Journey of Faith

The Most Holy Trinity

Fraternal greetings in the Lord, We have already finished the Easter season. Today we begin the so-called “Ordinary Time” and we began with the feast of the “Holy Trinity”. Jesus revealed to us that God is not alone, but He is love, and family. Us as Christians, we know that God is Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Brothers and sisters, our God is love, and every Sunday He invites us to share his love, in the name of the Holy Trinity. As we always begin our Christian assemblies: In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.


We are on a long and eventful journey.

Today’s readings for Trinity Sunday succinctly cover the depth and breadth of our human travels. The very beginnings of our journey are revealed in the reading from Proverbs. God’s plan filled with divine wisdom was born before the earth was made. In today’s Gospel, Jesus speaks of his own personal journey. He has come from the Father and will return to the Father. Only then will the Advocate—the Spirit of Truth—take us onward. This does not diminish the fact that the journey will be hard. The very setting of the Gospel is the night before Jesus died. As Saint Paul writes to the Romans, “[W]e even boast of our afflictions, knowing that affliction produces endurance, and endurance, proven character, and proven character, hope” (Romans 5:3-4). Ultimately, our human journey is modeled by the Holy Trinity—a family of love among Father, Son, and Spirit that we are all called to emulate.

On Sunday, May 29, we will celebrate the feast of the Holy Body and Blood of Christ; during Mass at noon (12:00 PM) we will have a procession with the Blessed Sacrament of the Body and Blood of Christ. Let the mercy of Christ manifest in our everyday lives… God bless you.

You diocesan priest brothers,

P. Walter Paredes, P. William Ruther and your visitor P. Enrique Hernández
