We might not understand the Holy Trinity but we can trust in its blessings
by Sister Lynne Marie Simonich
The Most Holy Trinity – who can explain the Trinity? Who can understand the Trinity? Our readings for this great feast don’t answer those questions but do give us a glimpse of the ways God interacts with us.
In our reading from Exodus, God states His name – “Lord” – who is “merciful, gracious, slow to anger, rich in kindness and fidelity”. Our Gospel passage from John describes Jesus as the “beloved Son” sent into the world. St. Paul’s farewell to the Corinthians refers to Jesus who “graces” us, God who “loves” us, and the Holy Spirit who brings us together in community. How blessed we are to have the Trinity where we find love, mercy, grace, kindness and much more!
How would you describe the Trinity?
Slowly make the “Sign of the Cross” and remember that God is with us every moment of our lives.
