THE WAYS WE EXPERIENCE GOD

Liturgical Colour: 

2 Cor. 13:11-13, Jn. 3:16-18

Today on Trinity Sunday we celebrate the central mystery of our faith. Although not specifically stated anywhere in the Bible, it is implicit all through the New Testament. The first Christians were all Jews and fiercely monotheistic. They believed in only one God and that did not change, but this one God touched their lives in three different ways. The mystery of the Trinity emerged not so much as doctrine but from experience.

THE MYSTERY OF THE BLESSED TRINITY AS REVEALED TO US

Liturgical Colour: 

Prov.8:22-31; Rom. 5:1-5 & Jn. 16:12-15

Every relationship we value involves a revelation of ourselves to another person. Ordinarily, this is a gradual process, becoming deeper as the relationship grows. It can begin before a personal meeting, especially through an individual's works. An artist reveals something of himself in his painting, a musician through the playing of her instrument. We can be impressed by how a son looks after his elderly mother or the dedication a woman brings to her work in a care home.

THE BEST NEWS

Mt. 28:16-20

I was singing in Wigan for the starving in the world and a Muslim approached me. 'Is it true that you believe that in God there are three Persons? Three into one doesn’t go.' He was right that three into one does not go but I, and all other Christians, can believe in the Holy Trinity, although we cannot understand nor explain it, because God has given us the gift of faith.
