Trinity Sunday

On the 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.  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.  However, to come to an awareness of our true dignity as children of God demands a great deal of change and conversion on our part.  It requires a basic readiness to let go of everything which binds us to this world.  Because God loves us and wants us to return that love, he offers us a share in his own life.  That demands that we allow the risen Christ to make his home within our hearts.  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 unity 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.
