Mindful of my imperfections, seeking to know Truth more deeply and to live Love more fully.

Quid sum miser tunc dicturus? Quem patronum rogaturus? Cum vix iustus sit securus?
Recordare, Iesu pie, Quod sum causa tuae viae: Ne me perdas illa die...

Plug into the love

The Trinity, which we celebrate in a special way today, is a mystery.

Scripture has revealed it and Councils have established some definite statements about it, but it remains a mystery.

One of the ways in which theologians have spoken analogously about the Trinity is the Father as lover, the Son as beloved, and the Holy Spirit as the love.

On this Trinity Sunday, we may not be able to understand or even express this mystery adequately, but what we can do is plug into and to immerse ourselves more and more into the love which is God as His adopted children.

As Saint Paul reminds us in today’s second reading (Romans 8:14-17):

For those who are led by the Spirit of God
are sons of God.

For you did not receive a spirit of slavery
to fall back into fear,
but you received a Spirit of adoption,
through whom we cry, "Abba, Father!"

The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit
that we are children of God,
and if children, then heirs,
heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ,
if only we suffer with him
so that we may also be glorified with him.
