Trinity Sunday and a Daily Habit

Today is Trinity Sunday. Catholics recognize that there are three Persons in One God: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. In the mass that I attended this morning, Bishop Raul Martires states that the Blessed Trinity is not a “mystery to be solved but a mystery to be lived.”

He then shares with us a daily habit of his that he enjoined all of the mass-goers to practice as a way of increasing our devotion to the Blessed Trinity.

Set aside a few minutes at the end of the day to pray and reflect.

First, start with the good, positive things that happened to you throughout the day that has just finished. Give thanks to God the Father.

Next, reflect on all the negative things that you may have done. You may have been angry at someone. You may have complained needlessly. Ask for forgiveness from Jesus, God the Son.

Finally, look forward to the things that have yet to come. The events of the coming day. Things that need to be accomplished. Invoke God the Holy Spirit and ask for guidance and direction.

Just a few minutes of reflection to end your day. May your life be fuller and more meaningful as you take on this daily habit.
