Today Christians mark the Solemnity of the Holy Trinity. Having searched for something erudite but understandable to say about this feast that speaks of an incomprehensible truth, I will say only what I have found to be helpful in the description (not to say definition) of the Trinitarian God, *the Three-in-One, *the Creator, Redeemer, Sanctifier, *the First Cause who manifested this and every other universe, who became incarnate as a human being to teach us how to live and die, and who finally left but remains in Spirit to guide our walk through this world.
You see how voluminous it could become if I launched into theological constructs or philosophical treatises. Because that is all “above my pay grade” and would not serve here anyway, I prefer to consider this mystery of faith for its meaning in my own life and offer only the words of the Gospel Acclamation for today as homage on this feast.
Glory be to God who is, who was and who is to come! Alleluia! Alleluia! (RV 1:8)
