In His Image and Likeness

June 4, 2023

The Book of Genesis mentions that we are created in God’s image and likeness. It somehow describes God’s oneness as well as God’s diversity in three persons as manifested in our human condition.  
We believe that God’s oneness is also manifested in the uniqueness of each and every human person. DNA technology has reinforced this singular uniqueness of each human being, having his or her own character with its own idiosyncrasies. Our social nature as human beings is also rooted in God’s Trinitarian nature. Our sociability manifests God’s three-ness as persons. Our communitarian spirit belies our sharing of God’s plurality as persons.  
The unity and diversity that is found in our communities is the manifestation of God’s oneness in three diverse persons, united by the principle of selfless love.  
Throughout the history of our salvation, God has gradually prepared us by  word and action for the ultimate disclosure of Himself as Trinity: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. In a very special way, the mystery of the Holy Trinity was revealed in the person, words and works of Jesus Christ. He revealed His Father as his Father and “our” Father and Himself as God’s eternal and divine Son. He also made known a third divine person, the Holy Spirit, the lord and giver of life, whom the Father and He, as risen Lord, would send to His Church. 
At the beginning of every Mass, the celebrant invokes the Trinitarian greeting: The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all! He also ends up with the blessing invoking the three persons in one God.
As we celebrate Holy Trinity Sunday, let us celebrate our uniqueness as individual persons and our unity as community which manifest the diversity of the three persons in one God. Let us celebrate our being created in God’s image and likeness. 
Healing Lines
God is available to forgive all our transgressions and to heal us. If we have been the aggressive one in our families we can seek out the resources available in our community. His help will support us in our journey. Take responsibility and be the model for your children and others around you.

We encourage full, conscious, and active participation through the Holy Scriptures, Rituals of the Mass, and Prayer using dialogue, singing, activities and making friends with their fellow little brothers and sisters in Christ. In this way we strengthen and develop in relationship with Jesus who lives in the heart of all God’s children.
