Dt. 4:32-34, 39-40 | Ps. 33:4-6, 9, 18-20, 22 | Rom. 8:14-17 | Mt. 28:16-20
Today is the feast of the Holy Trinity. The Church sets aside this day so that we might remember the Trinity and give honor and glory to them. This mystery of God is central to our faith. Deuteronomy reminds the people of the creating gifts of the Father who has been responsible for leading them away from the power of the Egyptians. Paul reminds us that we are led by the Spirit of God who has called us “children of God.” Yet, if we are children, then this gift has come from the Spirit who enables us to be adopted. If we are children of God, then we are heirs, heirs with Christ. If we are heirs, then we must remember the words of Christ spoken in the Gospel. We are given the admonition to go out and make disciples of all nations. This admonition was not made to the apostles only but to each and every one of us. How do we do this? By being the disciple who has heard Christ’s word and by living it each day of our lives. Christ concludes His lesson today by reminding us that He is always with us. What more do we need when we have the Trinity living in, guiding, and directing us?
Spend time praying over the gift of the Trinity living in you. Take time to be quiet and ponder this mystery. Decide on how you will take God’s word and bring it to others.
