Love as an ontological, trinitarian reality




This is beautiful and is from an article worth reading in full:

Love is not an emanation or 'property' of the substance of God ... but is constitutive of his substance, i.e. it is that which makes God what he is, the one God. Thus love ceases to be a qualifying property of being and becomes the supreme ontological predicate. Love as God's mode of existence 'hypostaslzes God, constltutes his being.

Thannks for this. I'm stealing it for the studies I'm writing on the Nicene Creed
