This article explores the relevance of the doctrine of the Trinity for discussions about globalization and postmodern theories of culture. It suggests that Trinitarian love infuses culture with a self-giving and teleological order that overcomes the ongoing mechanization and monetization of culture. It cites Pope John Paul II's theology of marriage and the family as an example of this renewal through self-giving love.

Keywords: Trinity; globalization; theories of culture; Trinitarian love; Pope John Paul II; marriage; family; self-giving love
