       The Trinity is "A Relationship"

Dear brothers and sisters,  

     Today is Holy Trinity Sunday, when the Church remembers that God is “Three-in-one-God. The Trinity gets to the heart of what God is all about and what he expects of us. The Trinity is a mystery. Every theologian and saint proves it. Mystery can’t be understood but could be lived or experienced.

     The Trinity is a “relationship.” Early Church theologians described the Trinity as a dynamic dance of love between the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. A mystery that discloses something very simple about God. It reveals that God, in the depths of his being, is a relationship; God is love, that needs someone to love. This trinitarian relationship is reflected in this year’s Synod of Synodality under “Communion, Participation, Mission.”

     The Trinitarian relationship or love demands that availability, responsibility, relationship, care, compassion; and love permeate all that we are and all that we do, whether in person or online, in our thoughts, in our words, or our actions, in how we spend our life with others.

     The Trinity demands that we are “absolutely available” to others, to be a loving and life-enhancing gift to them – to stand alongside them in their pain, to weep with them in their grief, to rejoice with them in their joy, to speak up for those whose voices are silenced, etc. God is a relationship. Ask yourself then, “How do I relate myself in the life of others in ‘communion, participation and mission?” It is this relationship that reveals the mystery of God to us in our day-to-day living - mutually glorifying each other in thoughts, words and living. Living the Trinity is easier than trying to understand Him. Let our relation- ship BE Trinitarian!

Blessings!
