Trinity Sunday Todays society is not at all comfortable with the idea of mystery. We like to be in control of our destiny & have an explanation for everything that happens. This weekend we have the first of the great feasts of the Church, in which the Trinity, a mystery of Faith, gives us a wonderful insight into the life of God. Todays feast draws back the curtains on God’s life & lets us look inside. What we see is that God is a family of three persons- Father, Son & Spirit, bound together in a relationship of love & harmony. Three persons in the one God, something totally beyond our comprehension, the mystery of the Trinity is not something we can work out intellectually but is something to be lived out in our lives. God is closer to us than we are to ourselves. Trinity Sunday is a time for reflecting on the presence of God in our midst, in the happenings of our own lives as well as in the people we meet on a daily basis, because that is where God is to be found. Today let us evaluate how well we fulfil the destiny our creator has designed for us.
