Solemnity of the Holy Trinity
THE LITTLE FISH
"From of old I was poured forth, at the first, before the earth." – Proverbs 8:23
One story from Anthony de Mello's The Song of the Bird goes like this:
"Excuse me," said the little fish,
"can you tell me how to find this
thing called the ocean?"
"The ocean," said the older fish, "is
the thing you are in now."
"Oh, this? But this is water," said
the disappointed fish as he swam to
Sometimes, we are just like the little fish, going around trying to find God. What we don't immediately recognize is that God is everywhere. He is the Creator who made everything that surrounds us, from the vast universe to the tiniest grain of sand. He is the Christ who emptied Himself to become like us, made of flesh and blood, vulnerable and weak. He is the Spirit that dwells within us, constantly guiding us though we may choose not to heed Him.
Aren't we lucky that wherever we look, be it our surroundings, our fellow men, or our own selves, we see the reflection of God?Cecilia Lim (email@example.com)
"Stop searching, little fish. There isn't anything to look for. All you have to do is look." (Anthony de Mello)
You are my God! In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.

This text seems to be something like a hymn to the glory and beauty of creation. As we celebrate Trinity Sunday we celebrate the basis of all life — God,three persons in one. How do we explain this? We do not, as we cannot! We simply have faith and live the truth of His love for us in first creating and then redeeming us.
22 Thus says the wisdom of God: "The LORD possessed me, the beginning of his ways, the forerunner of his prodigies of long ago; 23 from of old I was poured forth, at the first, before the earth. 24 When there were no depths I was brought forth, when there were no fountains or springs of water; 25 before the mountains
were settled into place, before the hills, I was brought forth; 26 while as yet the earth and the fields were not made, nor the first clods of the world. 27 "When the Lord established the heavens I was there, when he marked out the vault over the face of the deep; 28 when he made firm the skies above, when he fixed fast the foundations of the earth; 29 when he set for the sea its limit,
so that the waters should not transgress his command; 30 then was I beside him as his craftsman, and I was his delight day by day, playing before him all the while, 31 playing on the surface of his earth; and I found delight in the human race."
P S A L M
Psalm 8:4-5, 6-7, 8-9 (2a)
R: O Lord, our God, how wonderful your name in all the earth!
3  When I behold your heavens, the work of your fingers,the moon and the stars which you set in place — 4  what is man that you should be mindful of him, or the son of man that you should care for him? (R) 5  You have made him little less than the angels, and crowned him with glory and honor. 6  You have given him rule over the works of your hands, putting all things under his feet. (R) 7  All sheep and oxen, yes, and the beasts of the field, 8  the birds of the air, the fishes of the sea, and whatever swims the paths of the seas. (R)
St. Paul knows that the love of God is the basis of everything that is good. It is the Holy Spirit who has been entrusted with the task of continuing to make known this truth to us. The Father creates the truth; Jesus reveals the truth of His love and the Spirit maintains this revelation for all eternity. Sounds a bit complicated, but it is not. Love is only as complicated as you want it to be.
1 Brothers and sisters: Therefore, since we have been justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom we have gained access by faith to this grace in which we stand, and we boast in hope of the glory of God. 3 Not only that, but we even boast of our afflictions, knowing that affliction produces endurance, 4 and endurance, proven character, and proven character, hope, 5 and hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.
G O S P E L
The Holy Spirit is sometimes spoken of in theological circles as the love of the Father and Son made manifest. That is, their love for each other is so great that it takes on its own being. God calls us to experience and share in that love through faith in Jesus Christ.
12 Jesus said to his disciples: "I have much more to tell you, but you cannot bear it now. 13 But when he comes, the Spirit of truth, he will guide you to all truth. He will not speak on his own, but he will speak what he hears, and will declare to you the things that are coming. 14 He will glorify me, because he will take from what is mine and declare it to you. 15 Everything that the Father has is mine; for this reason I told you that he will take from what is mine and declare it to you."
t h i n k : The Holy Spirit has been entrusted with the task of continuing to make known to us the truth that God's love is the basis of everything that is good.

FEAST AND CHALLENGE
We celebrate today the deepest and greatest mystery of our Christian faith: the mystery of the Most Holy Trinity.
First of all, the mystery of the Trinity tells us that there is only one God. He was the God of the Old Testament and still is the God of the New Testament. He was God before anything existed, He is God today, and will still be God until the end of time.
Second, though He is the one and only God, He is not alone. There are Three Persons in One God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Divinity, however, is not divided into three. The fullness of divinity resides in each of the Three. Each has His own role in the economy of salvation and in sustaining the whole of creation: the Father creates, the Son redeems and the Holy Spirit sanctifies. However, when each fulfils the role proper to Him, all Three Persons are actively present.
Third, the mystery of the Most Holy Trinity commands us to mirror God in His being a community. We are different from one another but we are one body with Jesus as Head. We should celebrate our differences and contribute our unique gifts to our Christian community.
God is a community where mutual love respect and collaboration of Three Persons reign. They do not contrive against one another. They congregate as one God. And we, together with all of creation, benefit from the love, respect and collaboration They have for and with one another. God, a community in Himself, is not a community for Himself only but for others, for us.
The same should be for our community, whether we are referring to our parish or even the universal Church herself. We must live for others, i.e., all of humanity. The graces of our unity, respect, collaboration and love should continually flow in and out of our community. We are Church not only in the world but also for the world.
Today is thefiesta of God Himself and so it is our fiesta as well. Let us face and take the challenge of this feast: Mirror the community of the One God in and for our one, but fragmented, world. Fr. Bobby Titco
The Church is the icon of the Trinity.
Father, Son and Spirit, one God, I adore You. I love You. I praise You. With the Church, may I help reflect Your image in the world, contributing whatever I can in advancing Your reign on earth. Amen.
St. Hubert, pray for us.
