Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity

Deuteronomy4: 32-34.39-40 Romans 8: 14-17 Mathew28:16-20

Theme: The Bond of Love


Today is the solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity. That is the Solemnity of the three persons in one God. The solemnity that brings out the unity and bond of love that exists among the three persons that makes up the Trinity: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. However, sometimes there is some kind of conflict and confusion when people begin to talk about the Trinity as something that cannot be comprehended by human reasoning. But that is not entirely true, because there is something about the Trinity that is known, at least their bond of love and unity.


It is from that point of view that I am going to reflect on an aspect of the Trinity that will be enriching to us as children of God. This has to do with the bond of love and unity that exists amongst the three persons in one God. When we look at the three persons in one God, we see how they respect each other. We see the bond of love that exists among them. It is because of this love that the Father sent his Son Jesus, and that Jesus was willing to take the human flesh to go to the Cross for you and me. It is this bond of love that continues to bind them together and strengthen their union. As Christians, we must strive to emulate this wonderful attribute of the Trinity in our human relationships.


The community of God’s people needs this same spirit of love and unity that will always guide and direct all that we do as the people of God.  This bond will bring forth peace and unity in our families, communities and the society at large. This aspect of the Trinity that is communitarian is something that is worthy of emulation and will go a long way in helping to restore peace in the society. We have all it takes to live it out in our daily lives, if only we will let go and let God. What is needed is our willingness to cooperate with the grace of God and live like true children of God that we are called to be. This will be made easier if we take seriously, the Scriptures, and the doctrines and teachings of the Church.


We have all it takes to do it. Today there is lot of division and disunity among Christians, let alone other religions. Even among Christians, unity and love is scarcely found. We are all encouraged today to bring down the barriers that separate us and build more bridges that will unite us as people of God; not minding the denomination we belong to. The most important thing is that we are all children of God.


God continues to admonish us in his word, in the Sacraments of the Church, and in the Teachings of the church. That is why we must continue to cooperate with God’s grace and ensure that we practice all these in our lives to make an impact in the world in which we live; by establishing God’s kingdom here on earth. May God grant us the grace to practice this communitarian spirit that brings forth peace, love, joy, happiness and unity, in the name of the father and of the son and of the holy spirit, Amen. Peace be with you
