Proverbs 8:22-31; Romans 5:1-5; John 16:12-15. Our first reading is a poetic reflection on the wisdom of God being present in all that God does. Saint Paul tells the Romans that they have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ. In the Gospel, Jesus tells his disciples that they will come to understand his teachings more fully when they atre filled with the Holy Spirit.

 

La Santissima Trinita
La Rivelazione insegna che Dio è Uno in tre Persone uguali e distinte, Padre, Filio e Spirito Santo, che si chinano sulla famiglia per aiutarla a essere con il Padre per la vita, con il Figlio per il servizion, con lo Spirito Santo per l’amore, la pace e la santità.

 

天主聖三節
我們常見天主聖三的圖像大多是:天主聖父是個莊嚴的老人,聖子是復活的基督,一個壯年的男人,坐着或站在聖父的右邊,而聖神通常以鴿子的形像出現,使人想到永恆
我們知道,天主創造萬物,也愛祂所創造的一切,但在所有受祂創造物之中,祂最愛人,亦即愛我們,原祖父母犯了罪、我們犯了罪,背叛了祂,祂仍舊愛我們。祂派祂的聖子來救贖我們,祂不斷召叫我們跟隨祂,祂要聖神指引我們明白真理。
天主三位一體是個奧跡,天主聖父、聖子、聖神是完全相等而各自分明的,「不是三個天主,而是一個天主有三位:同同體的三位。天主三位並不分割同一的天主性,而是每位都是整個的天主……父不是子,子不是父,聖神不是父或子」(《天主教要理》第253-254條)。沒有人能完全懂得這個奧跡,我們祇能以信德去面對。
我們的理智、我們的靈魂,我們的心祇能俯首欽崇敬拜天主三位一體,另一方面,我們也可以在日常生活中看到聖三的形像

以驚奇敬拜的心神看天主所創造的宇宙從而認識天主聖父;默想福音中耶穌的言行去認識,效法聖子;以專注的心神去諦聽聖神,服從祂的指引

 

From Fr. Gael: The Holy Trinity is a community of LOVE in one continuous flow. The Trinity dwells in the Church today, still flowing in LOVE. I believe that we still have not understood the power of that LOVE. This is what keeps us from in the deepest way becoming the Church Christ calls us to be. The FATHER created us out of LOVE. The SON redeemed us with LOVE. And the SPIRIT dwells in the Church with LOVE. The history of salvation is one in which humanity seems to have a difficulty with truly embracing the power of the LOVE of God. Yet that is our vocation, that is our destiny. The immensity of our vocation to LOVE begins with me, with my embracing and allowing this LOVE to permeate every fiber of my heart and soul. We cannot wait for others to embrace this call. We have to embrace it individually and thereby begin to form a critical mass that can make a difference. The Holy Trinity is a community of LOVE in one continuous flow. Let’s begin to flow with them.
