The Most Holy Trinity – Solemnity
First reading – Exodus 34:4-6,8-9
Moses called the Lord, “‘Lord, Lord, a God of tenderness and compassion, slow to anger, rich in kindness and faithfulness.’”. God of tenderness and compassion is God the Father who is tender and have compassion, is God the Son who expresses tenderness and compassion, is God the Holy Spirit who incarnates the tenderness and compassion in our life. The Holy Trinity is the God which is revealed to us by Jesus. He spoke about the Father with whom He is one and also about the Holy Spirit who is one with Him and with the Father. This is the revelation. We cannot know God other than through the revelation. At the same time, if God is love, God must be triune. The one who loves, the one who is love and the love between the one who love and the one who is love. This dynamism is the dynamism in the Trinity, in the Triune God. This is the God of tenderness and compassion, slow to anger, rich in kindness and faithfulness. Let’s reflect: how much I am affectionate to the Triune God in whom we believe?
