The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity

God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him will not be condemned, but whoever does not believe has already been condemned, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.

The Holy Trinity loves us. The Father loves us enough to create us in His Divine Image and give us His only Beloved Son so that we might be forgiven of our sins and have eternal life. The Beloved Son loves us enough to create the Church as his bride and give us the Good News and the Holy Spirit so that we might follow his Way, Truth, and Life. The Holy Spirit creates the traditions of the Church and gives us every grace and inspiration we need to know, love, and serve God and His children. God did not create us, provide for us, or send us forth into the world to be sinners or to be condemned. He created us, provided for us, and sent us forth to be saints and to have eternal life.

How do we respond to the love the Holy Trinity has shown us? What can we do with the gifts He has given us? How can we live our lives in imitation of the love the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit have for each other and for us?

O Lord, we believe in you and the mystery of the Holy Trinity.
