June 16, 2019: The Most Holy Trinity
Each year the Sunday after Pentecost returns us into Ordinary Time. This Sunday is also the feast of The Most Holy Trinity. This mystery is a most important one for us Christians. God is mysteriously one and three at the same time. Unity and diversity are at the heart of God’s being. We are drawn into this Trinitarian mystery.
Today St. Paul reminds us that through Jesus Christ “we have gained access by faith to this grace.” Through Jesus’ divinity and humanity a door is opened for us to know, love, and serve the Trinity. St. Paul also says that “the love of God has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.” This “pouring” is remembered at each Mass as we recall Jesus words over the cup of wine at the Last Supper.
How do you experience access to God’s life and love? How do you experience God’s love being poured out for you?
