Sunday, we commemorated a significant milestone: the 40th anniversary of Father John's ordination. For four decades, Father John has stood as a pillar of faith, commitment, and service within our church and community. His unwavering devotion has been an inspiration and a guiding light on our collective spiritual journey. Father John's teachings and actions have consistently embodied the virtues of faith, hope, and love. His selfless service and dedication are reflective of Christ's teachings and are a testament to the noble calling he answered forty years ago. This anniversary serves not just as a testament to Father John's enduring commitment to his calling, but also as a celebration of the profound impact he has had on our lives. He has been more than just a priest to us; he has been a mentor and a friend, showing us the way to grace through his words and deeds. As we honor Father John's four decades of spiritual leadership and loving service, we pray for God's continued blessings upon him. May God provide him with strength, wisdom, and peace in the many years to come.

The Solemnity of the Holy Trinity is a special day on the liturgical calendar that celebrates the doctrine of the Trinity: the three Persons of God: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Let's start by reviewing a passage from Matthew 28:19, "Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit". This verse clearly articulates the Trinitarian belief that underpins our faith, and serves as our mandate as Christians to spread the Good News.


On this day, we are called to reflect and celebrate this great mystery of our faith. How can God be one, yet three? It is a divine mystery that transcends our human understanding, and yet, it is the foundation of our Christian belief. This concept may seem abstract, but it permeates our lives in multiple ways. Just as the three Persons of the Trinity are distinct yet united in love, we too are called to live in unity with our fellow beings.


The Holy Trinity serves as a model for our relationships, illustrating how distinct individuals can exist in harmonious unity. In our daily interactions, we encounter this mystery. Through love, we participate in the life of the Trinity. The love of the Father is generative, life-giving, creative. The love of the Son is self-giving, salvific, redemptive.


The love of the Holy Spirit is transformative, sanctifying, inspiring. When we live our lives animated by this kind of love, we reflect the image of the Trinity. When we generate life, whether physical or spiritual, we reflect the Father. When we give ourselves for others, we reflect the Son. And when we allow God's grace to change our hearts and minds for the better, we reflect the Holy Spirit.


As we celebrate the Solemnity of the Holy Trinity, let's strive to better embody this divine mystery in our lives. In our mutual love, let's reflect the unity and diversity found within the Trinity. By striving to be more generous, selfless, and open to transformation, we bring the reality of the Trinity to our world. Let's carry in our hearts the words of the Apostle Paul in his second letter to the Corinthians (13:13): "The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with all of you". May these words guide us in our efforts to manifest the love and unity of the Holy Trinity in our everyday life, through charity and participation in the sacraments. God bless you all, Adam.

La Solemnidad de la Santísima Trinidad es un día especial en el calendario litúrgico que celebra la doctrina de la Trinidad: las tres Personas de Dios: el Padre, el Hijo y el Espíritu Santo.


Comencemos revisando un pasaje de Mateo 28:19, "Por tanto, vayan y hagan discípulos de todas las naciones, bautizándolos en el nombre del Padre y del Hijo y del Espíritu Santo". Este versículo articula claramente la creencia trinitaria que sustenta nuestra fe, y sirve como nuestro mandato como cristianos para difundir la Buena Nueva.


En este día, se nos llama a reflexionar y celebrar este gran misterio de nuestra fe. ¿Cómo puede Dios ser uno, pero tres? Es un misterio divino que escapa a nuestro entendimiento humano, y sin embargo, es el fundamento de nuestra creencia cristiana. Este concepto puede parecer abstracto, pero impregna nuestras vidas de múltiples maneras. Así como las tres Personas de la Trinidad son distintas pero unidas en el amor, también nosotros estamos llamados a vivir en unidad con nuestros semejantes. La Santísima Trinidad sirve como modelo para nuestras relaciones, ilustrando cómo individuos distintos pueden existir en unidad armoniosa. En nuestras interacciones diarias, encontramos este misterio. A través del amor, participamos en la vida de la Trinidad. El amor del Padre es generativo, dador de vida, creativo. El amor del Hijo es entregado, salvífico, redentor. El amor del Espíritu Santo es transformador, santificante, inspirador. Cuando vivimos nuestras vidas animados por este tipo de amor, reflejamos la imagen de la Trinidad. Cuando generamos vida, ya sea física o espiritual, reflejamos al Padre. Cuando nos entregamos por los demás, reflejamos al Hijo. Y cuando permitimos que la gracia de Dios cambie nuestros corazones y mentes para mejorar, reflejamos al Espíritu Santo.


Al celebrar la Solemnidad de la Santísima Trinidad, esforcémonos en encarnar mejor este misterio divino en nuestras vidas. En nuestro amor mutuo, reflejemos la unidad y la diversidad que se encuentra dentro de la Trinidad. Al esforzarnos por ser más generosos, desinteresados y abiertos a la transformación, llevamos la realidad de la Trinidad a nuestro mundo. Llevemos en nuestros corazones las palabras del Apóstol Pablo en su segunda carta a los Corintios (13:13): "La gracia del Señor Jesucristo y el amor de Dios y la comunión del Espíritu Santo estén con todos ustedes". Que estas palabras nos guíen en nuestros esfuerzos por manifestar el amor y la unidad de la Santísima Trinidad en nuestra vida cotidiana. Dios los bendiga a todos, Adam.
