Sunday, June 15, 2014: Trinity Sunday
We have come to know God as
Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, the
Blessed Trinity
Our God is a mystery which
we can never fully understand
or put into words. Yet we often
use images to help explain
something about what God is like. We speak of God
as Creator of all things, as the almighty one, as lover,
as judge, as rock. Each of these images tells us
something about God, but no one image could ever
express completely who God is.
Jesus spoke about God as his Father and our
Father, and Jesus spoke about the Spirit whom he
and the Father would send to his Church. Christians
believe that Jesus is the Son of God. As the early
Christians tried to discern how they could talk about
God as Father as Son, and as Holy Spirit, and still
believe in the one God of their ancestors, they began
to use the term, the Holy Trinity. The doctrine of the
Holy Trinity affirms that there is only one God, but
that in God there are three divine Persons: Father,
Son, and Holy Spirit.
National Catechetical Directory
By words and actions, God prepared for the ultimate
disclosure of Himself as a Trinity: Father, Son and
Holy Spirit.
The mystery of the Holy Trinity was revealed in
the person, words, and works of Jesus Christ.
Catechism of the Catholic Church
The Church never ceases to proclaim her faith in one
only God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
The mystery of the Most Holy Trinity is the
central mystery of Christian faith and life. It is the
mystery of God in himself. It is therefore the source
of all the other mysteries of faith, the light that
enlightens them. It is the most fundamental and
essential teaching in the “hierarchy of the truths of
[GCD 43]. (#234)

The Mission Appeal will be this weekend June 14 &
15. Speakers will be from Pallottine Fathers and
Brothers Society of the Catholic Apostolate. Here is
a brief description of their Society. Pallottines (The
Society of the Catholic Apostolate) is a religious
community of over 2300 members spread over
several countries in the five continents. It was
founded in Rome in 1835 by St. Vincent Pallotti. He
is considered the pioneer in championing the role of
the Laity in the mission of the Church. He is
recognized as having profoundly influenced teaching
of Vat.II on Laity. The motto of the Society is: “make
everyone a Catholic, every Catholic a good Catholic,
and every good Catholic an Apostle.” In India,
besides carrying out his vision by inspiring laity to
take active role in the church, we run several mission
stations aimed at catering to the needs of the poor
and the underprivileged. We do the same in the
Zambia, Africa as well. We run orphanages for poor
boys and girls, run educational institutions,
dispensaries and other charitable works along with
faith formation. We undertake many social work
programs directly aimed at helping the poor and
needy. In the traditional Catholic areas we
concentrate on re-evangelization and the training of
the laity to become active apostles.
