Vocation Meditation - May 18
Trinity Sunday

Jesus said to Nicodemus: "God loved the world so much that He gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him may not perish but may have eternal life. "Indeed, God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through Him."

The mystery of the Blessed Trinity is the greatest revelation Jesus, the Son of God, has given to the apostles and to the world. In the Gospels, Jesus spoke about this in varied times, unfolding Its mystery and naming them for us as Father, Son and the Spirit of Love. For this, Jesus came that our knowledge of God and life be complete. The apostolic Letters and the Epistles deepened this truth and the Church penned its importance in our Creed. This truth is central in our faith. The Blessed Trinity is God in 3 Persons, each Person is distinct, is Co-Equal in Divinity, Power and Holiness, Co-Eternal and Uncreated. Out of gratuitous love, this God Jesus revealed, gives us existence, shares His divine life and gives us the promise of eternal life with Him. In the Scriptures, the whole of Creation, Incarnation, Redemption and the Sanctification of the world are all the work, done together by our Triune God. The Blessed Trinity, then, is for us the Icon of Love, Communion and Community.
