Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity

DESIGNED FOR RELATIONSHIP

At the heart of our readings and celebration today is “relationship”.  Take a moment:  tell me 3 things that you desire out of a relationship with a friend or loved one?

Now what do you desire out of your relationship with God?

And what do you think God desires out of relationship with you?

When we speak of the Trinity, we speak of the very nature of God.  Should it surprise us that we find it so difficult to rationalize?

Too often we think of God as a thing or as hierarchy.  But really God is family; communion; relationship.   God is the essence of relationship – and relationship simply understood as being for the other.
