May 26, 2024: The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity

Gospel: Matthew 28: 16-20

The eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had ordered them. When they all saw him, they worshiped, but they doubted. Then Jesus approached and said to them, “All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, until the end of the age.”


The risen Jesus has all the power of heaven and earth and tells the disciples it is time for them to go out to the entire world with the mission of making disciples of all, baptizing them in the new faith.

He promises he will be with them always as a living presence in them and in the church. As were the disciples, we must always be open to the spirit of God working in us.


The Trinity is one of the great mysteries of our faith. We will never comprehend it. But we believe and we study and continue to meditate on this mystery of the relationship in one God of the Father, the Creator, the Son and Redeemer and the Spirit, the fullness of  love God has poured out on us.

To continue to deepen and strengthen our faith it is important that we read and study scripture, read spiritual books and take the time for quiet prayer and contemplation, time to talk with and listen to God. Our faith is our greatest treasure and as such it needs to be cherished and nurtured.
