The Most Holy Trinity (C)

Trinity Sunday: 16th June 2019

Prov. 8:22-31; Ps. 9(8):4-5,6-7,8-9;
Rom. 5:1-5; Jn. 16:12-15 (Psalter proper)

We have the assurance: the Spirit will guide you to the whole truth! Human strength admires holding on and personal independence! But the mystery of the Trinity is about each One letting go into the Other! God’s mystery is total mutual dependence!

We like control. GOD loves vulnerability. We are practised at hiding and protecting ourselves. GOD seems to be in some kind of total disclosure for the sake of the Other! Our strength, we think, is in asserting and protecting our boundaries. GOD is into dissolving boundaries between Father, Son and Spirit yet finding them in that very outpouring.

GOD for us, we call you Father! GOD walking alongside us, we call you Jesus! GOD within us, we call you Spirit. You are the Eternal Mystery that enables and holds and enlivens all things even our very beings!

Every name falls short of Your goodness and greatness, we can only see who You are in what is! As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, Amen!
