MOST HOLY TRINITY Prv 8:22–31 / Rom 5:1–5 / Jn 16:12–15
My neighbor shared that she got a porch swing for Mother’s Day this year. “Ooh,” I said, “that’s a great gift. Your husband really knows how to shop for you.” She replied, “Only because I told him exactly what I wanted. I picked it out, he picked it up.” Is anyone else envious of her? Sure, it loses the element of surprise, but it’s quite nice to receive exactly what you asked for. We can spend Trinity Sunday meditating on the mystery of the Trinitarian nature of God, but today’s readings remind us to also reflect on the incredible gift the Trinity is. It’s exactly what we asked for—even though we wouldn’t have known to ask for such a gift. We experience the creative power of the Father, noted in the Proverbs reading. All the universe’s beauty, all the details of nature, all artistic inspirations find their source in the Father. What a most desired gift. We experience the redeeming power of the Son, who took on our human nature as his own. He knows our struggles and joys, and he calls us to leave behind our sins and follow his example. His love to the end redeems our brokenness and has given us hope which, as Saint Paul declares, “does not disappoint.” What a most desired gift. We experience the sanctifying power of the Spirit, who sustains us daily with the love of the Father and Son. We can choose rightly, live justly, and act lovingly because of the Spirit’s guidance in every moment. What a most desired gift. What a gift. What a God we have. We are, among all people, so richly blessed.
