FRIENDS and SERVANTS of the WORD
MOST HOLY TRINITY – SOLEMNITY
June 7, 2020
WORD of the DAY
For 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. (Jn 3: 16-18)
How shall I live this Word?
BELIEVE in the love of God, believe in His benevolence, believe that God loves us … this is what makes us return to fullness! What is our condemnation? Not believing that God loves us! Jesus tells us this. The only real question is “to believe in the Love of God”, in His goodness which is manifested in the Son. There are no other problems: this is what decides our happiness and opens us to His tenderness. Good, love, cannot be imposed. God offers it to us, gives it to us. Everyone can be saved, no one can consider themselves a stranger to salvation, because everyone is loved, but … not everyone lets themselves be loved. The Trinity is this reality of Love and we, made in the image of God, only in the Trinity do we really feel at home!
Let Your Spirit Lord, shape us to ‘welcome’ Your Love!
The voice of Pope Francis, Angelus, Sunday 22 May 2016
Our being created in the image and likeness of God-communion calls us to understand ourselves as beings-in-relationship and to live interpersonal relationships in solidarity and mutual love. These relationships are played out, first of all, within our ecclesial communities, so that the image of the Church icon of the Trinity is increasingly evident. But they are played in every other social relationship, from family to friendships to the workplace: they are concrete opportunities that are offered to us to build ever more humanly rich relationships, capable of mutual respect and selfless love.
The feast of the Holy Trinity invites us to engage in daily events to be a leaven of communion, consolation, and mercy. In this mission, we are supported by the strength that the Holy Spirit gives us: He heals the flesh of humanity wounded by injustice, abuse, hatred, and greed.
