    May 22, 2005, Holy Trinity Sunday

    "The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all! ” (2 Corinthians 13:13)

    READINGS:
    1. Exodus 34:4b-6, 8-9
    2. 2 Corinthians 13:11-13
    3. John 3:16-18

    REFLECTION: When we hear the word Trinity, we are called to think beyond a triangle or a shamrock. There is the Father who created the world, the Son whose sacrifice restored us to God, and the Spirit who gently brings us peace. There is the universe and there are the universes beyond what we could imagine. There are the heavens and living forever and one day becoming like God and loving as he loves. And there is more and more and still more.

    PRAYER: Blessed are you, Lord our God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. You live a life of total love and when we love one another, we share your life. We are so blessed that you are our God and so we pray: 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.

    FAMILY DISCUSSION/ACTIVITY:

    Monday:
    All creation flows from the Trinity. Spend some time today in thanksgiving for the gifts of creation.

    Tuesday:
    Enjoy a peaceful meal today with the family. Experience the peace and realize that it is a share in the peace of the Spirit.

    Wednesday:
    Pray the Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary with family or friends today. Pray for Peace in the World.

    Thursday:
    Trinity Sunday and Pentecost Sunday remind us of the gifts of the Spirit. Place a basket on the table and ask each member of the family to write a short note recognizing each other’s gifts. Read the notes during the meal.

    Friday:
    As a gesture of peace and use of your gifts of the Spirit, go out of your way to do something for a person or persons in need.

    Saturday:
    Spend some time today reading something that will help you appreciate the meaning of The Holy Trinity.

    PRAYER: By the power of the Holy Spirit living within us, and in the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ, let us give thanks to God the Father, always and for everything. Amen.
