In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit
Today’s Feast lies at the very heart of our Christian faith. The God we worship is Father, Son and Holy Spirit,
Three Persons, One Eternal God.
This mystery is beyond anything our human minds or imagination can express or grasp. Faith alone leads us to accept and live the mystery, recognising that it takes us into deep relationship with the Father, the Son and the Spirit.
Both Moses (First Reading) and the Psalm speak of the love, faithfulness and majesty of our God, who calls us to praise, revere and serve him as chosen people.
St.. Paul (Second Reading) reminds us that we become children of God by the gift of the Holy Spirit dwelling within us. By the power of the Spirit, we are able to call God our Father. As we share in the sufferings of Christ for our world, we also share his eternal glory.
Jesus’ last words, as given by Matthew (Gospel), speak of the promise of Jesus to his disciples, as he sends us to witness to him:
“Know that I am with you always, yes, to the end of time.”
