The Feasts Of Love: Pentecost, Trinity Sunday, Corpus Christi
After the celebration of the Feast of Pentecost, we continue to meditate on the great mystery of God through the feast of Trinity Sunday. The Holy Spirit makes the work of the Trinity for our salvation present among us: The Spirit reminds us of what Jesus taught and reveals to us the Father.
We are made in God’s image and likeness. We reflect the life of God, and the Trinity shows us what the life of God is like: a loving communion. God is a communion of Persons who is Love itself. And that Love gives life, not just within the Trinity and all its “begettings” and “proceedings,” but outside, as well.
On the Thursday after Trinity Sunday we celebrate the Feast of Corpus Christi, where we solemnly commemorate the institution of the Holy Eucharist. The Eucharist reminds us of how closely God wants to be to us and remain with us. He remains with us not just as an abstract idea, but in a real, tangible, physical sense.
While these Feasts celebrate different themes, they come together with God’s life-giving love. It’s that love that’s embodied in the Sacred Heart, in the Trinity, and the Eucharist. The season of these feasts brings a beautiful message for all to see and feel the glory and mystery of God.
We pray that love is felt by you during these feasts and throughout the year.
Yours in Christ,
Gabrielle and the Lumen Mundi & Devon Team
