O Most Holy Trinity

The three divine persons in one God: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

Medium: Pastel and Coloured Pencil

Who are you O my God? And who am I in Your sight?

These questions unlock the secret of our identity as human persons.  We cannot understand ourselves apart from God, because we are made in His image and likeliness, and He created us for Himself.  The human heart is a God-shaped space that only He can fill.

The purpose of Catholic Christianity is union with God – a union that provides for authentic self-actualization. Whenever we try to quench the desires of our hearts with anything less that God Himself, we end up confused, disillusioned and empty, a wanderer in a dark chaos that eclipses our ultimate destiny. In an age in which people seek to define themselves by themselves, we are called to discover our true identity in relation to Another: Our Creator, our Saviour, and our Advocate.

The Christian God is not a concept, an energy, or an impersonal force. He is a Person, or rather, one God in three divine Persons: The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

God is a Family. God is Love. The Father loves the Son without limit. The Son loves the Father without limit. The Holy Spirit is the very Love of the Father and the Son, Who is poured into our own hearts to the extent that we welcome Him: “So we know and believe the love God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God abides in him” (1 John 4:16).

God is the Family into which we are adopted at Baptism. God is the Father with Whom we are reconciled in the Sacrament of Penance. God is the Lover by Whom we are espoused and embraced in every Communion. God is the Power Who is received into our souls at Confirmation. Through the ministry of the Church, we are invited into the limitless love of God, a love that demands our limitless love in return: “If a man loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him” (John 14:23).

The keeping of God’s Word leads to life: “I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly” (John 10:10). The living of God’s law leads to joy: “These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full” (John 15:11). We need never fear losing ourselves in God, because His Commandments are a roadmap that guide us into our true identity. May we find ourselves in God, and may the joy of His Presence within us lead our wandering neighbours into the glorious freedom of this discovery!
