Dear Brothers and Sister,
Today as we celebrate Trinity Sunday, let us do so with gratitude to God for revealing himself to us as our Father, Savior and Lover. Yes, it is God who reveals himself to us as the One God who is with us and in us. That God is Three Persons in the One Godhead. The Trinity therefore is not given to us to confuse us. These three are present to us to assure us that our God will never leave us nor forsake us.
The whole of the Bible is a record of that God being with his people. When at the very beginning of creation our First Parents sinned and hid from him, we read God “The man and the woman heard the sound of God walking in the cool of the day and they hid from God among the trees of the garden. But God called to the man…” From that moment to the very last verse in the Bible we see God looking for and being with his People.
The Trinity is such that most if not all of our prayers address the Father, Son and Holy Spirit which together we call the Trinity. In fact we repeat the words so often that we sometimes are unconscious that we are conversing with the Most Holy Trinity. In addition, what is called the doxology is prayed so often that it rarely touches deeply. I invite us to pray it now and commit to make an effort to pray it meaningfully each time it is recited: “glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit…”
“May the blessing of Almighty God, the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit come down upon you and remain with you always. Amen.
Fr. Clement Paul.
