HOLY TRINITY, One God in three Persons.
The Christian mystery is the only one mystery, which humankind has ever discovered and believed throughout the history of human existence.
But how did we get this idea? First of all, no human reason can “rationally” say that one is three and three is one; it is above human reason. But where did we get this? First of all, we get it directly from Jesus Himself, who is one of the three. So, He knows exactly how things are in the Trinity. But also, we can gather it from the substantial nature of God, who is love. The great revelation, which is already present in the Old Testament is that God is a loving Father and that He does everything out of love. He created out of love, He redeemed out of love and He keeps everything alive out of love.
If we look into the nature of love itself, we gather that in order to exist, love needs someone else to love. Love is self-giving by nature; it cannot exist alone without someone that he can poor his love into. That someone also must be of the same substance. Look for instance in nature, we see that animals love animals, humans love humans, flowers love flowers. So, God needs another God (the Son) in order to exchange the same type of love that He is. Love is also by nature creative and fruitful. So, it comes that the two loves of Father and Son eternally generate another person equal in all virtues and qualities as their own being, which is the Holy Spirit. So eternally (= without beginning or end) the Father loves the Son and their love generates an equal being, the Holy Spirit.
Now you see that God can only be TRINITY; He is not a lonely God. As matter of fact, we can say that God is in the Relationship of the three. The Father is God, the first person of the Holy Trinity, but not only the Father is God; Jesus is God, the second person of the Holy Trinity, but not only Jesus is God; The Holy Spirit is God, the third person of the Holy Trinity, but not only He is God. God is in the relationship, in the circle of love between the three,
And now let us look at the Trinity on earth. God said: Let us make man according to our own image. So, if we look at mankind, we can see the image of God. We are not alone, we are a “limited” trinity. We are fruit of the love of God, manifested through the love of our father and our mother. So in heaven we have one God, on earth one family; in heaven we have a Father and on earth one father; in heaven we have one beloved, the Son, on earth we have our beloved mother and their fruitful love bring about another human being equal to them, the child, that is each one of us.
Today in the feast of our triune God, let us wonder at the mystery of the Holy Trinity and let us reproduce in our families the best image of the trinitarian love, which is our families: on earth as it is in heaven.
REFLECTION: UNDER PERSECUTION.
The Canadian Government wants to pass the Law on EUTHANASIA; In the US they are using COVIT-19 money to promote ABORTION; the GENDER IDEOLOGY is pushed to our children’s education; IN THE US we see anarchy and destruction because of an old wound of racism never healed; WHAT ARE WE CHRISTIANS TO DO?
1 – We have to work hard to protect and promote the christian values of LIFE. We have a chance now after the Pandemic and after the eye-opener of the peaceful demonstration to re-build our world in the way GOD INTENDED TO BE. Our world system has failed, let us go back to the drawing board and follow the script of the Creator! He must know how it works, since He is the one to create it in the first place.
2 – We Christians must be more radical in our lives. If Abortion is wrong, I will not do it. If Euthanasia is wrong, I will not do it; if Gender is a wrong ideology, I will not do it. If racism is wrong, I will not do it. We do not need the law of men, when we have the law of God. But we have to be determined to follow the Law of God and nothing else.
3 – If the government one day will impose on us laws that are against our conscience, then we have to be ready to die for it. After all this life is only temporary, but the other life is eternal; so we will choose the eternal life over and above our limited temporal life. We have to be ready even for that. But we will do it with joy, since we know that at the end we will get the better part.
