Jn 16: 12-15

‘I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own, but will speak whatever he hears, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. He will glorify me, because he will take what is mine and declare it to you. All that the Father has is mine. For this reason I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you.

Three in One—and us

The feast of the Most Holy Trinity is the ultimate feast. We have feasts for saints and blessed, feasts for the Blessed Virgin, feasts for Jesus; but there is only one for God. Moreover, this feast is not connected to any historical event but is based purely on doctrine.

Over time the Trinity has revealed itself to the human race. In the Old Testament God the Father revealed himself to the Israelites. In the New Testament, Jesus, the Son of the Father, revealed himself to the Jews.  At Pentecost the Holy Spirit revealed himself to the apostles. The Holy Spirit animated the early Church and continues to animate the Church today.

Today we experience the Trinity in our own lives. We have experienced the love of God the Father in creation; we have experienced Christ in the Eucharist; and we have experienced the fellowship of the Holy Spirit among us in the Church.  Every time we make the sign of the cross, we profess our belief in the Trinity.

 —Fr. Bernard Streicher, S.J., a long-time faculty member at St. Ignatius High School, Cleveland OH, now lives at the Colombiere Jesuit Community, Clarkston, MI.

Prayer

Most Holy Trinity, we thank you. Through the Holy Spirit we possess the Son,
Then, through the Son, we ascend to the Father. Amen.

—Fr. Bernard Streicher, S.J.
