Three in One!

June 12, 2022

The traditional hymn, Holy God, We Praise Thy Name, has as its closing verse an acknowledgment of the mystery of the Holy Trinity, one God in three persons:
“Holy Father, Holy Son, Holy Spirit, 
Three we name thee, 
While in essence only One, 
Undivided God we claim thee, 
And adoring bend the knee, 
While we own the mystery.”
The mystery is reflected in our liturgical prayers. All of the longer endings of the formal prayers as found in the Sacramentary, after being addressed to the Father, conclude with the following: “We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever…” We begin the Holy Mass: “in the name of the father, Son and Holy Spirit…” We end the celebration with the blessing over the assembly invoking the Trinitarian formula.  
During the celebration of baptism, the candidates are immersed three times in the water of the font, or water is poured three times over each of the candidates while the Trinitarian formula is spoken: “I baptize you in the name of the father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.” 
The mystery of the Holy Trinity is described as the central mystery of our Christian faith, being the mystery of God’s very self, from where all of the other divine mysteries proceed.  
This mystery of God in the Holy Trinity is reflected in a way in our own human life, having been created in His image and likeness. Our uniqueness of persons is attributed to God’s oneness in being. We are all unique in our own way just as God is one in being. The plurality of persons in the Holy Trinity is also reflected in our social nature, in our need for one another and in our sense of community.
“One God, three persons, be near to us who are formed in your image. Dwell in us. We ask this, Father, Son, Holy Spirit, one God, living and true, forever and ever. Amen.”  
Healing Lines
“My father and I are one.” “The love of God has been poured out into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.” (Romans 5:5) How can your family offer love to those around you? In your neighborhood? In your school? In your workplace? In your church? Ask God to help you become aware of the gifts that the Spirit has given you which you could offer to your family, your congregation and the community as they seek to live and love and minister in non-violating ways.
