"The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity"

As we celebrate this Solemnity, we call to mind again that God is mystery. Despite our best efforts, our God can never be contained or comprehended.  From our finite minds we create images in poetry and art that attempt to explain the inexplicable.  Who is this triune God and how might we know the divine?

Over time we learn through experience who God is … we enter more deeply into relationship with mystery. Fr. Jude Sicilano, O.P., reminds us that “the Scriptures guide and nourish that relationship which we are constantly discovering anew.  They help us know God’s will for humanity and for all creation.” God’s word speaks to us in the divine language of love. 

As we entered our worship space today, we dipped our fingers into the holy water and traced the sign of the Cross on our bodies with the words: “In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.”  These life giving waters remind us of our baptism into the mystery of the Trinity. We profess:

  • Father/Creator as the God in whom we live, and move, and have our being.
  • Jesus the Christ, as Son, whom we acknowledge as “God with us.”
  • God’s Spirit who stirs divine life within us and enables us to live a life of grace.

In your daily life, how have you experienced this mystery of God? How have you experienced Jesus’ promise at the end of Matthew’s Gospel:  “Behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.”  How comfortable are you with living with mystery. May we hearken to Herbert O’Driscoll’s words:  “We do not think about the Trinity as much as experience it. Only then do we understand.  And here is the paradox, that we understand the Trinity most when we realize that we do not understand.”
