Solemnity of the Holy Trinity

Leave a comment below

Dear Brothers and Sisters, Fiat!

Today, the Sunday after Pentecost, we celebrate the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity, a celebration for contemplating and lauding the mystery of the God of Jesus Christ, who is one in the communion of three Persons: the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. To celebrate with ever new wonder God-Love, who freely offers us his life and asks us to spread it throughout the world.

Today’s Bible readings help us understand that God wishes to show us not so much that he exists but rather that he is the ‘God with us’, close to us, who loves us, who walks with us, is interested in our personal life story and takes care of each one, beginning with the least and the neediest. He “is God in heaven above” but also “on the earth beneath” (cf. Dt 4:39). Therefore, we do not believe in a distant entity, no! In an indifferent entity, no! But, on the contrary, in the Love who created the universe and who engendered a people, became flesh, died and rose for us and, as the Holy Spirit, transforms and leads everything to fulfilment.

Saint Paul (cf. Rom 8:14-17), who experienced first hand this transformation brought about by God-Love, tells us of God’s desire to be called Father, indeed, ‘Dad’ — God is ‘Our Father’ —, with the total confidence of a child who abandons himself in the arms of the one who gave him life. Acting in us — the Apostle again recalls — the Holy Spirit ensures that Jesus Christ is not reduced to a character of the past, no, but that we feel he is near, our contemporary, and feel the joy of being children loved by God. Lastly, in the Gospel, the Risen Lord promises to remain with us forever. And thanks precisely to his presence and to the power of his Spirit we can serenely carry out the mission that he entrusts to us. What is the mission? To proclaim to all and witness to his Gospel and thereby expand our communion with him and the joy that comes from it. God, walking with us, fills us with joy and in a way, joy is a Christian’s first language.

Thus, the Feast of the Most Holy Trinity leads us to contemplate the mystery of God who unceasingly creates, redeems and sanctifies, always with love and through love, and enables every creature that welcomes him to reflect a ray of his beauty, goodness and truth. He has always chosen to walk with mankind and forms a people who may be a blessing for all nations and for each person, excluding none. A Christian is not an isolated person; he or she belongs to a people: this people that God forms. One cannot be Christian without this membership and communion. We are a people: the People of God. May the Virgin Mary help us to joyfully fulfil the mission of witnessing to the world, thirsty for love, that the meaning of life is precisely the infinite love, the tangible love of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.

In the passage of March 1, 1936 Jesus tells Luisa that each time the soul wants to do the Divine Will, our Celestial Father looks inside of Himself first, He calls the Sacrosanct Trinity as though into Council in order to fill that act of the Divine Will with all possible and imaginable goods; then He unleashes it from Himself, and has the creature invested with His operating, communicating, transforming Will; and just as in the Incarnation the Three Divine Persons remained in Heaven and descended into the womb of the Immaculate Virgin, in the same way, the Divine Will with Its Power transports with Itself, within Its operative act, the Divine Trinity into the creature, while leaving It in Heaven, and forms Its divine act in the human will. Now, who can tell us the wonders that are enclosed in this act of  Divine Will? God’s Love rises and diffuses so much as to find no place where to put Itself; and when It has filled everything, It withdraws into His source; His Sanctity feels honored with a divine act by His very Will operating in the creature, and It spreads with surprising grace in order to communicate Its Sanctity to all creatures. These are unspeakable prodigies which It performs when the creature calls It to operate in her. Therefore, we should let everything disappear in the Divine Will, and  the Holy Trinity will give us everything in our power, and we will be able to give God everything – even God Himself.
