Twelfth Sunday in Ordinary Time

From the Word of the Day 

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with all of you.

          1 Corinthians 13: 13                                                          

 How should we live this Word 

This is Paul’s wish to the Corinthians and to all of us on this solemnity of the Blessed Trinity.  Today’s Liturgy helps us to perceive the face of the invisible God.  It reveals a God who is merciful and kind, who occupies Himself with each one of us, a God who is Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.  Our God is truly an ineffable mystery but also so intimate that He dwells in every person and seeks a relationship of love with each one.  He became one of us inJesus Christ to stay near us in a way we could understand.  If we are willing, Jesus leads us slowly into the bosom of the Trinity, Source of all that we are and our eternal happiness.                                                  

Today in my pause for silent contemplation, I will remain silently in my heart to experience the presence of God-Love who is seeking me. 

Blessed Trinity, I seek You with all my heart.  Nothing exists outside of You.  Glory to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit, as it was in the beginning, is now, and will be forever.  Amen!

The voice of St. Elizabeth of the Trinity, Carmelite and Mystic

I penetrate ever more deeply in this profundity.  There is where the solitude resides in which God wants to attract the soul to speak to it, as the prophet sang.  In order to understand this word full of mystery, we must not stop so to say, at the superficial.  Instead, we need to go deeper into the divine Being through recollection.  We must allow ourselves to slide down the slope with a confidence full of love.
