Today we are celebrating the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity. God has revealed himself as a Trinity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. There are three distinct Persons in one God, sharing the same Divine Nature - co-equal and co-eternal. The Councils of Nicaea and Constantinople defined it as a dogma of Christian Faith.

Trinity Sunday??. Holy Water Stoups

Centuries ago, there were hollowed out basins in the entrances of private homes and the first Christian basilicas. You could wash yourself before entering the sacred place ? God's house. The washing became symbolic as numbers grew and the faithful started to dip their fingers in the Holy water and sprinkle themselves, praying the Sign of the Cross. The water reminds us that we have been baptised and belong to Christ. We have been washed clean of sin and our lives are to show it. Think of this as you bless yourself this weekend.

Restoring all through Humility - Pope Francis

Humility is the "great antagonist of the most mortal of sins, namely arrogance and whereas pride and arrogance make us think we are greater than we are, "humility restores everything to its correct dimension: we are wonderful creatures, but we are limited, with qualities and flaws. In the Beatitudes, Jesus starts with the humble, "Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of Heaven" (Mt 5:3), followed by the meek, merciful, pure of heart, all stemming from an "inner sense of smallness."

Prayer for St Patrick's on Trinity Sunday.

O most Holy Trinity, bless St. Patrick's with the fruits of Your Spirit: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.

Glory be to the Father, who created us, making us in the image and likeness of God. Glory be to the Son, who died for us. Glory be to the Holy Spirit, who renews us. All praise and honour and glory are Yours now and forever, O most Holy Trinity! Amen

The Most Holy Trinity - Year B.

Readings: Deuteronomy 4:32-34,39-40; Psalm 32:4-6,9,18-20; Romans 8:14-17; Matthew 28:16-20

First Reading: Moses reiterates that Yahweh is the only God. He recounts the wonders God has done for Israel. Israel's fidelity to the Lord will make their life secure. However, in the initial years, Israel had great challenges and struggles to sustain their belief in the One, True and Invisible God. Moses enumerates the reasons to be proud of their faith and the differences from their pagan neighbours.

Second Reading: St Paul exhorts us to lead our lives in the Spirit. He talks about the relationship of the Father, the Son and the Spirit that we experience with God. God is One but three persons. God the Father "Abba" who is our creator. God the Son, the Christ, who saved us and made us coheirs to the Kingdom of God. God the Holy Spirit through whom we have been adopted and sanctified to live as children of God.

Gospel Reading: Jesus sends the Apostles to make disciples of all nations. Jesus commissions them to baptise and teach. Jesus had already sent the twelve Apostles to preach the Kingdom of God and to heal. Formerly the Twelve were sent only to the House of Israel. Now, the Eleven are told to go to all nations. The mission of Jesus is now extended to all people. The Church has a mission to preach the Gospel to the whole world.

As baptised Christians, we share in the life of the blessed Trinity and seek to invite others to share in God's very own life of love. The salvation in Christ is an all-inclusive one so that all may have eternal life. Jesus defined eternal life saying, "This is eternal life, that they may know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom you have sent." John 17:3.

Responsorial Psalm: Happy the people the Lord has chosen as his own
