The source from which all St. Arnold’s spirituality flows is his devotion to the Most Blessed Trinity, the most unfathomable mystery of our faith.
His every thought and effort and undertaking converged on this truth: All must serve the Triune God; all must be conquered for the Trinity; all must be done in Its name; all hearts must become Its abode; all men must come to know and love and adore the Triune God: our guardian angel must do homage to this God dwelling in our hearts!
To pray in the spirit of Father Arnold, we must make frequent use of these aspirations: “May the holy Triune God live in our hearts!” (The Spirituality of the Founder, p.8)
