TAKEHOMENEWS 26 MAY 2024

The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity


This Sunday is the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity. This mystery tells us that God is One in three Divine Persons, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

In the beginning, God’s Spirit hovered over the waters, and God spoke the Eternal Word, Jesus. Creation came to be by this constant self-gifting communion between the Father and the Son in the Holy Spirit. However, they are three equal Persons in One God. So, God is a communion of Divine Persons and not a solitary being out there.

But this mystery also points to our vocation. We are creatures of a communion of self-gifting love, in whom we are called to live through obedience as Moses tells the people in today’s first reading.

Jesus came to bring us back to this Communion of love through the Holy Spirit by whom we were adopted God’s children (Rm 8:14-17) and baptised in the name of the three Divine Persons as Jesus tells us in today’s Gospel.

Thus, our Christian life is a relationship and encounter with a Personal God and not simply with some energy. So, our faith is about living, mirroring and participating in that Relationship of love which then moves us towards others in a self-giving love. O Lord, help us to imitate in our daily lives this Divine Communion of love. Amen
