Today in the Holy Catholic Church we celebrate the very essence of the Christian Faith…the Trinity…As Christians we believe that God is One Person in Three Natures…God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit...All equally God…A God that cannot be divided! As humans, we cannot wrap our heads around this…Yet, it is a tenant of our Faith that we Must believe… “In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit… Amen.“
The feast of the Holy Trinity reminds the Faithful that the Three Persons of God are Equal and cannot be separated from one another. In fact, each Sunday we are reminded of this very thing…in the Nicene Creed, and other prayers we recite on a regular basis, we are constantly declaring this to be True. And it is... But the feast of the Holy Trinity also reminds us that we have a dynamic God who loves us…and even though we are not able to comprehend His ultimate nature, we know that He is a loving God Who chooses to interact with us on a daily basis. The truth of the Holy Trinity shows us, that God is a loving God, Who is willing to become as we are…so that we may become like Him. God offered us Himself in the person of Jesus, so that we could be fully redeemed. As St. Athanasius said, “that which has not been assumed has not been redeemed.” If God had not come to us as Jesus, mankind could not have been redeemed…because only God Himself was capable of truly redeeming humanity. No other creature could have done this. Only one God…God, the Father…God, the Son…and God, the Holy Spirit...So today, as we contemplate the Holy Trinity, let us remember that the Trinity is at the very heart of our salvation.
