Speak Lord: Father, Son and Spirit

Throne of Grace

The second reading for tomorrow’s Mass of the Trinity comes from St Paul’s letter to the Romans.

The feast celebrates the extraordinary relationship of Father Son and Spirit in the One God. The reading identifies us as members of the family.

Everyone moved by the Spirit is a son of God. The spirit you received is not the spirit of slaves bringing fear into your lives again; it is the spirit of sons, and it makes us cry out, ‘Abba, Father!’ The Spirit himself and our spirit bear united witness that we are children of God. And if we are children we are heirs as well: heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, sharing his sufferings so as to share his glory.

Romans 8:14-17

The ‘family’, that is the One God, protects, sustains, restores.

Give thanks for the love that surrounds you. And wonder how to share the good news with others.
