THE MOST HOLY TRINITY

Posted on May 25, 2018

Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity
RCIA Session, Thursday, May 31

 

SUNDAY READINGS
Deuteronomy 4:32-34, 39-40
Psalm 33:4-5,6, 9, 18-19, 20, 22
Romans 8:14-17

"This is why you must now know, and fix in your heart, that the LORD is God in the heavens above and on earth below, and that there is no other."            -cf. Deuteronomy 4:32-40

GOALS THIS WEEK:

  • To know about God as Trinity, according to the Tradition of the Church. 
  • To reflect about the importance and place of God in our lives.
  • To encounter God in our session, or in prayer, or...?

THIS THURSDAY: Holy Trinity

  • RCIA continues on Thursday nights through June, possibly through July: 7:00-9:00 pm in Holy Family Room.   All are welcome!
  • RCIA has ended for those who just received the sacraments.  God bless you!  Don't be a stranger, but call on any of the Shepherds, Sponsors or Staff for anything you need in the Parish

 

PRACTICE THE FAITH:

  • Consider the Creed as a prayer, and it pray it every day this coming week.  How does the fact that God is Father, Son and Holy Spirit - yet only one God - change your life?  Is your life different because of God?  Do you truly believe life is better when lived "in God"?  What does this mean, "to live in God"?
  • Read Chapter 5 of the USCCA for this week's topic: the Holy Trinity.  Also, bring your own questions, because in June we want to focus on your questions at the main topic each week

 

REFLECTION TOGETHER:

"For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life."  John 3:16

"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.  He was in the beginning with God.  All things came to be through him, and without him nothing came to be.  What came to be through him was life, and this life was the light of the human race; the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it."   -John 1:1-5

 

 How do you think of God?  Is God more like a rock or water?  Is God more like warm sunshine or raging wildfire?  Is God close or far, high as the heavens or as deep as the sea?  Is God more like bread, or a quiet breath?

What does it take to know God, be close to God?  Is God more like Father or Mother, Brother or Sister, a powerful old man with white beard sitting on the clouds, Jesus, a spirit, breath?

What are the attributes of God that you most adore?  What things have you heard or know about God that trouble you or cause you questions in some way?  

Take a brief moment to write three things that come to you about how you know or think about God.
