Proverbs 8:22-31; Psalm 8:4-5.6-7a.7b-9 (R. 2a); Romans 5:1-5; John 16:12-15)

The mystery we celebrate today cannot be explained very simply. There are three distinct Persons in one God: The Father, The Son, and The Holy Spirit. God the Father is not the Son, neither is He the Holy Spirit. God the Son is not the Father, neither is He the Holy Spirit. God the Holy Spirit is not the Father, neither is He the Son. However, God the Father is God, God the Son is God and God the Holy Spirit is also God. Now here’s the mystery: from our explanation, we should have three Gods, but we don’t. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit are three distinct persons in the same One God.

So many instances in scripture prove this undivided Union between the Three distinct Persons in One indivisible God. Don’t try to over explain, you’ll run into confusion. Don’t just say ‘Oh it’s a mystery, we need not explain it at all’. In the first reading, Wisdom is personified as being with God before the world began. Many Church Fathers and Scripture scholars agree that this passage refers to Jesus Christ. In the second reading, St Paul connects the action of the Trinity in an amazing way. “We have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ”, and “God’s love has been poured into our hearts though the Holy Spirit.” In the gospel reading, Jesus informs his disciples that the Spirit of truth will lead them to the complete truth, taking from what belongs to Him, since all that belongs to the Father equally belongs to the Son.

Friends, only God can be three and yet remain one. We must learn a lesson of absolute love and cooperation from the Holy Trinity. In our own lives and in our relationship with others, we must show that we’re children of the Trinity, after all, the apple does not fall far from the tree. As we celebrate Democracy day today, there is no better time to work for peace and unity, knowing that the only way to bring about peace is to focus on justice, equal rights and fairness. May the Holy Trinity strengthen us all in love, Amen.

Happy Trinity Sunday to you dearest friends, and Happy Democracy Day.
