A Moment’s Meditation: Trinity Sunday

Holy Trinity Rublev

Before the creation of the world the Most Holy Trinity filled Eternity.  In Creation the Blessed Trinity was manifested, and imprinted the divine image in man.  It is foreshadowed many times in the events, the prophecies and the canticles of the Old Testament.  The Incarnation is the work of the Blessed Trinity.  In Its name are the chief works of regeneration performed in the Church.  At the end of the world, this Adorable Trinity will be the term of all things as It was the beginning; the occupation of the elect will be to see and bless the Three Divine Persons saying: Holy, holy, holy, is the Lord.  Glory to Him in the highest!

Prayer: O Trinity, You are a glorious Flower glorifying Yourself, You are Your own glorious Fruit (St. Catherine of Siena).

Practice:  Each time you say the Gloria Patri (Glory to the Father…), offer your life to God for His glory.

From “Saints and Saintly Dominicans: Daily Reflections on Their Lives”, edited by Rev. Thomas a Kempis Reilly, O.P. (1915).

The Trinitarian horizon of communion, said Pope Francis, “embraces us all, and encourages us to live in love and fraternal sharing, assured that where there is love, there is God.”
