There is an activity that some of us enjoy doing from time to time.
It is that of clearing out things –
we look at them, sort them out, discard some, and push others into another place.
We may get busy with that in the house, the garage, the garden shed, or simply an old cupboard.
It can be with items of clothing, utensils, tools, or the toys of the children.
But could we do the same with… our minds?
Would we be ready to do it also about…GOD?
Today’s feast of the Holy Trinity is perhaps the appropriate moment to do this:
Removing from our minds and hearts…
our false ideas, our incorrect concepts, our mistaken beliefs, about God –
all that is not according to what he, HIMSELF, says about who he is.
We hear him tell us in today’s 1st reading (Ex.34:4-6,8-9):
“The Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious,
longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth.”
This is what he is, what he wants to be, for each one of us.
If we could only understand this… and delight in his mercy and graciousness!
