The Trinity & The Rule of Three

ImageA Solitary God could not be “love without limits.” A God who made himself twofold, according to a pattern common in mythology, would make himself the root of an evil multiplicity to which he could only put a stop by reabsorbing it into himself. The Three-in-One denotes the perfection of Unity – of ”super unity”, according to Dionysius the Areopagite – fulfilling itself in communion and becoming the source and foundation of all communion. It suggests the perpetual surmounting of contradiction.
