Today we celebrate Trinity Sunday. We often begin mass with the priest saying “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with all of you.” There must be a reason why God revealed Himself as a Trinity, a communion of persons instead of just the monotheistic God of Israel.
And there are strong words in today’s Gospel that compel us to believe Jesus is the Son of God.
The homilist reminds us this week on what’s a good way to approach the Trinity in prayer. He says, when we are in a state of awe at the immensity of the universe, the world, the beauty of creation etc we can focus our worship to God the Father.
When we are feeling down and out or discouraged due to life’s challenges, we can seek solace and refuge in Jesus his Son. He is also likened to our brother and friend in many Holy reflections.
And when we need the help of the divine, we seek the Holy Spirit to strengthen us in battle to do God’s will in our daily lives. We ask Him to empower us and guide us with wisdom so that our lives give glory to God.
I pray that God will bless you, in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
