The Gospel Today
Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity
Jn 16: 12-15
Jesus said to his disciples:
“I have much more to tell you, but you cannot bear it now.
But when he comes, the Spirit of truth,
he will guide you to all truth.
He will not speak on his own,
but he will speak what he hears,
and will declare to you the things that are coming.
He will glorify me,
because he will take from what is mine and declare it to you.
Everything that the Father has is mine;
for this reason I told you that he will take from what is mine
and declare it to you.”
Reflection (Sem. Ramon C. Jamora, Jr.)
How blessed are the prophets to hear the voice of God, who is the great “I Am Who Am” (CCC213). How blessed are the kings to serve God, who is “the strong and mighty one” (CCC269). How blessed are the apostles to see and hear God, through the Son, our Lord Jesus, who is the beloved Son, sent to save us (CCC 430). How blessed are we to receive the Holy Spirit, who is “the giver of Life” (CCC 485).
God’s presence is indeed eternal. I believe that we cannot really profess all of who God is without knowing His will. Everything comes from Him who created and made us in His image and likeness. Though the gospel speaks about great mystery in our faith, God still gives us the means to know Him. God sent prophets to reveal His word, His Son who saved us from our sins, and the Holy Spirit to declare to us the One true God.
I may not have seen God, but I believe we all share one thing, that “God is good” and in His great goodness He is always there with us. As we continue to journey on our way to His kingdom, let us pray and ask Him to grace us with faith. Let us continue to inspire one another and hold on to the promise that God would send the Holy Spirit to reveal everything that He wishes us to know.
