The Holy Trinity, the undivided unity

The Holy Trinity, the undivided unity

By REV. FR. SAMUEL FREDERICK

Deut. 4:32-34.39-40, Rom. 8:14-17, Mt. 28:16-20. Today we celebrate the Most Holy Trinity, the revelation of the mystery of God’s inner life. This mystery will remain for us as long as we live in this world, even though the veil which covers it is lifted ever so little. Our God is not a personal God, but a God who exists as three Persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, while remaining one God. Although we may not give a logical explanation for this, our faith enables us to experience the presence of God. The Holy Trinity is beyond the reach of time and the grasp of human reasoning. It is a mystery of our faith. We can only fumble in the dark in search of glimmers of light. “Two is company, three is a crowd” is a popular expression.

Today’s Gospel presents us with the figure that symbolises completeness and perfect symmetry and re-appears at all the key moments of the story of Christ. His life itself constantly reflected the Trinity. Three figures make up the nativity scene in Bethlehem — the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph. Their first visitors were the three wise men. Later, in the desert preparing to begin His public life, Jesus was tempted three times by the devil. God is love. There are Three Persons in the Trinity, the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit. Together they represent the fullness of love. The Father loves the Son, the Son loves the Father and the Holy Spirit is their love for each other. Our lives should reflect the Trinity. We should be always creative like the Father, compassionate like His Son and dispose our talents in the service of others like the Holy Spirit.

May the Lord grant us a lively faith and a true spirit of God! Amen!! Happy Sunday!!!
