By: Sharon NelsenThe readings for Holy Trinity Sunday ignite a canticle within me:
***Blest are You, God the Father, Jesus, the Only Begotten Son of God and the Holy Spirit Who have shown us merciful love. (Entrance Antiphon)
You delight in us day by day
Playing Your symphony on the surface of creation,
Delighting in us, Your song;
O Lord, our God, how wonderful your name in all the earth!
Who are we that You should be mindful of us?
You have made us little less than the angels,
You have crowned us with glory and honor;
You have given us rule over the works of your hands
You have put all things under our feet. (Psalm 8.5-7)
Thank you for pouring Your Love into our hearts
Through the Holy Spirit that You have given to us. (Romans 5.5)
Thank you for your Spirit of Truth who guides us to all truth.
Thank you, Jesus, that everything the Father has is Yours
And is shared with us, (John 16.15) especially the Spirit
Who cries out within us: Abba, Father. (Communion Antiphon)
Thank You, Dear Father God, our loving, beneficent, merciful and forgiving Creator.
Thank You, Blessed Brother Jesus, for carrying Heaven to Earth;
for birthing us into Your Family now and forever.
Thank You, Powerful Holy Spirit, for nurturing us into intimacy with God and with one another.
