Acts 5:27-33. Psalm 33(34):2, 9, 17-20. John 3:31-36.
The Lord hears the cry of the poor – Psalm 33(34):2, 9, 17-20.
‘The Father loves the Son and has placed all things in his hands.’
Giving and receiving – the deepest relationship of love – shine out in this text. The reciprocal love of Father and Son, a love without limits, is poured out on us through the Holy Spirit. Our tripersonal God is the Divine Dance – communing in mutuality and love.
Those who are aware of the God of the dance join in movement and song. We look for the Father’s care in the midst of our human lives. We are awake to the presence of the Spirit poured out for us – ‘given without measure’. We experience Jesus’ presence in our days. Ultimately, we find our strength in this God of ours.
Tripersonal God of the dance, you alone can satisfy the longing of my heart and its contradictions. Confirm me with the blessing of your presence. May I be a sign to others, aware of what I am constantly receiving in relating with you.
