The Family as an Image of the Trinity in Aquinas

You are invited to attend our next monthly meeting to be held on Friday, May 12th from 3:00pm to 4:30pm. We will be discussing The Family as an Image of the Trinity in Aquinas by Michael Joseph Higgins from the Summer 2022 issue entitled Marriage and Family (Volume 49.2).

Here is an excerpt from the Introduction to the issue:
In “The Family as an Image of the Trinity in Aquinas,” Michael Joseph Higgins presents Thomas’s rejection of a familial image for the Trinity as more nuanced than many commentators have recognized. Indeed, Higgins argues that Thomas’s understanding of the “psychological image” and his theology of the eternal procession of the Son from the Father can bolster in significant ways an account of the family as imago Trinitatis that we find, for instance, in the teaching of John Paul II. “We image God,” Higgins affirms in light of Thomas, “insofar as we give and receive existence in begetting and in being-born.”

We will meet in the Kateri Room located at St. Michael’s Church, 240 Hemlock Street, Waterloo, Ontario. Use the east side parking lot and enter by the rear doors. Walk up the stairs. The Kateri Room is on your right before you enter the church proper.
