SUNDAY! SUNDAY! SUNDAY!: Parts of the Whole

1st Reading: Exodus 34:4-6, 8-9

Responsorial Psalm: Daniel 3:52, 53, 54, 55, 56

2nd Reading: Second Corinthians 13:11-13

Gospel: John 3:16-18

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.

 

Think about what you said in Mass this Sunday when you made the Sign of the Cross: “In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.”  Like when doing this action, in the mass readings, we see that the Holy Trinity is mentioned. It is the Feast of the Holy Trinity; people are sometimes confused with this idea. In the Holy Trinity, there is love between each of the Persons, and there is no jealousy present.  Each of the Persons are all parts of a whole and do something different.

In the Gospel, we see this well-known line. “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” I don’t know about you, but Jesus Christ is the only one who has ever given their life for me and for billions of people.  That is true, unconditional love; God sacrificed his own son for us and still accepts us for all the sins we commit.  Accept Him with open arms, and remember that you will always have the Holy Trinity watching over you.
