one in the Holy Spirit.

In this Holy Spirit, then, the Son gives himself totally back to the Father,

so that God is not only giver, but gift and thanksgiving.

The Greek Fathers called this tremendous dynamism:

~~~ The Round Dance of the Trinity. ~~~

And we, out of the stupendous generosity of God

are invited to join in this dance wherever we may be”
