Feast of the Holy Trinity

The Feast of the Holy Trinity reminds us of a simple truth which we often forget – God’s plan is that we share in his life of glory.  By our baptism we are raised to a level at which we become sharers in the family life of God.  We are born of God the Father, God the Son becomes our brother and the love of God is poured into our hearts by the Holy Spirit.  This revelation of his inner life of three persons, in which we have a share, is one of God’s greatest gifts to us and it is the model towards which all of us should aim and strive.  Jesus reveals the mystery of the Trinity to us, not just to let us know the truth about God, but also to know the truth about ourselves ~ as to what is our origin, where is our destiny and how we can arrive at that final point. Every day is a day to love the Father, Son and Holy Spirit so we should strive to make the Holy Trinity a more practical part of our lives. Love is the binding force of the three persons of the Trinity; so, when we love we share in that community of love which is the living God. This celebration of the abundance of God’s love is an occasion for appreciating what God has done and continues to do for us. It calls on us to respond to the love of God, poured into our hearts by Christ and the Holy Spirit, and invites us to look forward to the day when we shall share in the glory of God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
