God's Inner Life
Trinity Sunday

Dear Friends,

This weekend we celebrate The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity. The Feast commemorates who God is in Himself: It gives us an opportunity to reflect on God’s inner, triune, life.

One of the reasons we want to know about God is the fact that we are made in his image and likeness. If we want to know who we are, then we must in some measure know who God is.

God, as he is in himself, is an eternal exchange of glorifying, self-forgetful love. God is a community of persons, a communion of persons. God's very nature is to be totally other-oriented.

Likewise, it is our nature to be totally other-oriented. We discover most deeply who we are by giving ourselves away to God both in praise (in loving him) and for his purposes (in loving our neighbor).

Just one more note: God is eternally Father, Son, and Spirit. All fatherhood is from God, and we honor the many men this weekend who have faithfully embodied God’s fatherly love for us. Happy Father's Day and heartfelt thanks!

In the Love of our Three-Personal God,
Father Daniel
