The Feast of the Most Holy Trinity

Our world is filled with mysteries.  The most wondrous thing in the world is the mysterious.  Our life is a faint tracing on the surface of mystery.  We live with mysteries very comfortably.  Today’s feast of the most Holy Trinity celebrates the mystery of three persons in the one God, all bonded together by love.  It fills us with awe and open-eyed reverence, for we do not have a God whose limits we can define.  In the Trinity our minds are brought into loving contact with the complexity and wonder of God.  His greatness and goodness exceed the boundary of all thought and are beyond our human attempts to comprehend.  Trinity Sunday brings home to us how intimate and personal God’s love is for us.  It shows God taking an interest in every individual, as Father, redeemer and spiritual guide.  After all our attempts to express wonder at the immensity of the mystery of God, who is just merciful, far and yet near, completely other and different from us yet loving and caring, we rightfully acknowledge that words are a poor substitute for worship and contemplation.  On this feast we pray  the simplest of Christian prayers : “Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be, world without end.  Amen.”
