Reflections
for Sunday, May 27, 2018

Abba, Father! We come to the Lord today, asking that He keep us aware of this great mystery of the Trinity. It is this belief that God is Trinity, three in one, that distinguishes the Christian faith from all other beliefs. We believe that God is Father, that Jesus is Son and equal to the Father and is God, and that the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of the Father and the Son and also God. It is a truly challenging belief and we believe because Jesus taught us to believe.

The first reading today is from the Book of Deuteronomy. This passage tells us of the incredible experience of our ancestors in the faith. God spoke to them! This is what you and I receive from our ancestors in the faith: God speaks to His people! Today not many still believe in such revelation. We believe and because of that belief, we believe in Jesus Christ and in the Spirit. God speaks to us today in His Church and through the Sacraments and in our daily lives through faith.

The second reading is from the Letter to the Romans. We must come to know within ourselves that our faith is a gift of the Spirit, that we can speak of Jesus as our Lord and Savior because of the Spirit within us, that we call God our Father because the Spirit is the pledge of our adoption as children of God, of the Father. These words must become words that speak of the reality that we experience. Today, as we honor Father, Son and Spirit, let us seek to live these mysteries more profoundly in our lives.

Today's Gospel is from Saint Matthew and gives us the formula of Baptism in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Baptism is the wonderful gift of being incorporated into Jesus Christ and into all the mysteries of our faith. Most importantly, it is a proclamation that God is Triune, Three-in-One, that God is in Jesus teaching us about the mysteries of God.

For many of us, we only know this great mystery because we have come to believe in Jesus Christ as our Lord. It is He who teaches us. It is He who draws us into this great mystery of God. To Him be glory and honor forever.
