June 02, 2014 – the Indwelling Trinity

In this program Mark and Frances discuss one of the greatest mysteries of the Catholic faith, what is theologically described as the Indwelling Trinity, or the Dogmatic teaching on how the three persons of the Trinity truly reside in the hearts of the faithful. This great mystery was the entire spirituality of a well known Carmelite Nun who went by the name of Elizabeth of the Trinity, currently Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity, though her cause for Sainthood is being examined. Elizabeth is perhaps best known for a prayer she wrote to the Trinity that reflects both her belief in this great blessing, and her petition to each member of the Trinity for the unique gifts they each offer. This prayer is very powerful in providing believers consolation in the midst of trials, and it helps individuals conform their hearts and minds to the will of the Father. For those who pray it consistently, it allows Blessed Elizabeth to fulfill her mission: “I think that in Heaven my mission will be to draw souls by helping them to go out of themselves in order to cling to God by a wholly simple and loving movement, and to keep them in this great silence within which will allow God to communicate Himself to them and to transform them into Himself.”
