“Reflection”
We say “In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit,” not in the names of the Father, Son, and Spirit. For God, though three persons, is One. This is perhaps the most central mystery of our faith. Today we have the opportunity to reflect on the reality that God, though One, was able to send the Son and the Holy Spirit to us, to save us and to be with us forever.

             “The Fullness of Love

They say that “Two is company, three is a crowd” but today’s feast would have it otherwise. There, the figure three symbolizes completeness and perfect symmetry, and re-appears at all the key moments of the Christ story, for the life of Jesus constantly reflected the Trinity of God. The Holy Trinity, the mystery we celebrate today, is beyond the reach of time and the grasp of human reasoning.

Three figures make up the nativity scene in Bethlehem–the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary and Joseph. Their first visitors were the three wise men. Later, in the desert preparing to begin his public life, Jesus was tempted three times by the devil. A good story should have a beginning, a middle and an end. Christ was a storyteller par excellence and three figures prominently in his parables. The Prodigal Son is about a father and his two sons; the Good Samaritan tells of the behavior of three passers-by, the priest, the Levite and the Samaritan; the sower sowed his seed in three different types of terrain, yielding three different levels of harvest. The end of his life, as the beginning, has again the three motif. During his Passion, Peter denied him thrice. On the road to Calvary, he fell three times. The crucifixion scene has three figures, Christ between two thieves. Before his resurrection, he spent three days in the tomb. God is love. There are Three Persons in the Trinity, the Father the Son and the Holy Spirit. Together they represent the fullness of love. The Father loves the Son, the Son loves the Father. The Holy Spirit is their love for each other. We are made in the image of a triune God. God the Father, who created us, his Son who saved us, and the Holy Spirit who continues to guide us. Our lives should reflect the Trinity. We should be always creative like the Father, compassionate like his Son, and dispose our talents in the service of others like the Holy Spirit.

                    The inner being of God
Many Christians may not realize that adoring our God as Trinity means that God’s most profound reality is welcome and kindness. Ours is a God whose very essence is love. Perhaps the most vital conversion for most believers is to move from mainly considering God as All-powerful, to a God joyfully adored as Love.
Remember: an all-powerful being could be a despot, a destructive tyrant, an arbitrary dictator, a threat for our small and weak liberty. Could we really trust in a God whom we perceive mainly as almighty? How can I abandon myself to someone infinitely powerful? It would seem easier to mistrust, be cautious, be defensive of our independence. But our Gospel presents God as Trinity, an inter-relating mystery of Love. God’s power is that of one whose love is unfathomable and whose kindness is infinite. It is the love of God that is all-powerful. Only God can love infinitely. And each time we ignore this and forget that God is love, we fabricate a false God. Until we discover that God is only love, we relate superficially to God out of interest or fear. Our self-interest moves us to influence God’s omnipotence for our own gain, or our fear makes us seek every means to defend ourselves from God’s threatening power. But such a self-interested and fearful religion is closer to magic than to true Christian faith.
Only when we start with knowing that God is Love, and discover with fascination that God can’t be anything but Love that is present and beating in the deepest part of our lives, only then does trust in a Triune God begin to grow in our heart. This God of intimate, loving relationship whom Jesus reveals, and whom today we celebrate, can do nothing but love us. (José Antonio Pagola)

 

Gospel: Matthew(28:16-20)

“Jesus tells his followers to baptise in the name of the three divine persons
 
The eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority 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, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”
