A brief reflection on today's Scripture passages:


Today the Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Blessed Trinity, a sublime mystery of our faith. Human understanding has no way of fathoming such creative love and unity manifested in One God in Three Divine Persons and yet it seems our nature is always striving, always searching for that kind of love and oneness.

Often we seek it in other persons and sometimes find a glimpse of it within the context of loving human relationships. At other times we may experience it in a brief connectedness with the created realities of the world; and yet all these experiences are brief and leave us longing for a permanent place where love and unity reside.

Often this becomes the motivating force of our lives - the reason why we do and choose the things we do. Frequently, it leads to frustration and sadness because, as an old song laments, we search for love in all the wrong places.

Today let us be reminded that the right place to find permanent love and belonging - a sense of wonder and awe that will never end resides in the heart of where we were created - in the heart of the Father, manifested in the human flesh of Jesus and poured out on the world by the Holy Spirit, in the Holy Trinity

Let us remember the words of St. Augustine. who said:
≥My heart is restless O my God until it rests in Thee.≤

And where art Thee, O Lord?

Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity, OCD would tell us:
≥My Three, my Three deep inside of me.≤

- Donna Marie Teresa of the Blessed Trinity, OCDS
