Abstract and Keywords

This article explores the influence of the doctrine of the Trinity on moral life. It explains that the elaboration of all teaching about the Trinity and moral life begins with what is taught about creation and divine exemplar causality. It describes moral life in terms of the creative Trinity and human participation, as the created image of God, in the eternal law—a participation that through grace becomes filial conformity to God the Trinity in truth and charity, whose glorious consummation is sketched in the beatitudes.

Keywords: Trinity, moral life, creation, causality, divine exemplar, human participation, God the Trinity
