For Reflection

"You see the Trinity if you see love."
St Augustine

The Feast of the Trinity celebrates the loving, interdependent relationships and communion we are called into as daughters and sons of God. God’s love is not an abstract or cold experience, but a lifegiving encounter with a never-ending mystery that is already present among us. We make visible the invisible God of creation, healing, and meaning when we actively live the commandment to love others as God loves us. There is an integrated unity in working for justice and peace in a spirit of charity across all spheres of our lives, as what affects one part of the body of Christ directly or indirectly affects us all. At home, in the workplace, in our sports clubs, in community organisations, in our churches, in our schools….being a witness to God’s love at all times and in all places is eucharistic living. When we make the sign of the cross, we acknowledge that our minds, hearts, and daily living are intimately connected. How we think, feel, and act changes us, and the world around us.

Prayer

  I arise today
    through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
    through a belief in the threeness
    through a confession of the Oneness
    of the Creator of creation.

    Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me,
    Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
    Christ on my right, Christ on my left,
    Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down,
    Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me,
    Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
    Christ in the eye that sees me,
    Christ in the ear that hears me.

    I arise today.
