The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity

I will like to share a beautiful meditation about the presence of the Trinitarian mystery in history. This revelation was perfect in the New Testament, but was also anticipated in the old. The characteristics of God as a gentle Father, caring for the righteous children that came to Him. He was called: “Father of the fatherless, defender of widows” (Psalm 68, 6). What is beautiful is that is also considered as father of the rebel and sinners.

There are two prophetic pages with extraordinary beauty and intensity that shows this fatherly care of God the Father with His lost children in (Deuteronomy 32, 5). In these beautiful pages God shows in a clear way His constant presence in all of human history  (also for the same topic: Jeremiah 31, 9. 20 and Hosea 11, 1-3-4. 8)

Now, there needs to be a clear thought, God is not indifferent to our needs. Another proof is that He sent His Only Son, to whom we call “the center of History”. Todays Gospel reaffirms that in the dialogue between Jesus and Nicodemus in John 3, 16.

Something about The Holy Spirit, even though the Old Testament is not making a clear and explicit revelation of Him, we think we can attribute some saving initiatives: He helped the judges of Israel “The Spirit of the LORD came upon him, and he judged Israel. When he went out to war, the LORD delivered Cushan-risha-thaim, king of Aram, into his power, so that he made him subject” (Judges 3, 10); The Kings “Then Samuel, with the horn of oil in hand, anointed him in the midst of his brothers; and from that day on, the spirit of the LORD rushed upon David.”(1 Samuel 16, 13); but more than that He, The Holy Spirit is the one that helps the prophets of Israel, the ones in charge to reveal the glory of God that was not clear in the history.

Everyone of us, as we try with our imperfect intelligence to approach the mystery of the Holy Trinity, working in the history, need to make what Saint Gregory when he sings: Glory to God The father and the Son, King of the Universe. “Glory to The Holy Spirit worthy of praises and worship. The Trinity is one God who created and filled everything… He gives life everything with His spirit so that everyone may pay homage to our creator, unique cause of life… The rational creature needed to celebrate God like a great king and good father”
