About Today Readings

Trinity Sunday

Exodus 34:4-6, 8-9. Glory and praise for ever! – Daniel 2:52-56. 2 Corinthians 13:11-13. John 3:16-18.

‘God sent his Son so that through him the world might be saved’

Today, we reflect on the mystery of the Holy Trinity. Our God is one, yet also three. In today’s Gospel we read the famous verse, John 3:16. Beloved of American basketball and baseball spectators, this verse tells of God’s great love in sending us his only Son. Indeed, God’s love for His Son is so profound as to become the third Person in the Trinity, the Holy Spirit.

Sometimes I have a tendency to favour one of the Persons in the Trinity over the others in prayer. My prayers tend to be directed towards God the Father, and only sometimes do I pray to Jesus or to the Spirit. Perhaps today would be a good time to pray to God in another Person of the Trinity, or to reflect upon the three-yet-one nature of our God.
