Reflection for Sunday May 22, Solemnity of the Most Blessed Trinity; John 16:12-15

Gospel: John 16:12-15
Jesus said to his disciples: "I have much more to tell you, but you cannot bear it now. But when he comes, the Spirit of truth, he will guide you to all truth. He will not speak on his own, but he will speak what he hears, and will declare to you the things that are coming. He will glorify me, because he will take from what is mine and declare it to you. Everything that the Father has is mine; for this reason I told you that he will take from what is mine and declare it to you."

Reflection:
A responsible husband suddenly died without any sign of sickness. The bereaved wife and her children were asking God, why it happened? There really are events in our lives that are very hard to explain.

However we have to accept these mysterious things. And we have to believe that somewhere or somehow there shall be enlightenment and acceptance for so long as we will never lose our faith in God.

Today is the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity, the three Gods that became one or the three persons in one God. How can it be that God the Father, Son and the Holy Spirit who are all distinct and separate from each other could become one?

The secret of the oneness and unity of the Blessed Trinity is love. What make God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit one is love and what binds them together is love. Love at its purest and love without envy and deceit. Come to think of it what unifies a family, what makes friendship true and forever? It’s also love the same love that is always present in the Holy Trinity.

For many of us this is very hard to explain and much harder to believe. However there are teachings of the church that we have to embrace without a single doubt. And the Dogma about the Holy Trinity is one of these teachings.

On the other hand, how can we embrace this dogma/teachings about the Holy Trinity if we seldom go to church for Holy Mass? If our bibles are only gathering dust in the lonely corner of our respective homes?  If we seldom reserve daily time for God and if we do not put essence to our faith by living it? – Marino J.
