A Trinitarian structure in love

On my view, love has a three-fold structure:

  • benevolence
  • appreciation
  • union.

This three-fold structure has certain Trinitarian parallels. The Father is the benefactor: he gives being to the Son and thereby to the Holy Spirit. The Son admires the Father, is the Logos that reflects upon the Father’s goodness. The Holy Spirit unites the Father and the Son.
