Good Day to Everyone, Greetings !!

Today we begin the second part of ordinary time in our Church calendar. It is also our first Sunday after our great Sunday of Pentecost.

Our theme for today’s reading is: THE MOST HOLY TRINITY — The Ineffable Mystery of God.

Ineffable means too great or extreme to be expressed or described in words. Indescribable, inexpressible.

I remember when during high school days, our cathechesis teacher was explaining the mystery of The Blessed Trinity. She said St. Thomas Aquinas in his mind was trying to understand the mystery of The Most Holy Trinity — God, The Father; God, The Son; and God, The Holy Spirit. Three person in one God. One day while walking by the shore, he saw a child transferring water from the sea by his bare hands into a hole he dug on the beach. He asked the child what was he doing. The child said, “I am transferring the sea to this hole.” St. Thomas explained to the child that the sea is too great to be transferred to a small hole. To which the child replied, “If it’s hard for the sea to be transferred to this hole, it’s much harder to understand the mystery of The Blessed Trinity.”

Fr. John Kersten of our Sunday Missal said having a person-to-person relationship with our Lord will give us a better idea of God that cannot be expressed in human terms. And ultimately, it is also this knowledge that will satisfy us.

More important than knowing about God, or the nature about God, because of the limited concept we are given as a human person, it is more important that we focus on our personal relationship with God, which is in the person of God, The Son, Jesus Christ.

Our personal relationship with our Lord will be enhanced if we always follow his commandments, most especially related to loving our neighbors. Also it will help much if we read about our Lord’s life in any of the four Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John.

Happy Sunday to everyone! Let’s greet everyone with best wishes in our hearts!
