SOLEMNITY OF THE MOST HOLY TRINITY
God is consistent, reliable, constant, true, and generally, more stable than even the ground we stand on. He is before all things. That he exists, we know because all that exists must be sourced in something eternal. However, we cannot even begin to understand who or what he is. It is said that if we think we have found who God is, or defined him, then we have only found an idol. Whenever we describe him, he is always greater than our description.
That being said, the transcendent God also keeps us in a relationship with him. He reveals things to us, like that he is a Trinity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, yet one God. The Father is the kind ruler of all things. He sent his son into our state of being in order to offer us a share in that divine life. Remember that love means to desire the very best for another, so much so that one is willing to die so that the other may have the best. God has an inexhaustible love for all of us his children. Thus, he sent his Son to us.
Our love for our brothers and sisters joins us in Christ’s work of redemption. God has given us this gift of his divine life, especially when we are at Mass and receive him. And so, this knowledge should give us a little spring in our step as we spread his good news to all we meet. The number one method of evangelization is to enter into the life of the Trinity. Know that you are loved by the Father, offered to him by the Son, and filled with the love of the Holy Spirit. This love will bring you to defend God’s honor, do as he does in trying to bring him to all people, and will give you serenity, even in dark times. That serenity will be really attractive to all you meet, and they will say “I want that serenity also.”
God bless you all,
