Trinity Sunday Year B (31st May, 2015)

Theme: The Mystery of unity of God is our gift

What is the meaning of the Trinity? Today is Trinity Sunday but remember that every Sunday is a feast day of the Trinity and an occasion to celebrate one God. What does the word ‘Trinity’ mean? Does it mean that God is a mystery? God is visible, yet mystery of faith! The root of the word “Trinity” originates from the Latin word ‘trini’ which means ‘three each,’ or ‘threefold.’ The term has been used as early as the days of Tertullian to denote the central doctrine of the Christian religion. Trinity means that in Jesus dwells the Father and the Holy Spirit. And the same can be said about the Father and the Holy Spirit. In each one dwells the other two Persons of God.

Theme: Holy Spirit, teach us today

The day will come, said Teilhard de Chardin, when after harnessing space, the winds, the tides and gravitation, we shall harness for God the energies of love and on that day; for the second time in the history of the world we shall have discovered fire. In a sense the annual feast of Pentecost is another opportunity placed in the path for discovering and participating in the ever-present fire which is God’s love. Pentecost rounds out and climaxes the Easter event.

All that we have remembered and celebrated, that is, Jesus’ saving death, his resurrection and ascension to glory, all of these sacred events took place so that the Holy Spirit might be unleashed upon the world. Pentecost calls us to the realization that the center of all reality; the innermost heart of all infinity, the love of the all-holy God has become our center and our heart. Pentecost confirms that God is with us as gift without reserve. This gift is joy, freedom, knowledge and peace of the divine life.

Theme: Be a people of Hope

Whether in your mind you are today you are celebrating the feast of Jesus’ ascension into eternal glory or not, the essential message of today’s celebration is that it is the inherent responsibility as disciples of Jesus to continue his mission. This responsibility has been clearly articulated by St Mark, who told his own, go into the whole world; proclaim the good news to all creation.

The same affirmation is reflected in the question of the two messengers dressed in white on the mount of Jesus’ ascension that you peopleofGalilee, why do you stand here lookingup at the skies? Rather than remain in the relative safety of that mountaintop, searching the heavens for the first glimpse of the returning Jesus, you are expected to walk down the mountain and start participating directly into the fray of the human experience by speak God’s good news with your lips and lives.

Theme:  Holy Sprit as source ofmutual love

As the early groups of Christian disciples grew and developed, they had to learn to cope with the ordinary frictions which were an inevitable aspect of inter-personal relationships. People of diverse character and background with their qualities, flaws and differing likes and dislikes had to learn to relate to one another in mutual charity in order for Christianity to thrive. All the members had to enter into the symbiosis which we call community. The Oxford English Dictionary defines symbiosis as “a mutual interactive relationship between two living things, usually to the advantage of both.” The created universe is rife with fascinating examples of symbiotic relationships.

 Theme:  Unbreakable bonds

Last week we were invited to reflect on our oneness with Christ and on our universal character by considering both architectural referring to cornerstone and pastoral imagery in form of one flock and one shepherd. This week with imagery drawn from agrarian life referring to the vine and its branches hence we are challenged to consider even more deeply the mystery of our union with and in Jesus Christ. A familiar and striking image, drawn directly from the terraced hills of Israel and Judah, the vine was a motif popular among the Hebrew prophets for describing the relationship between God and Israel.
