The Trinity is not an abstract doctrine but a living reality. In today’s gospel Jesus speaks of the Father and Holy Spirit as the most profound and living reality of his own life. With them he communes; their life he shares. We too can live in communion with the Trinity. The Spirit will lead us to the truth of Jesus, and Jesus will lead us to the Father. It is the Spirit who inspires us to carry on in the Church Jesus’ work of revealing the father. In the reading from Proverbs, we find a first stage in the revelation of the Trinity: Wisdom is personified, seeming to work with God in creating the world. St. Paul writes to the Romans about the gift of faith which gives us hope of one day seeing God’s glory. But already we are learning to rely on God’s life within us. We are being proved by suffer-ing, giving us a share with Christ; and we experience God’s love in our hearts. God our creator, redeemer and sustainer is the centre of our lives as Christians. May we grow in this state of grace.
