Tim Cronin's Post on Benedict XVI's Metaphysics of Relation

2B=2B4 (To Be = To Be "For" [the Other])

"In a certain way the 'name' of the Holy Trinity is engraved on everything that exists, because all being, down to the smallest particle, exists in relation to others". -Pope Benedict XVI Feast of the Holy Trinity 2009 The Trinity is absolute unity insofar as the three divine Persons are pure relationality. -Caritas in Veritate 2009

The Church rejected this conception of love as involuntary emotion or passion, and insisted instead that the phrase 'God is love' means that God is constituted by these personal relationships. God is communion: love is fundamental to his being, not an addition to it. -Zizioulas Lessons in Christian Dogmatics
