June 6, 2004 Trinity Sunday Cycle C

FIRST READING:

Proverbs 8: 22-31 "Wisdom was born before the earth was made."

RESPONSORIAL PSALM:

Ps. 8 "O Lord, Our God, how wonderful your name in all the earth."

SECOND READING: Rom 5: 1-5 "And this hope will not leave us dissapointed, because the love og God has been poured out in our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us."

GOSPEL ACCLAMATION:

See Rev. 1: 8 "Glory to the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit: to God who is, who was, and who is to come."

GOSPEL:

Jn 16: 12-15 "What the Father has is mine. The Spirit will receive what I give and tell you about it."

FOCUS: "Glory to the Father, and to the Son and the Holy Spirit: as it was in the beginning, is now and will be forever. Amen." "What the Father has is mine. The Spirit will receive what I give and tell you about it."

REFLECTION: We worship one God in Trinity in Unity, neither confounding the Persons, nor dividing the Substance. The Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Ghost is God. Yet there are not three gods, but one God. In this Trinity nothing is before or after, nothing is greater or less: but all three Persons coeternal together and equal. St. Athanasius

Holy Spirit, divine Consoler, I adore you as my true God, with God the Father and God the Son. I adore you and unite myself to the adoration you receive from the angels and saints. I give you my heart and I offer my ardent thanksgiving for all the grace which you never cease to bestow on me.

St. Alphonsus de Liguori

Now let us sing in anthems sweet

To God the Father and the Son,

Who with the Holy Paclete

Forever reigneth three in one.

St. Ambrose

APPLYING THE READINGS TO THE LITURGY: Begin the liturgy quietly, with a sense of contemplation that reflects the mystery of the Trinity. Consider using an entrance chant or litany such as the Trisagion (Holy is God) to help instill this sense of mystery. Introductions to songs and prayers could focus on the will of God made manifest, and that the Holy Spirit will lead us towards the truth. The introduction to the liturgy could encourage reflection on the ways in which we perceive the presence of God.

Introductory Rite:

The Rite of Sprinkling with Holy Water: The triune God is made manifest in the Holy Spirit who draws the church together to pray.

General Intercessions:

Introduction: Gathered together in Christ as brothers and sisters, let us call to mind God's blessings. Let us ask God to hear our prayers through the Holy Spirit:

¥That God may bring all Christians together in unity and faith;

¥ That God may give us the strength to rid the world of war;

¥ That God may help us to show kindness to those who lack food, work, and shelter;

¥ May we all reach out in love to our sisters and brothers;

¥ May all of us gathered in this holy place in faith, reverence, and love of God, feel love for all God's works.

Preface: Preface of the Holy Trinity

Concluding Rite:

Solemn Blessing: First or fifth or Solemn Blessing: Of the Holy Spirit

Faith Formation

You may never understand the Trinity. But you can love God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost, and all God's creatures. That's all that matters.

Tomorrow is the Feast of the Visitation. Read all about it in the first chapter of Luke. These two prayers, from that chapter, with an addenda by St. Cyril, should be a part of your daily communication with God.

Hail Mary

Hail Mary, full of grace,

Blessed art thou amongst women,

And blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Luke 1: 39-45

Holy Mary, Mother of God,

Pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

The Magnificat

My soul doth magnify the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior.

For he hath regarded the lowliness of his handmaiden.

For, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. For he that is mighty hath done great things by me, and holy is his name. Luke 1:

Praise to the Holy Trinity PMB, RJ

Children's Liturgy of the Word

We experience the Trinity in the rich diversity of life, and of the underlying organization of all things. Talk to the children about the similarities between a tree's branches and the human circulatory system. There are all kinds of organized systems that speak of God the diverse.
