Holy Trinity: Fr. JT’s Homily
SOLEMNITY OF THE MOST HOLY TRINITY
Fr. JT’s Homily
It’s Memorial Day weekend in our beloved country, the USA. Before we proceed with this Holy Mass, let us observe a minute prayerful silence for our fallen heroes.
Lord of life, we remember the people who sacrificed, served and died for our country. We recall their courage and bravery with profound gratitude. And we will never forget!
May you, Lord of life, continue to bless our land with freedom, peace and prosperity. Amen!
the Church celebrates the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity. I have preached on the theology of the Most Holy Trinity before and will preach on it again sometime. Let me in this homily dwell on the ecclesiology of the Most Holy Trinity, i.e., the practical implications of the dogma on the Trinity.
You know, of course, that we have been baptized in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. This Most Holy Trinity was visibly and tangibly represented at the baptism of Jesus with water from the Jordan river by the Voice, the Dove and the Son. Our lives have been consecrated to the Most Holy Trinity from the very moment of baptism.
Pope Francis describes the Most Holy Trinity as the very foundation of our communion in the Church of Christ. He states (and I quote): “The Trinity is at the very foundation and core of our faith....Trinity is a family of three persons, the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, which is not closed in on itself but open....The Trinitarian horizon of communion embraces us all and encourages us to live in love, in fraternal shearing and in solidarity.... The universal Church is also a family of many Nations that lives this communion of love, fraternal shearing and solidarity” (unquote).
Dear friends, it is this trinitarian communion of love, sharing and solidarity that propels us as christians to do all that we do in the church.
It is this trinitarian communion of love, sharing and solidarity that inspires all parishes and collaboratives in the RCAB and in churches all over the world to witness to the risen Lord and identity with his universal mission.
It is this all embracing love, sharing and solidarity that moves us to do all we do here in our own St. Isidore Parish to make our parish a home of faith, love and service. Thank you Clergy, Staff, Councils, amazing team of volunteers, all parish ministries and all parishioners for all we do here in our Parish for God, for the church and for our faith community as we express this love, fraternal sharing and solidarity.
May the family of the Most Blessed Trinity to whom we have been consecrated continue to inspire our actions in all that we do as individual christians and as family of St. Isidore Parish.
And may the Almighty God continue to bless + you, Father, Son & Holy Spirit. Amen!
St. Isidore, Pray for Us!
