The Most Holy Trinity Sunday
“God our Father, who by sending into the world the Word of truth and the Spirit of sanctification made known to the human race your wondrous mystery, grant us, we pray, that in professing the true faith, we may acknowledge the Trinity of eternal glory and adore your Unity, powerful in majesty.”
First Reading: Exodus 34.4b-6, 8-9
When have I encountered God in a profound way? Moses approached God with deep penitence for his people and longing for God’s presence with them. How was my heart prepared to encounter God? What was God’s message to me?
Daniel 3: “Glory and praise forever!”
Second Reading: 2 Corinthians 13.11-13
What do I need to “put in order” with my brothers and sisters? How is the indwelling grace of the Holy Trinity apparent in my life?
“Alleluia. Glory to the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit: to God who is, who was, and who is to come. Alleluia.
Gospel: John 3.16-18
God did not send the Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him.” As a believer, how should I respond to this wondrous gift? What of those who do not yet believe?
