Feast of the Holy Trinity

This weekend we celebrate the Feast of the Holy Trinity, a celebration of the mystery of God as a community of love. The community consists of three distinct persons, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who want to share their love with us. Their loving, relational, collaborative, sharing community witnesses equality, full participation and outreach in love to all creation (mission). The Father initiates, the Son implements, and the Spirit empowers.

Relationship is God’s nature.  We are made in the image and likeness of God, so the need and ability to relate is in our nature too. The abundant and generous love flowing from one to another in the Trinity and throughout creation is what we are called to imitate. Our love of, and for one another is how we meet God.

Today’s feast invites us to respond to the love of God, poured into our hearts by Christ and the Holy Spirit, and to look forward to the day when we shall share in the glory of God, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.  It is also an occasion to consider our personal relationships, how they might be strengthened or healed. The culmination of our Offertory Giving Programme today makes it timely to affirm our relationship to the Parish.

Love of neighbour and God is intentional in nature.  It doesn’t just happen. The gift
you make of yourself, whether to family, friend or parish community, is something only you can do. It is in giving that you find completion, fulfilment. Are you ready?
