Home > Pastor's Blog > May 26th, 2013 – Trinity Sunday – Year C

Today we celebrate Trinity Sunday. As Christians, we contemplate the mystery—the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—and ask ourselves what significance this might have for us today. We baptize and bless in the name of the Trinity. Jesus commissions all in the name of the divine Three. We are “made in the image” of the Trinity!

The Trinity means that God is a Community. This is the “truth” that Jesus speaks of in the Gospel. The three divine Persons are in relationship with each other, is a profound spirit of trust and outpouring of love. The Trinity is self giving surrender and shared love with all creation. Love is a bonding-agent. “One God and three Persons” is a oneness with diversity.

As Christians we are called to reflect the Trinity as Community in our daily activities and relationships. An authentic community, nurtured by the Eucharist, requires trust, sacrifice, dialogue, participation, listening, silence. It is a challenge to live community within our families, workplace, school and among nations.
