Theme: Kingdom

Today we handle the message given to us in parables.

Theme: The Eucharist is our life

In one village there was a 6-year-old boy who refused to go to school. Each day, despite his protests, his mother walked him there, but as soon as she left him, he ran back home only to have his mother bring him back to the school again. No threat could convince him to change his mind. Finally, in desperation, his parents took him to their Catechist who said, ‘If the boy won’t listen to words, bring him to me’.

Theme:  Unity of God is our model

What is the meaning of the Trinity? This word originates from the Latin word ‘trini’ meaning ‘threefold’. The term was first used by Tertullian to denote the central doctrine of the Christian religion that in Jesus dwells the Father and the Holy Spirit not withstanding the order of terms. In each Person dwells the other two Persons of One God. This truth is supported by St. Paul when he teaches that “in Him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell bodily” Colossians 1:19;2:9. Each of these Persons is truly the same God and has all His infinite perfections; yet He is fully distinct of the other Persons. The one and only God is the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, all eternally begotten. Holy Trinity Sunday celebrates God who utterly transcendent has chosen to be God who is completely with and for us. All the same we must keep in mind that this definition is constituted for us but is not created by us because He is a mystery of faith.

Pentecost calls us to the realization that the center of all reality; the innermost heart of all infinity, the love of the all-holy God has become the center of our heart.
