Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity

Today, we’re invited to contemplate the Trinity. We begin with a poetic passage from the book of Proverbs calling us to listen to Wisdom. The divine voice invites us to take a step back into pre-creation, “before the earth, when there were no depths, no fountains or springs of water, before the mountains were settled into place.” We’re told that Wisdom witnessed the birth of time and space, the sky, the foundations of the earth. Wisdom found “delight in the human race.”

In the second reading we move on to Saint Paul who reminds us that “we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ…because the love of God has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.”

Finally, John instructs us to be open to the Spirit of truth who will guide us, “speaking to us what he hears.” The Spirit will begin to reveal the mystery of God to us, step by step, insight by insight, shedding more and more light on the person of Jesus.

As we contemplate the Trinity, Creator, Word and Spirit of truth, we contemplate our dynamic relationship to the mystery that is God. We’re told today that the heart of God eternally pours out its creative love, spinning into existence the universe, the galaxies and all that they contain. We’re told, today, that this eternal act of creation is also an eternal invitation to touch the heart of God, to listen to it beat, and to hear the voice of Love itself. The Spirit invites us to look at the face of Jesus and see the face of God.

Let us contemplate these great truths today.

Let Us Pray:

Holy Spirit, touch my eyes that I might clearly see God in all of creation. Enlighten my mind to understand more fully the mystery of Jesus, God made man. Open my heart that it may beat in harmony with Love itself.
