It might defy explanation but the Trinity doesn't deny us of its life, love & grace
by Sister Lynne Marie Simonich
As we celebrate the Feast of the Most Holy Trinity, we recall the loving relationship of our Creator, Redeemer and Sanctifier … 3 Persons in one God. What a mystery! Every time we make the sign of the cross and pray, “In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit”, we are reminded of that Community of Love. How many times have we made the sign of the cross and said those words? How many times have we heard those words spoken before prayer, at a baptism, etc? We also renew our belief in “one God, the Father almighty … in one Lord Jesus Christ, the only Begotten Son of God … in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life …” whenever we profess the Creed.
Many have tried to explain the Holy Trinity but it remains a mystery. Isn’t it a wonderful mystery to know that God is with us in so many ways as the source of life, the power of love, the wonder of grace? In Sunday's Gospel we receive some of the best news – Jesus tells his disciples and us: “Behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age." May the love of our God, the peace of Jesus, and the joy of the Spirit touch our hearts each day.
