Item description for Contemplating the Trinity: The Path to the Abundant Christian Life by Raniero Cantalamessa & Marsha Daigle-Williamson, PH.D....
Overview Unity, joy, simplicity, beauty, truth-these are the hallmarks of the three Persons in one God, the Trinity. In Contemplating the Trinity, Fr. Raniero Cantalamessa, the preacher to the papal household, invites readers to turn to the Trinity so that they can enter into and experience the relationship of love that the divine Persons share with one another. Convinced that Christians today need a spirituality that is more clearly trinitarian, Fr. Cantalamessa draws from theology, spirituality, and art to articulate this new perspective and its implications. As readers accept Christ's invitation to immerse themselves in the "bottomless sea without shores" that is the Trinity, they will find themselves on a journey that promises a deeper understanding of how this relationship of love can be our standard for holiness. Features a full-color inset of four famous works of art that depict the Trinity.

Delightful, Insightful and Profound Mar 23, 2007
This is the first book I've read by Fr. Cantalamessa but I intend to read many more. He is well known as the official preacher to the papal household for the last 27 years. One would think in such a position his presentations would be exceedingly conservative and perhaps somewhat stodgy. Instead, they are refreshingly new and insightful. He presents these seven meditations on the Trinity to overcome the unhappiness, divisions, hypocrisy and false beauty of the world, to teach us to pray, build communion and raise our minds to our final destiny. He takes the most profound and ultimate mystery of the Christian faith and leads us to concrete implications of that faith in our everyday life. Immanuel Kant asserted in his Conflict of the Faculties that the doctrine of the Trinity has no practical relevance at all. Had he read Cantalamessa, he might have thought differently. The author is obviously widely read, well informed, and deeply thoughtful, but his presentations are accessible to the general reader. He draws on his various philosophical, theological, literary and artistic sources for quotations and examples that are very apt and appropriate, but wears his learning lightly. He is careful to balance the western church and the eastern so that the strengths of each might supplement the other. This book was a pleasure to read and provided much food for future thought.
