WELCOME TO GOD’S HOLY, CATHOLIC AND APOSTOLIC CHURCH!
A Message From Fr. Resti
A story was told about a husband who said this as he made a toast to his wife on their 50th wedding anniversary: “Cheers to my wife whose love for me has been tried and true!” To which the wife, who due to old age was a little hard of hearing, responded: “Yes, I’m tired of you, too!”
Are we getting tired of making the sign of the cross? If and when we do get tired, let us remember this tried and powerful statement of the truth of what we profoundly believe in faith: that we have a God and our God has three persons. This is what we celebrate in this weekend’s feast of the Most Holy Trinity: our God is a Trinity, the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
First, this is a revealed truth. The Holy Bible revealed this truth to us. The good book teaches that there is only one God (Deut. 6:4; Ex 20:1-3) yet in the one God, there are three distinct Persons – Father, Son and Holy Spirit (Mt 3:16-17; 28:19; 2 Cor 13:14). Second, this is a truth that challenges us. It is not just a doctrine that informs us but a truth that demands something from us. It challenges us to be united amidst our diversity. We are diverse and yet called to be one just as the Holy Trinity is distinctly three and one at the same time. But we can be one only in as far as we accept and appreciate the other who is different from us. Let us remember that it is not uniformity that God wants but unity in diversity.
Happy Blessed Trinity Sunday from Ecuador!
