Monsignor’s Message – Most Holy Trinity

Posted on Jun 7, 2017 in DeSales Blog, Monsignor's Message

This is a message from Msgr. Kieran Harrington, Vicar for Communications for the Diocese of Brooklyn that appears in The Tablet:

The Holy Trinity is a mystery and all mysteries elude our grasp. Just when we have an insight that leads to some understanding, deeper questions emerge. For me, what is central about the Trinity is relationships. We believe in one God. Yet, God is in relationship — God is Father, Son and Spirit. This relation is not a relationship of rivals, but of love. This love is not sterile, but generative. We human beings who are created in the image and likeness of our creator might consider, on this feast of the Most Holy Trinity, the quality of our relationships. Do our relationships give life or drain life? Are they manipulative or free? Do we become selfish or are we more selfless? On this feast day, perhaps we might consider how our relationships resemble or disfigure this image of the Trinity.

May God bless you,
Monsignor Kieran Harrington, V.E.
