June 11, 2006 Trinity Sunday: Cycle B
                           FIRST READING:
                           Deut. 4: 32-34; 39-40  "The Lord himself is God in heaven above and on earth below: there is no other."
                           RESPONSORIAL PSALM: 
                           Ps. 33 "Happy the people the Lord has chosen to be his own." 
                           SECOND READING: Rom 8: 14-17 "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:
                           Mt. 28, 16-20 "Baptize them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit."
                           
                           
                           SCRIPTURAL TOPICS: wisdom, the wonder of God, the love of God, the Spirit of God , the Holy Spirit
                           
                           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."
                           
                           
                           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
                           
                           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
                           
                           RCIA/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.
                           
                           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.
