Jesus said to Nicodemus:
‘God loved the world so much that he gave his only Son,
so that everyone who believes in him may not be lost
but may have eternal life.
For God sent his Son into the world
not to condemn the world,
but so that through him the world might be saved.
No one who believes in him will be condemned;
but whoever refuses to believe is condemned already,
because he has refused to believe in the name of God’s only Son.’
This coming Sunday we celebrate the most profound mystery of the Christian Faith: God’s revelation of his inner being. The One God has become known to us also as three divine persons, united in substance. The triune God is above all made known to us in love – in the self giving of the Son for love of the Father, and the pouring out of the Spirit.
The feast of the Trinity, is kept each year on the Sunday following the end of the Easter Season. This is most appropriate, as it is most especially through the experience of the Paschal Mystery that we best appreciate the mystery of the Trinity.
- To which person of the Trinity do you most attend in your prayer? Father, Son or Spirit?
- By which are you most influenced in your daily life
