This weekend we celebrate the Feast of the Most Holy Trinity. It is the culmination of what we have been celebrating throughout the liturgical year.
We believe that there are three persons in one God. We call the Trinity a mystery, not because it is something to be solved, but rather it is a reality that cannot be fully comprehended. All we can do is to be in awe, because this one nature “God” has made himself present in our lives in three distinct and different ways. The Father is God, the Son, Jesus Christ is God and the Holy Spirit is God. Not three separate gods but rather being three distinct persons.
The Trinity is a community of love; out of love the Father begets the Son, and the Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father and the Son. Many different religions even some that call themselves “Christians” do not accept this mystery. For many they do not accept it because they do not understand it. We are not called to understand it but rather all of us are called to live it. The Father who created us, the Son who redeemed us and the Holy Spirit who lives within us this is how the Trinity is played out in our lives. We are invited into this community of love, from the moment of our conception to the moment of our entry into eternal joy. We are a people who are loved by a God who surrounds us with his presence and his love.
Has this become a reality in your life? Why not????
I love you!
