Reflection for June 11, Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity; John 3:16-18

Gospel: John 3:16-18
God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him will not be condemned, but whoever does not believe has already been condemned, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.

Reflection:
There is a legend that while Saint Augustine was walking along the beach. Trying to understand how could there be three Persons in one God, he met a small child who was using a seashell to scoop water from the sea. 

The child would run back to the beach and pour the water into a small hole he dug in the sand. Augustine watched then asked the child what he was doing the child replied, I’m putting the sea into this hole.

 Augustine subsequently said: That is impossible for the simple reason that the hole will not contain the vast ocean. The child said to Augustine: “What you’re trying to understand is also impossible, you will not be able to uncover the mystery of the Holy Trinity.  

 Today is the Solemnity of the Blessed Trinity the three persons in one God. God the Father (the creator) God the Son (Jesus our Savior) and God the Holy Spirit (our Sanctifier). They are three distinct personalities and yet they are one. This is the mystery of the Holy Trinity; they are three yet one.

It’s hard to understand why the Father, Son and Holy Spirit are one. But if we would be faithful to the teaching of our faith we would discover that we will not anymore be curious why they are three yet one. God himself thru Jesus and the Holy Spirit will give us the wisdom to simply believe this mystery.

The secret therefore to unraveling the mystery of the Blessed Trinity is to humbly believe and have faith. There are those who believe but at the same time they also try to discover this mystery.

They think that they could understand it through their intellect only to find out they cannot. When we walk with God and seek to discover more about him we should walk with our faith and not with our sight.

This is also the secret to understand the mystery of the Holy Trinity: To simply trust on our faith and not on our sight. To simply hold on to God's infinite wisdom and not on our finite understanding. – Marino J. Dasmarinas
