The Most Holy Trinity is a central mystery of our faith. Let’s take a look at some of the themes that surface in the readings this week.

  • God is the Lord of all creation, and there is no other.
  • The people are enjoined to keep God’s commandments.

Psalm – 33:4-5,6,9,18-19,20,22

  • “Blessed the people the Lord has chosen to be his own.”
  • God is upright, just and right; God’s kindness is witnessed in creation.
  • We wait for the Lord, who delivers us from death.

2nd Reading – Romans 4:14-17

  • We are children of God by adoption through the Spirit
  • We call upon God, “Abba, Father!”
  • United with God, we will suffer so that we may be glorified.

Gospel – Matthew 28:16-20

  • All power has been given to Christ.
  • Christ commands us to baptize in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
