How did this happen?
I came to understand that love was in me, in my mother, and in my father, but that the love was also outside of us. I possessed love of mother and father, my father possessed love of me and my mother, and my mother possessed love of me and my father. We each owned our love separately.
However, the love was also outside of us. It was right in the middle of us. It was in our midst, something invisible but almost touchable.
That is the only way to explain it.
Upon this realization came the realization that the same exists amidst the Three Persons of the Blessed Trinity, and with that, the Holy Ghost became knowable, and my connection to all Three Persons was complete.
God the Father had presented Himself to me when I was 10. I have written a little about that.
God the Son had come in a very different way, over a long period of time. Unlike some patrol officers, I had worked well inside a chain of command and had completed every task given to me by my superior, often with almost no direction, trusting me to figure out what to do in delicate, complex situations.
Only then had I come to know that my heavenly superior, extraterrestrial commander-in-chief, general and brother, had been in charge of me.
If He knocked on the front door and said, “Come with me,” I would not hesitate.
Another good friend at St. Stephen, age 24, told me that waiting for Him is a necessary part of suffering.
Brief, very inadequate explanation of how the Three Persons entered my life.
