Welcome to Week 6. On Sunday, we celebrated the Feast of the Holy Trinity. I have included a beautiful reflection for Trinity Sunday and I encourage you to read this.
Last week we celebrated the conferral of Confirmation and First Holy Communion with our Year 4 Sacrament Program Candidates. I thank families for preparing their children. I would like to congratulate these children and ask you to hold them close in prayer:
Gospel Reflection for Trinity Sunday
There is no end to the topics and things that we can now ‘Google’ on the internet. However, the Trinity is not one of them! No matter how hard we try, we will never fully understand this deep mystery. And although we can’t even begin to get hold of or grasp the fullness of the Trinity, our faith helps us in some small way to experience its power and presence in our lives. The Trinity is part of our Christian faith and tradition. It cannot be understood with the head, but it is a reality that we are called to experience and believe in through our prayer and our heart.
When we use the word ‘mystery’ to talk about the Trinity, we are not talking about a puzzle or a riddle that is to be solved. The Trinity is a mystery that is so deep and meaningful that its riches can never be exhausted. The Trinity is the unique relationship of creative love that exists between the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Through the gift and grace of our baptism and confirmation we are personally invited to be part of this dynamic and life-giving union. As the first reading this Sunday tells us, ‘…. The love of God has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit which we have received.’
In moments of prayer and Christian living, we experience the love of the Trinity and we are transformed. This is a free gift that always comes from God. It is made real and visible through the life, death and resurrection of Jesus. Through the outpouring of the Holy Spirit we are encouraged and strengthened to live our lives as followers of Jesus.
We are made in the image of likeness of a triune God who is not remote or distant, but God who became flesh and now lives amongst us. We are created in the image of God the Father who creates us, of Jesus the Son who saves us and the Holy Spirit who continues to strengthen us. As we celebrate this wonderful feast, we pray that each of us will continue to be blest in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen.
