Homily for Trinity Sunday (MP3 Audio) A People Made One in the Unity of the Trinity

"That the Church may shine forth as a people made one in the unity of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit" (St Cyprian's commentary on the Pater Noster) - this is the work of our present time. At least that is what Blessed Pope John Paul II said.

But how? We must recognize with faith the Son of the Father by the power of the Holy Spirit. The Mass is the place where we can adjust or vision and learn how to recognize him, so that when we go back into our lives we will never stop recognizing him everywhere.

Once I was teaching a class and I asked a little boy who is the Trinity. He said, you can't understand it. It is a mystery. You many not be able to understand, but you are called to love the Blessed Trinity.

Our families are the chief place where we live out this mystery, loving one another as God loves us. In our time we have need of defending the family from attacks such as same-sex unions, contraception, abortion, embryonic stem cell research, human cloning, and more.

Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity helps us live the grace of being a trinitarian family and helps us to protect the family as an institution. May her prayers and intercessions help us be a people made one in the unity of the Trinity.
