Trinity and Community

This weekend the Church worships and honors the Blessed Trinity, the Three Persons in One God. These Three Persons are distinct, one from the other, and yet they are equal and perfectly One God. This mystery of Three Persons in One God has been studied, discussed, and explained since the earliest days of the Church. It is beyond our complete understanding, but we know it is true from Jesus’ own reference to the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. (Mt. 28:19)

We human beings are created in the image and likeness of God. This means that we are also something of a mystery. It also means that we are called to form a community: distinct persons who are united as one. We are called to form a community because God is a Community.

In practical terms, this brings to mind two important questions. Do I respect the unique individuality of each person? And do I strive to cultivate the unity of all persons? The main virtue that helps us accomplish these things is the virtue of charity. No wonder the Scriptures tell us “God is Love” (1 Jn. 4:8)! This week let’s give extra effort to the practice of charity in all our thoughts, words, and actions. In this manner we will become a living act of praise of the Blessed Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Amen!

Gratefully yours,
