SOLEMNITY OF THE MOST BLESSED TRINITY
The triangle has been described as the most durable shape there is. The three sides and three angles make it a perfect figure that will never collapse into another form. And unlike the circles that might become ovals, even if you compress the three angles in the triangle this figure will retain its form. And the greatest triangle of all, the Trinity, is what we celebrate today. This is our belief in the three Divine Persons.
In our prayers and liturgies we invoke the names of these three Divine Persons. They are distinct and unique – but still ONE and the same God. Last week we celebrated the Feast of Pentecost when the Holy Spirit came down to be with us. The Spirit that has come down on us is a manifestation of God’s abiding presence in each one of us. Let us continue to reflect on how God is intensely involved in each person’s life and how He is present in our homes and in our churches and in our Christian communities.
Every time we make the sign of the cross and say “In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit” let us remember what God has done for us and will continue to do for us. He has created us in love and He has sent us Jesus Christ and His own Spirit. He wants us to be near Him and
He asks us to do our share in renewing the world that we live in.

Points of Reflection
How do we welcome the Holy Spirit in our life?
When and how do we recognize the Holy Spirit working in our life? What are the “fruits” of the Holy Spirit?
Why is it important to pray to the Holy Spirit?
What can happen if we doe not live according to the Holy Spirit? And how can we live by the Spirit of the Lord?
