|“Moses at once bowed down to the ground in worship.” —Exodus 34:8|
A bishop was examining the candidates for Confirmation at a certain parish. He asked the young people to tell him what the Holy Trinity was. A boy answered: “It’s one-in-three, and three-in-one.” The bishop, gently probing to determine if the boy truly prepared for the sacrament, said: “That’s good, but I don’t understand.” The youth immediately responded: “You’re not supposed to!”
We can’t ever grasp the how of the Holy Trinity, but we can know the Who. This is because God continually reveals Himself to us. “Yes, God so loved the world that He gave His only Son” (Jn 3:16) “to reveal” Himself more fully to us (Lk 10:22). The Father and the Son pour out Their love into our hearts through the Holy Spirit (Rm 5:5), Who constantly reminds us that we are now adopted children of God (Rm 8:15). Then the Holy Spirit helps us to know the Father so deeply that we can’t help but “cry out, ‘Abba!’ (that is, ‘Father’)” (Rm 8:15; Gal 4:6).
|Prayer: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, grant that I may be caught up into the mystery of Your Triune love each day.|
|Promise: “God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through Him.” —Jn 3:17|
|Praise: “Praise the Holy Trinity, undivided Unity, holy God, mighty God, God immortal, be adored!”|
