Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity • 16 June 2019
The feast of the Holy Trinity Sunday falls on the first Sunday after Pentecost.
We belong to the family of the Triune God since the day of our baptism. Three Persons in one God who love us unconditionally.
Let us deepen our personal relationship with each Persons of the Trinity by asking God to reveal Himself to us more deeply. “God, I believe that you are the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Guide us in our spiritual practice to know you in a more personal way!”
Joy Flows from Communion with God
The joy that Jesus offers his disciples is his own joy, which flows from his intimate communion with the One who sent him. It is a joy that does not separate happy days from sad days, successful moments from moments of failure, experiences of honour from experiences of dishonour, passion from resurrection. This joy is a divine gift that does not leave us during times of illness, poverty, oppression or persecution. It is present even when the world laughs or tortures, robs or maims. It is truly ecstatic, always moving us away from the house of fear into the house of love, and always proclaiming that death no longer has the final say. The joy of Jesus lifts up life to be celebrated.
