My dear parishioners and friends,
I could write an essay on the Blessed Trinity that would blow you socks off, but there is no way that my words would encompass the real meaning of God and what God is really all about.
It’s like when St. Thomas Aquinas was writing is Summa Theologica and he finished it, put the quill down and said: “Though it is done, it is meaningless.” Meaning, though he had many great words and explanations, nothing quiet fit the explanation of the Trinity. Me, a mere parish priest, cannot compete alongside a Saint in defining the Blessed Trinity.
But I’m going to use another Saint to give you and exercise to do. Read this little ditty and see what you think: “God the Creator, God the Redeemer, and, God the Sanctifier.” All three adjectives define who the Blessed Trinity is. How often do we talk to them? Maybe what we need is to shorten that, and let that become our prayer. “Creator, Redeemer, Sanctifier. Creator, Redeemer, Sanctifier… Creator, Redeemer, Sanctifier …”
What if, during the course of our day, we took some time just to let that seep in as first a prayer that we say, then as a prayer that we mean………..
