The Feast of the Most Holy Trinity sums up God's presence in our lives
by Sister Lynne Marie Simonich
“In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit ..." We use these words every time we make the Sign of the Cross. They were also spoken as water was poured over our heads during baptism. What do these words mean to each of us?
As we celebrate the Feast of the Most Holy Trinity, we are reminded of the deep love and unity between our Creator, our Redeemer, and our Sanctifier. Our Creator breathes life into all of creation; our Redeemer shows us the boundless love we are continually offered; our Sanctifier graces us with the gifts of wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, and fear of the Lord ... and so much more. Let us give praise and thanks for all we have been given by our loving God!
Many artists have portrayed images of the Trinity. Do you have a favorite image? What does that image say to you?
On this Father’s Day weekend, may all those in the role of a father feel the loving presence of the Trinity and be blessed with joy and peace
