Trinity Sunday.

Trinity Sunday

Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

The mystery of the Trinity invites us to contemplate the internal life of God, who as we learned last week is love. This week the relationship of Father, Son and Holy Spirit is revealed as a community of love and life.

Contemplating this mystery is not about trying to understand secrets, but allowing ourselves to reflect on how this loving God invites us to become sharers in the divine loving community. Jesus instructs the disciples to baptise in the name of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit, we are immersed into the mystery and the reality of love.

As you begin these reflections each day spend a few moments repeating the phrase “Speak Lord, your servant it listening.” Then read the short passage from Sunday’s readings until you have memorised it. Read the questions and give yourself time to deeply consider your response. Once you have reflected for a few minutes, speak to the Lord, as you would to a friend, about what you have reflected upon.



Moses said to the people: Did ever a people hear the voice of the living God speaking to them from the heart of the fire, as you heard it, and remained alive? (Deuteronomy 4:33)

  • When have you heard God speaking to you?
  • What did God reveal to you?
  • When do we as a people hear God speak to us?
  • Listen to the Lord who speaks to us.



Our soul is waiting for the Lord. The Lord is our help and our shield May your love be upon us, O Lord, as we place all our hope in you. (Psalm 32: 20-22)

  • When have you known the Lord to be your help?
  • When have you known the Lord to be your shield?
  • When have you known the love of God to be upon you?
  • Listen to the Lord who comes to your help.



Everyone moved by the Spirit is a son (daughter) of God. The spirit your received is not the spirit of slaves bringing fear into your lives again; it is the spirit of sons, and it makes us cry out, ‘Abba, Father.’ (Romans 8:14-15)

  • When have you felt fear in your life?
  • When have you felt moved by the Spirit?
  • When do you call out ‘Abba, Father.’
  • Listen to the Lord who gives you the Spirit.



The Spirit himself and our spirit bear united interest that we are children of God. And if we are children we are heirs as well: heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, sharing his suffering so as to share his glory. (Romans 8:16-17)

  • What does it mean to you to be called a child of God?
  • What have you been heir to from your spiritual life?
  • When have you shared in the sufferings of Christ?
  • Listen to the Lord who is your Father.



Alleluia, alleluia. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit, the God who is, who was and who is to come. Alleluia.(cf Apocalypse 1:8)

  • When do you glorify the Lord?
  • What does the mystery of the Trinity mean to you?
  • Remember when the Lord has been with you in the past, be aware that he is with you now, and will be with you in your future.
  • Listen to the Lord who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit.



Jesus came up and spoke to them. He said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth have been given to me. Go therefore, make disciples of all nations; baptise them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. (Matthew 28:18-19 )

  • Who made you a disciple?
  • Who have you made a disciple?
  • Remember baptisms you have attended, pray for those people.
  • Listen to the Lord who have all authority.



Teach them to observe all the commands I gave you and know that I am with you always; yes to the end of time. (Matthew 28:20)

  • What commands do you find difficult to observe?
  • Spend a moment thanking Jesus that he is with you.
  • Listen to the Lord who is with you now.
