The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity

May 31, 2015

THE DESIRE OF OUR RELATIONSHIP

Based on the number of conversations I have had this week, it seems I should pick up today’s homily with the question that has caused so much discussion – the question I asked at Pentecost.

How are we going to be when we gather together? Is this a gathering of consumers or citizens? That is to ask, are we here to receive something very important, but then leave with little impact on our own identity? Or is our identity very much connected to this community or parish or gathering?

And if I am supposed to do something more, then what is that? What is the next step from going to Mass on Sundays?

The answer: the answer is found in our tradition, which is based on the Gospel. Last Sunday was Pentecost – the outpouring of the Holy Spirit – the power to go out and bear witness. What we are bearing witness to . . .we are remind by today’s Solemnity so that we don’t lose sight of it: the Holy Trinity. God.
