Reflection from Fr. Taylor: June 11, 2017, Trinity Sunday

Today we celebrate that as members of His body we are living in the Grace of The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Today’s Feast Day is related to Pentecost.

As Catholics we are used to addressing God as Father, Son and Spirit. We address it so visibly when we make the sign of the cross before and after prayers. At the beginning of each Mass the priest says something like “the grace of our Lord, Jesus Christ and the love of God, and the fellowship and Communion of the Holy Spirit be with you.” And we respond “And with your spirit.” As we begin our liturgies each week we realize how important that is, and since we are coming together as a church family we see how this bonds us all together in the Spirit.

Each week we call on The Triune God as we participate in the life of the Church. Faith and hope is always a gift given to us, but it must be lived. It is very important that we are empowered by the spirit to do God’s work. The Holy Spirit the great force within God and between us, unites us with God and each other. It is so good to know that as we go about our work in the world especially those many challenging things which have to do with poverty, illness, sickness, and death, gratitude is always expressed in doing good for others.

So as we celebrate Trinity Sunday we keep these things in mind and we welcome the Lord again into our lives, but remember He always  takes the initiative toward us and then we accept it.
