May 27, Trinity Sunday – a Sunday Scriptures blog

trinity-sundayRichard Rohr reminds us that the Cappadocian Fathers (Gregory of Nyssa, Basil of Caesarea and Gregory Nazianzen and others) said: “Don’t start with the One and try to make it into Three but start with the Three and see that this is the deepest nature of the One.” When we speak of Trinity, then, we are speaking of three divine ways of loving us that God reveals to us through divine actions that we all experience. God loves us with a “fatherly” love of creating, out of which we and every other thing emerges; God loves us with a saving love of healing and repairing and divinizing our selves and our world; and God loves us with a sustaining love that accompanies and comforts us as we journey through time and that welcomes us into eternity. God is love, John the Evangelist incessantly proclaims, and today’s feast of the Holy Trinity gives us a chance to see the depth and scope of this Divine Love as we meditate on the word-symbols that describe it: Father, Son, Spirit.
