Sunday, May 22, 2016
Solemnity of the Most Blessed Trinity
More details"Now this is the Catholic faith: We worship one God in the Trinity and the Trinity in unity, without either confusing the persons or dividing the substance; for the person of the Father is one, the Son's is another, the Holy Spirit's another; but the Godhead of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit is one, their glory equal, their majesty coeternal" (Athanasian Creed: DS 75; ND 16). Catechism of the Catholic Church, 266.

A Declaration of Dependency

Lectio

“I have yet many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come.  He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine and declare it to you. All that the Father has is mine; therefore, I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you”.  (Jn 16:12-15)

Contemplatio: 

The Trinity is a Truth that is only known relationally, if we have self-giving and un-possessive Love. So, “if we see Love, we see the Trinity”.
