Homily: Most Holy Trinity

This Sunday we celebrated Trinity Sunday – which is one of the few Feasts of the Liturgical Year that celebrates a reality and a doctrine rather than an event.  It is a time that we give glory and praise to God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit – three divine and distinct beings and at the same time, one true God.

And through the centuries countless volumes have been written on this doctrine of three beings in one God.  But due to the limits of our own language we have been forced to use metaphors when trying to describe the Trinity.  

But what if we took some time and stopped looking at God as a noun…and considered God as a verb?  Could the mystery of the Trinity make more sense if we considered God more like some sort of dance or movement?

Before you report me to the Bishop – take a few minutes and listen to my take on this concept which is really rooted in our faith – for it may just change the way you live your life!
