SOLEMNITY OF THE MOST HOLY TRINITY      2019-06-16

 

***1st Reading***

 Prov 8:22–31

Yahweh created me first, at the beginning of his works. He formed me from of old, from eternity, even before the earth.

The abyss did not exist when I was born,  the springs of the sea had not gushed forth, the mountains were still not set in their place nor the hills, when I was born before he made the earth or countryside, or the first grains of the world’s dust.

 I was there when he made the skies and drew the earth’s compass on the abyss, when he formed the clouds above and when the springs of the ocean emerged; when he made the sea with its limits, that it might not overflow.

When he laid the foundations of the earth, I was close beside him, the designer of his works,  and I was his daily delight, forever playing in his presence, playing throughout the world and delighting to be with humans.

 

***2nd Reading ***

 Rom 5:1–5

 By faith we have received true righteousness, and we are at peace with God, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Through him we obtain this favor in which we remain and we even boast to expect the Glory of God.

 Not only that,  we also boast even in trials, knowing that trials produce patience, from patience comes merit, merit is the source of hope, and hope does not disappoint us,   because the Holy Spirit has been given to us,pouring into our hearts the love of God.

 

**** Gospel ****

Jn 16:12–15

  “I still have many things to tell you, but you cannot bear them now.      When he, the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into the whole truth.

For he will not speak of his own authority, but will speak what he hears, and he will tell you about the things which are to come. He will take what is mine and make it known to you; in doing this, he will glorify me. All that the Father has is mine; for this reason, I told you that the spirit will take what is mine, and make it known to you.

     

Reflection gospel:

READ: For Catholics and other religious persuasions, the belief in the Holy Trinity is non-negotiable. The word Trinity is a simple theological term which captures the mystery of God. we all believe in one God, but in God, we also believe there are three divine persons, namely, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. They are all divine and united as one community.

REFLECT: The belief in the Holy Trinity gives us the model for forming ecclesial communities, religious congregations and the Church as a whole. We recognize the existence of the Trinity every time we make the sign of the cross, recite the Glory, Apostle’s Creed and many other prayers.

PRAY: Lord, Triune God, help me to live your mystery. I can best be a Christian if I believe in you. My Catholic faith falls apart once I deny your existence. The Bible too becomes meaningless, if I do not appreciate your mystery.

ACT: Show that you really believe in the Holy Trinity by properly making the sign of the cross and reciting the prayers taught by the Church. Show also your believe by being in communion with the parish where you belong. You cannot live your faith alone.

天主教台灣地區主教團秘書長─陳科神父表示:天主教的立場,婚姻是一男一女的結合,同婚釋憲結果,將造成國家社會和人民間的撕裂、對立,雖然目前的婚姻制度並不是完美,但值得維護。他也呼籲青年學子關心、面對社會議題,尤其家庭與婚姻的相關議題,因為未來的青年會直接面對解構式或結構式的婚姻選擇題。在聖神的風吹拂下,教宗方濟各巧合的將2018世界主教會議的主題:「青年人、信仰與聖召辨明」,德肋莎姆姆也曾說:「如果你要改變世界,要先愛你的家庭,有安定的家庭才能建構美好世界。」(圖:真理)

教宗方濟各於2017年4月15日復活節文告中提到:我們眾人若順從罪惡驅使,便會偏離正道,走上流浪之途,有如迷途的羔羊。可是天主,我們的善牧親自來尋找我們,而且為了拯救我們,自我貶抑直至接受十字架的恥辱。如此,我們今天才能宣報說:「善牧復活了,祂曾為自己的羊犧牲了性命。阿肋路亞!」世世代代以來,基督善牧不辭勞苦地尋找我們,祂這些在現世荒漠中迷失的弟兄們。祂藉著苦難的標記,慈悲聖愛的創傷,吸引我們走上祂的道路——生命的道路。今天,祂也背負著我們如此眾多受到各種罪惡壓迫的弟兄姊妹……。 (圖文資料來源:梵蒂岡電台)
