June 19, 2011: Feast of the Holy Trinity

Isn't it awesome that we share in the family life of God?

God so loved the world that God sent God’s only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.
God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.
(John 3:16-17)

On this feast of the Holy Trinity we celebrate a great mystery.
God is three Persons in One.
God is the Creator; God is the Redeemer; God is the Sanctifier.
We can never understand a mystery; therefore, we cannot understand God as three persons. It doesn’t matter that we understand.
What is important is that we believe that God is the Source of all life, the Creator of all that is; that Jesus is God and also human, one of us; and that the Holy Spirit, the Sanctifier, continues the work Jesus began through us.
We are part of God because we share in the family life of God, the Holy Trinity.

Action:

That’s a pretty awesome thought: we share in the family life of God.
On this day when we honor our fathers; honor God as well.
Thank God for your life during the Eucharist this Sunday.
