God of tenderness and compassion, slow to anger, rich in kindness and faithfulness
We end our Easter Season with the feast of the Most Holy Trinity. We celebrate the communion of love that is God and in which we are all called to share. Rublev’s icon of the Trinity, depicted at the top of the page of this week’s Prego, shows the open fourth side of the table. This is our place: we are invited to share in the kindness and love of God.
God himself speaks to Moses his own self-definition: God of tenderness and compassion, slow to anger, rich in kindness and faithfulness. In return Moses bows in adoration, and humbly asks God to forgive the faults of the people and become their God. (First Reading).
The Gospel speaks of God as our Father who so loved our world that he sent Jesus to live and die as one of us.
St Paul (Second Reading) ends his second letter to the Corinthians with words of encouragement and blessing in the name of the Trinity.
The Psalm uses the words of Daniel to praise and give thanks to God: to you glory and praise for ever more.
In the stillness of my prayer, I ponder the mystery of God made man for me. I too may praise God: to you be glory for ever!
