On June 7, the Church celebrated the Solemnity of the Most Blessed Trinity, the central mystery of our faith, which also is the principal feast of our congregation. Our contemplative-missionary calling takes its origin in the mystery of the Trinity (cf. C.411). “It is our constant endeavor to glorify the triune God by responding to his love and saving Will, revealed to us through Jesus Christ, the Word made Flesh, in whose Spirit, we have access to the Father and share in the divine life.” (C.101)

The Doctrine of the Trinity is so unfathomable. We hope the explanation of Fr. Brice Higginbotham will give us some light regarding this great mystery.

May we deepen our relationship with the triune God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. If we love the Son, we will come to love the Father as well, for they are one. And this love that we have has been poured out into our hearts by God through the Holy Spirit, (cf.Rom.5:5) through which we cry, “Abba, Father!” (cf.Rom.8:15). And this is the same Spirit that makes our “tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father!” (cf. Phil.2:11).

Our Founder, St. Arnold Janssen, has given us a short prayer, and we also write this as heading for our letters to one another. Not only for us, do we pray this, but for all. Though very short but very profound. And so we pray:

May the holy triune God live in our hearts and in every heart.
