Trinity Sunday (Year A)
Reading the First Testament, it becomes evident that no one can actually "see" God in any of its passages. There are accounts of God's voice, instructions, and commandments, but there are no instances of anybody seeing God face-to-face. Today's first reading (Exodus 34:4-6, 8-9), for instance, recounts the meeting of the Lord with Moses at Mount Sinai where God reveals his name, "The lord, a merciful and gracious God...." (Exodus 34:6). In the New Testament, God makes himself known through Jesus, his only son, who reveals the fullness of the Father and through whom we receive the fullness of eternal life by the Holy Spirit. In this great solemnity of the Holy Trinity, we celebrate God's merciful love for all of us. Today, God draws us to him, asking us to love our brothers and sisters and to overcome our differences and disagreements. The Blessed Trinity is a communion of love that can inspire us to build communion at home, in our communities, and in the world.
