My Gospel Reflections for June 3, Sunday Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity Matthew 28:16-20


My Reflections:
There’s a story about St. Augustine, while he was walking on the seaside and reflecting on the mystery of the Trinity. He saw a boy who created a big hole in the sand and the boy was continuously filling the big hole with water. St. Augustine asked him, “What are you doing?” The boy said: “I’m going to pour the entire ocean into this hole.” “That is impossible, the whole ocean will not fit in the hole that you have created” said St. Augustine. The boy replied, “And you will not comprehend also the mystery of the  Trinity in your brain.” The boy vanished and St. Augustine saw an angel where the boy was located.

If we are asked today about the Most Holy Trinity some of us may be able to answer it as the fusion of the three persons into one God.  Some of us may not be able to answer because we don’t have any knowledge about the Holy Trinity. It doesn't  matter anymore if we are able to answer or not on the question about the Trinity. What is important is we believe with faith this seemingly unbelievable doctrine of the church.

The Trinity represents love and unity it shows us that the impossible will become possible for so long as there is love and unity amongst us. What makes a family happily united? What makes church communities successful? What makes many sovereign governments successful? It’s love! Love that forgives, love that is willing to sacrifice, love that is honest and love that is humble. This kind of pure love is the embodiment of the Holy Trinity that is why they’re able to coexist as one God even if they are actually three persons.

In our gospel we have Jesus commissioning the eleven apostles to go and make disciples of all nations and baptize them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19). What compelled them to faithfully follow this command of Jesus even at the cost of their lives? It’s the same Trinitarian love.

This Trinitarian love is what is presently missing right now: In our respective families, in our many church communities and in our government.

Do we have this Trinitarian Love in our family and in our church community?
