Meditation on Trinity Sunday

From The Liturgical Year by Dom Prosper Gueranger

Queenship of the Blessed Virgin MaryIn the Epistle, filled with wonder and adoring awe, we stand with Paul before the most unfathomable mystery of our Faith, incomprehensible to our human intelligence: three Persons, and yet but one single divine nature; Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, each truly God, and yet only one God. The Son proceeds from the mind of the Father, being generating in the Father's self-knowledge; the Holy Spirit proceeds from the mutual love of Father and Son. “O the depths of the riches of the wisdom and of the knowledge of God! How incomprehensible are his judgments, and how unsearchable his ways! … Of him [the Father] and by him [the Son] and in him [the Holy Spirit] are all things. To him be glory for ever. Amen.” The Gradual carries on the praises of the last phrase of the Lesson in a threefold direction: Blessed be God in the depths of the sea, blessed in the firmament of heaven where He reigns over the cherubim, blessed in the destiny of men which in our fathers and ancestors He guided from generation to generation.

In the Gospel Christ Himself, in limpid words, attests the mystery of the Most Holy Trinity: “Going therefore, teach ye all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.” In the earliest days of Christianity, the recipients of baptism had to be completely immersed in water. The significance of it was this: in baptism our souls are immersed in the mystical lifestream of the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and so made partakers of the divine nature. Through it we acquired a title to heaven, a title to be admitted to the enjoyment of the divine life hereafter. For this we give thanks once more in the Offertory: “Blessed be God the Father, and the only-begotten Son of God, and also the Holy Spirit, because he has shown his mercy to us.” Herein lies the great beauty and the characteristic feature of today's Mass: for ourselves we ask nothing; the Triune God alone stands in the foreground, and to Him we offer our thanks and praise.

In the thrice-repeated Sanctus, in union with the angels and saints, we adore the Triune God. At the Consecration, praise and thanks are rendered to Him, no longer merely through our feeble words, for now the Son of God appears on the altar and, in our name, as man, offers to the Father and the Holy Spirit the great Sacrifice of praise and thanks and expiation. Then in the Communion we carry Christ in our breast and, in union with Him, we make the Mass ring out in the Communion hymn with praise and thanks just as we did at the beginning: “We will praise the God of heaven... because he hath shown his mercy to us.”

Recessional Hymn

God Father, praise and glory Thy children bring to Thee,
Thy grace and peace to mankind Shall now forever be.
O most holy Trinity, Undivided Unity;
Holy God, mighty God, God Immortal, be adored.
And Thou Lord, co-eternal, God's sole-begotten Son;
O Jesus, King anointed, Who has Redemption won.
O Holy Ghost, Creator, Thou gift of God most high;
Life, love, and holy Wisdom, Our weakness now supply.
O most holy Trinity, Undivided Unity;
Holy God, mighty God, God Immortal, be adored.
