The Most Holy Trinity – Solemnity

11 June 2017

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ

For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world,

but that the world might be saved through him.

Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 3:16-18.

God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him.
Whoever believes in him will not be condemned, but whoever does not believe has already been condemned, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.

Commentary of the day

Saint Ephrem (c.306-373),

Deacon in Syria, Doctor of the Church
Hymn on the Trinity

“One only God, one only Lord, in the Trinity of their persons and unity of their nature” (Preface)

Refrain: Blessed be the One who sends you!

Take as your symbols: the sun for the Father,
light for the Son,
heat for the Holy Spirit.

Though he is only one in being
we see him in trinity.
Who, indeed, can grasp the inexplicable?

He who is unique is also multiple: one is formed of three
and three of one –
What great mystery! What manifest wonder!

The sun is distinct from its shining
even while adhering to it,
for its ray is also sun.

Yet no one speaks of two suns
even though,  here below,
the sun’s ray is also sun.

No more do we say there would be two Gods.
Our Lord himself, is he not God?
He is also raised above all creatures.

Who can show how or where
the sun’s ray and its heat are joined,
free as they are?

Neither separated nor confused,
united and yet distinct,
free but bound: O wonder!

Who, by studying them, can master them?
Yet do they not seem
so simple, so uncomplicated?…

Whereas the sun remains whole above,
its brilliance and heat are a clear symbol
for those of us below.

Indeed, its shining has come down to earth
and remains in our sight
as though clothing our flesh.

When our eyes close like those of the dead
at the time of sleeping, it leaves them
who will later awake.

But how light penetrates the eye
no one knows.
Even so was it with our Lord in the womb…

Even so, our Saviour
put on a human body in all its weakness
that he might come to sanctify the world.

Yet, when the sun’s ray returns to its source,
it has still not been separated
from the one who gave it birth.

It leaves its heat to those below
as our Lord left the Holy Spirit
to the disciples.

Consider these images within the created world;
as for the Three, allow yourself no doubt
lest you be lost!

I have clarified for you what was obscure:
how Three form but One,
A Trinity composing one single essence!

The Most Holy Trinity –

Solemnity

THE MOST HOLY TRINITY

         The mystery of the Most Holy Trinity is the central mystery of the Christian faith and of Christian life. God alone can make it known to us by revealing himself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.    
         The Incarnation of God’s Son reveals that God is the eternal Father and that the Son is consubstantial with the Father, which means that, in the Father and with the Father the Son is one and the same God.     The mission of the Holy Spirit, sent by the Father in the name of the Son (⇒ Jn 14:26) and by the Son “from the Father” (⇒ Jn 15:26), reveals that, with them, the Spirit is one and the same God. “With the Father and the Son he is worshipped and glorified” (Nicene Creed).    
        “The Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father as the first principle and, by the eternal gift of this to the Son, from the communion of both the Father and the Son” (St. Augustine, De Trin. 15, 26, 47).    
        By the grace of Baptism “in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit”, we are called to share in the life of the Blessed Trinity, here on earth in the obscurity of faith, and after death in eternal light (cf. Paul VI, CPG).   
        “Now this is the Catholic faith: We worship one God in the Trinity and the Trinity in unity, without either confusing the persons or dividing the substance; for the person of the Father is one, the Son’s is another, the Holy Spirit’s another; but the Godhead of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit is one, their glory equal, their majesty coeternal” (Athanasian Creed).    
        Inseparable in what they are, the divine persons are also inseparable in what they do. But within the single divine operation each shows forth what is proper to him in the Trinity, especially in the divine missions of the Son’s Incarnation and the gift of the Holy Spirit.

Saint of the day

St. Barnabas,

Apostle

SAINT BARNABAS
Apostle

        We read that in the first days of the Church, “the multitude of believers had but one heart and one soul; neither did any one say that aught of the things which he possessed was his own.” Of this fervent company, one only is singled out by name, Joseph, a rich Levite, from Cyprus. “He having land sold it, and brought the price and laid it at the feet of the apostles.” They now gave him a new name, Barnabas, the son of consolation.

        He was a good man, full of the Holy Ghost and of faith, and was soon chosen for an important mission to the rapidly-growing Church of Antioch. Here he perceived the great work which was to be done among the Greeks, so he hastened to fetch St. Paul from his retirement at Tarsus.

        It was at Antioch that the two Saints were called to the apostolate of the Gentiles, and hence they set out together to Cyprus and the cities of Asia Minor. Their preaching struck men with amazement, and some cried out, “The gods are come down to us in the likeness of men,” calling Paul Mercury, and Barnabas Jupiter.

        The Saints travelled together to the Council of Jerusalem, but shortly after this they parted. When Agabus prophesied a great famine, Barnabas, no longer rich, was chosen by the faithful at Antioch as most fit to bear, with St. Paul, their generous offerings to the Church of Jerusalem. The gentle Barnabas, keeping with him John, surnamed Mark, whom St. Paul distrusted, betook himself to Cyprus, where the sacred history leaves him; and here, at a later period, he won his martyr’s crown.
