REFLECTION ON TODAY’S READINGS - GOD IS NOT ALONE, NEITHER ARE WE
The solemnity of the Holy Trinity celebrates one of the fundamental beliefs of Christianity: we believe in One God, composed of three distinct persons - the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, united in love and generous self-giving, who work together for the salvation of humanity. As human beings, we come from differing backgrounds and cultures, have different temperaments and opinions, and we belong to various groups by birth or affinity. These differences, in human considerations alone, give rise to rivalry, jealousy, competitiveness, discord and conflict. But as Christians, we are called to take the Holy Trinity as the model for our interpersonal relationships. Our differences, instead of being a cause of division, become a richness to be accepted, encouraged and celebrated. Our varying gifts become charisms to be used in collaboration with others, for the good of all. May our faith enable us to rise above petty human divisions to reflect God’s boundless love and generosity.
