The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity

The Most Holy Trinity

This Sunday, the Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity. If we are asked today about the Most Holy Trinity some of us may be able to answer that it is the fusion of the three persons into one God. Some of us may not be able to answer because we don’t have any knowledge about the Holy Trinity. It doesn’t matter anymore if we are able to answer or not. What is important is that we believe this seemingly unbelievable doctrine of the Church.
The Trinity represents love and unity; it shows us that the impossible will become possible for so long as there is love and unity amongst us. What makes a family happily united? What makes the Church organization successful? It’s love! Love that forgives, love that is willing to sacrifice, love that is honest and love that is humble. This kind of pure love is the embodiment of the Holy Trinity and that is why they’re able to coexist as one God even if they are actually three persons.
In our Gospel, Jesus is commissioning the eleven apostles to go and make disciples of all nations and baptize them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit (Matthew 28:19). What compelled them to faithfully follow this command of Jesus even at the cost of their lives? It’s the same Trinitarian love.
This Trinitarian love is what is presently missing right now: in many families, in many Church communities/organizations and in many governments around the world. Why? Because there are many broken families, there are many Church organization/communities that can’t agree to move on as one. And there are many governments around the world that fail to address the needs of their people.
So, our reflection is: is there a solid manifestation of the Trinitarian love in our family? Why? How do we want to go about doing this?
Fr. Aegidius Warsito SCJ
