Blessed Sacrament - St. Vincent dePaul Trinity Sunday Mass June 7, 2020

First Reading: Exodus 34:4b-6, 8-9
Responsorial Psalm: Daniel 3:52, 53, 54, 55
Second Reading: 2 Corinthians 13: 11-13
Gospel Reading: John 3:16 - 18

Reflection: This is the Most Holy Trinity Sunday. “The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with all of you.” In this greeting from today’s Second Reading, Paul is bringing forth the nature of God we believe in: Trinitarian God, one God in three persons, three persons in one God. As we delve throughout the Holy Scriptures both Old and New Testaments, we can see and experience the manifestation of one God in His three persons, the person of the Father, the person of the Son, and the person of the Holy Spirit. These three divine persons are not three Gods/gods but rather one God. Our Catholic faith is grounded in the teaching of Most Holy Trinity as we cement it in all simple and profound testimonies. We invoke the Most Holy Trinity in the famous prayer of the sign of the cross when we utter three persons of one God: In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. We use this formula in opening and closing our prayers. We use this formula in celebrating sacraments whether the sacrament of baptism, penance or matrimony. We use Trinitarian formula in all the blessings as we say, “I bless you in the Name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.” Three persons of God are attributed to everything we are and have. The person of the Father is associated with the work of creation, the person of the Son in the work of redemption, and the person of the Holy Spirit with the work of sanctification. Though this attribution, these three persons are working together jointly/together and not in separation because where the Father is, there the Son and the Holy Spirit are and the other way around. Knowing the role and the power of the Most Holy Trinity, we as Catholics always pray we great pride and reverence the prayer of: “Glory be to the Father and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen!

- Fr. Severine.
