“In the midst of pandemic, injustice, and unrest, we celebrate Trinity Sunday. It is a day when we focus on the most fundamental teaching of the Christian faith, namely, that there is only One God and that God is a Trinity of Persons, God – Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Trinity is not myth, a riddle, or an insoluble mathematical puzzle. We know of the mystery of the Trinity only because God has granted us, so to speak, a window into his inner life. Even so, we could never pretend to grasp this mystery in its fullness. After writing a brilliant treatise on the Trinity, St. Augustine concluded it by saying: ‘Among the many things I have said, I am sure and I declare that I have said nothing that is worthy of this supreme, ineffable Trinity’ (On the Trinity, I; XV). Augustine’s words are an admonition to every Trinity Sunday homilist, including me. Let me just say that, with all my heart, I believe in the Most Holy Trinity. I have staked my life and pinned my hopes on the living and true God, the One God in Three Persons. It is my fervent prayer that, in God’s grace, you can make the same profession of faith.
“By professing our faith in a God who exceeds everything we could imagine, we resist the temptation to create for ourselves a god designed to meet our needs, a god who is a mere projection of our desires for a better life and a better world.”
