God is Love

Today we celebrate the Solemnity of the Holy Trinity. Jesus reveals to us that God is three Persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit – and yet one God. It’s a mystery that is beyond human understanding. But what is revealed in the mystery is that at the heart of God is loving relationship. Together, the three Persons of the Trinity represent the fullness of love. The Father loves the Son, the Son loves the Father. The Holy Spirit is their love for each other. We are made in the image of a triune God; the Father, who created us, his Son who saved us, and the Holy Spirit who continues to guide us.

We are baptised as Christians in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and so our lives as disciples, and the life of the Church, should reflect the life of the Trinity. God empowers us to be creative like the Father, compassionate like his Son, and give our talents freely in the service of others like the Holy Spirit. In this way, we can reveal God’s love to the world.
