Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity

Mt 28: 16-20 

Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Living life of the Holy Trinity

At Manresa, St. Ignatius had a vision of the Holy Trinity as three musical keys forming one harmonious chord. He wrote that the experience struck him so profoundly that there were “so many tears and so much sobbing that he could not control himself.”  From then on, he continued, “this great impression has remained with him, to feel great devotion when he prays to the Most Holy Trinity.” His conversations with the members of the Trinity guided the decisions he made all through his lifetime.  

There are many analogies that help us to better understand the Holy Trinity, but they all fall short in some way. St. Ignatius teaches us that this magnificent mystery is not primarily for analysis, but for encountering and mirroring in our own lives. The Holy Trinity--Father, Son, and Holy Spirit--is the most perfect family and community where no one is self-absorbed, and each distinct member loves and gives completely to the other, so much so that they are perfectly united as One. 

What would our families and our world be like if our lives reflected the life of the Most Holy Trinity?

Prayer

O my God, Trinity whom I adore, help me to forget myself entirely that I may be established in You as still and as peaceful as if my soul were already in eternity. May nothing trouble my peace or make me leave You, O my Unchanging One, but may each minute carry me further into the depths of Your Mystery.

—St. Elizabeth of the Trinity

Welcome to JesuitPrayer.org

Ignatian spirituality reminds us that God pursues us in the routines of our home and work life, and in the hopes and fears of life's challenges. The founder of the Jesuits, Saint Ignatius of Loyola, created the Spiritual Exercises to deepen our relationship with Christ and to move our contemplation into service. May this prayer site anchor your day and strengthen your resolve to remember what truly matters.
