Friends of the Rosary:
Yesterday’s solemnity drew our attention to the mystery of the Trinity — God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.
The sublime truth of the Trinity is ageless. Its power to transform souls has illuminated the hearts and minds of saints over time.
St. Teresa of Ávila wrote: “The three Persons are distinct from one another; a sublime knowledge is infused into the soul, imbuing it with a certainty of the truth that the Three are of one substance, power, and knowledge and are one God.”
St. Catherine of Siena: “Eternal Trinity! You gave us not only your Word through the Redemption and in the Eucharist, but you also gave yourself in the fullness of love for your creature.”
St. John Paul II: “A great mystery of love, an ineffable mystery, before which words must give way to the silence of wonder and worship. A divine mystery that challenges and involves us, because a share in the Trinitarian life was given to us through grace, through the redemptive Incarnation of the Word and the gift of the Holy Spirit.”
St. Faustina Kowalska: “When One of the Three Persons communicates with a soul, by the power of that one will, it finds itself united with the Three Persons and is inundated in the happiness flowing from the Most Holy Trinity, the same happiness that nourishes the saints. This same happiness that streams from the Most Holy Trinity makes all creation happy; from it springs that life which vivifies and bestows all life which takes its beginning from him.”
St. Francis de Sales (from a consecration prayer to the Trinity): “I vow and consecrate to God all that is in me: My memory and my actions to God the Father; My understanding and my words to God the Son; My will and my thoughts to God the Holy Spirit.”
Jesus, I Trust In You!
