Unlike other feast or celebration in the church when we honor a person or an event, today we celebrate a belief.
Our Faith on the One Triune God, that there are three persons in one God, God the father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
It is a mystery something that our minds could never reach or fathom. It defies logic or mathematics, for how can it be 1+1+1=1
This is what the Lord is telling us today in the gospel: " I have much more to tell you but you cannot bear it now But the Holy Spirit come upon you He will guide you by the truth."
But we believe because Christ said so, Go and make disciples of all nations baptize them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit
and always we will be Trinitarian, when we make the sign of the cross, that's our faith and trust in the holy trinity.
and it is sad when how sometimes this profession is not used in the right and proper way.
a story about how a visitor, a foreigner in our country the Philippines was impressed and amazed when he saw a man before climbing a coconut three made the sign of the cross and remarked about his being religious and he was corrected don.t be impressed for he is climbing to steal coconuts.
today we are reminded about how we profess and hold our faith one the triun God the right and sincerest way.
It reminds us also about the message of Unity.
Just as God the father God the son and God the Holy Spirit are one Unity is also important for us
In our lives that we should make an effort to be always be close and united with God, for "apart from him we can do nothing." Jesus said. In Him we have our strength and our being remain united with Him
Work for Unity at Home
to our couples stand firm there will always be challenges in your relationship hold on and be united it is worth fighting till the end.
The family gets its strength in being close to each other and united. Its vacation time take the opportunity to find time to be together.
St Joseph is doing great because of the unity and love of many.
Our country, will always be united, for it is the United States of America, but there is an invitation to practice it sincerely and faithfully and use unity for doing more good and showing love for others.
As we honor God the Father, God the son and the Holy Spirit, as we celebrate our faith let us also ask to help us become an instrument of unity and peace, Amen
This is a site of "Leaps of Faith" experiences and reflections. Be it Philosophical, Theological, Practical or Personal. It is also a site of Biblical reflections. But Above all, This is a site for YOU and ME.
"Leaps of Faith"
"LEAPS OF FAITH" Can be a religious movement of a person, an inner movement of belief, of trust on the greatest power of all, The Supreme being..Our Creator and Maker..Our God. They can be resolutions of a person everyday in his life to move forward, to be a better person, and to start a new life. They can be decisions of a person in times of great uncertainties, when he is not sure of what will come or happen and he makes a leap of faith. They can be steps, difficult steps that a person makes on his way to change or to start anew. Or they can simply be a persons resolve to fly, to travel..to widen his horizons, to learn more about life and to grow. These are Leaps of faith we make everyday and in great moments of our lives and they are worth considering and reflecting.
