Reflection from Fr. Taylor: May 22. 2016, Most Holy Trinity

Reflection from Fr. Taylor, May 22, 2016, the Most Holy Trinity

The Easter Season concluded last Sunday with the Feast of Pentecost. Now the church takes us to two other Feast Days, the Feast of the Most Holy Trinity, and next Sunday, The Feast of Corpus Christi, the body and blood of our Lord. All of these Feast Days are related to one another. They remind us about the very essence of our faith.

In our daily prayer we always begin in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. This is routine for most of us who are Catholic. During His brief time on earth Jesus called God His Father, “Everything that the Father has is mine.” Then He promised to send the Holy Spirit. “When He comes the Spirit of Truth He will guide you all to truth.” In fact the more we try to grasp this God the more we realize that He is beyond all our comprehension. At the same time He is so close to us in Jesus, who put His tent among us, and became one like us in everything but sin.

On this Feast of the Holy Trinity we have an opportunity to celebrate  the richness, the awesome mysteriousness of our God. We praise Him for His majesty and revel in His goodness. So much that happens in our life is based upon faith, trust and hope. The most important things are not those that we have physical evidence of but, the things that happen in our life day in and day out which prove to us God’s providential care. Our test is to try to hold on to that faith and also to pass it on to others. That’s what the heart of Evangelization is all about.

There are so many ways on a parish level that we do this. Every committee, every program, every ministry that we have is about sharing the Good News of Jesus Christ. We express our faith in God as a loving Father, as a wonderful Brother, Jesus Christ, and as a Spirit that continues to be alive in all of us. As we continue to work and plan for the future, let’s remember that we have no future if the Lord is not the very center of our lives.  He must guide and direct our every action.
