God so loved the world that he gave his only Son.” (John 3:16-16) The doctrine of the Trinity affirms God as loving and knowing, giving and receiving. We profess that God could not be God without the “other” (the Son) and the eternal bond of their relationship with (the Spirit).
The river of life and love and gratitude flows between the Father and the Son and creates a fire, an energy called the Holy Spirit. To have that flow go through us is to know God. Two of the Trinity love one another; their love becomes the third. The sharing of these three makes one.
“We can only stand in awe-struck silence before such love that is enriched in boldest expectation, beyond all telling.” (Karl Rahner)
“In the name of the Father ..." with us from our beginnings, you so loved the world that you gave your Son.
“And of the Son ..." who came to live among us, your everlasting gift of yourself.
“And of the Holy Spirit ..." with us now in our hearts, always: our soul mate.
Open us to you, O Lord. Help us walk with you and keep your company within your Trinity of love. Make us one in your Holy Spirit. Make love our instinct. Let us be Godly with each other and in you. Amen.
