Trinity Sunday

This weekend we celebrate the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity. What a great blessing three people in one, but a very hard concept to understand.

I recall when I was a child and preparing for First Communion these questions that I have never forgotten:

  1. Is the Father God? Yes, the Father is God.
  2. Is the Son God? Yes, the Son is God.
  3. Is the Holy Spirit God? Yes, the Holy Spirit is God
  4. Do we have three Gods? No, we do not have three Gods, but 3 different people and only one true God.

For all of us this a hard concept to grasp, but in prayer the word that stands out is Faith.

Faith helps us to comprehend, faith helps us to love, faith helps us to understand, that God is a mystery and is perfect in every way.

Nevertheless, we must want to learn and we can ask the Lord to enlighten us, “God is the fullness of Being and of every perfection, without origin and without end. All creatures receive all that they are and have from him. But he alone is his very being, and he is of himself everything that he is” (Catechism of the Catholic Church 1, II, 213).

Lastly, there are many passages where God Trinity reveals himself and his love to us, “After Jesus was baptized, he came up from the water and behold, the heavens were opened [for him], and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove [and] coming upon him. And a voice came from the heavens, saying, “This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.” (Mt 3:16-17)

Therefore, Glory be to the Father, and the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, a world without end. Amen.
