From The Pastor

An angel appears at a faculty meeting and tells the dean that in return for his unselfish and exemplary behavior, the Lord will reward him with his choice of infinite wealth, wisdom or beauty. Without hesitating, the dean selects infinite wisdom.

"Done!" says the angel, and disappears in a cloud of smoke and a bolt of lightning. Now, all heads turn toward the dean, who sits surrounded by a faint halo of light. At length, one of his colleagues whispers, "Say something."

The dean looks at them and says, "I should have taken the money.”

We think small most of the time. And it is never more obvious than when we are thinking about God. We imagine God to be like someone we already know. We make God into a Policeman, or God the Sweet Old Guy with a long beard, or God the Absentee Landlord, and so on. The feast of the Trinity is aimed at getting our image straight.

God is a relationship, a community of Father, Son and Spirit. God is “we” and not “I”. The God revealed to us does not “do” love; God is love.

We are surrounded and enfolded in this relationship. In this mystery ‘we live and move and have our being.’ When we come to church we usually make the sign of the cross and pray the words that accompany this holy action, “In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit”. This simple prayer reminds us that there are three persons in God. It also calls to mind that when we first entered the Church we were baptized in the same Holy Trinity. We belong to the family of God; we are members of His household, co- heirs with Christ, anointed with the Holy Spirit. We live in the mystery of Trinity. “Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning is now and ever shall be world without end. Amen”

– Fr. Joe
