One day, I heard someone say with much conviction: “We must let God be God!”
Perhaps this is what today’s celebration is meant to remind us of: Let God be God…
Accept that God is…
so much greater than we can picture,
so much wiser than we can understand,
so much more powerful than we can realize,
so much more surprising, than we can imagine,
so much beyond all that our human mind can perceive…
Today’s feast of the Holy Trinity is the celebration that:
God is a Father relating in a unique way to his Son, a relationship lived within their common Spirit.
We cannot imagine, understand or realize this – no human being can.
But this statement must be corrected –
one human being has understood: Jesus, he who was truly one of us,
While we do not understand God,
because of Jesus, through him, we share in God’s life.
As we are told in the 2nd reading, in the letter that Paul wrote to the Christians of Rome (Romans 5:1-5):
“God’s love has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit,
who has been given to us.”
This reveals the real meaning of what we believe,
of who God is,
and of what he has made us to be!
