Reflection for Trinity Sunday

On this feast of the Most Holy Trinity we come face to face with the inner mystery of God as a family of persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, where there is complete harmony, love and total peace.  In case anyone is wondering what bearing the mystery of the Trinity has on our lives, it is worth remembering that scripture tells us that we are children of God the Father who cares for us, that in Jesus Christ we have a brother who died for us and that in the Holy Spirit we possess a friend and comforter who strengthens and protects us when we are in danger.  The Trinity is an invitation to discover and deepen the relationship between God and ourselves in the light of what the gospel tells us about his inner life. If we are made in the image and likeness of God then surely we must strive to become like him as much as is humanly possible – because when life is over the fulfilment of our dreams is to be in God’s company and to see him as he really is.  God is the deepest mystery of our lives and is infinitely more expansive than our tiny minds are capable of imaging.  If our behaviour is to mirror the life of the Trinity, then the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit should govern our every word and action.  From the moment we were baptized in the name of the three persons of the trinity, we pledged to live our lives under their protection and do everything in their name so that, when life is over, we shall go to meet them and live in their company forever.   For all this to happen we need to listen to the Spirit inspiring us and drawing us forward in search of the truth.
