Orthodox Spirituality - IX

by Fr. Dr. M. John Panicker

Holy Trinity is the basis of and the Love is the Hallmark of Orthodox Spirituality - 1

The very basis of Christian life is in the mystery of Holy Trinity and Incarnation. Orthodox spirituality has as a basic conviction on the existence of a personal God, who is incarnated and who is the supreme source of radiating love.

God prizes man and does not want to confuse him/her with Himself, but maintains and raises him to an eternal dialogue of love.

But the personal God, the supreme source of love, can’t be conceived of as a single person, but as a community of persons in a perfect unity. The God of the New Testament and of the holy Fathers is living and irreducibly three in one the Holy Trinity.
