Most Holy Trinity

Jn 16: 12-15

“I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.When the Spirit of truth comes, he will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own, but will speak whatever he hears, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. He will glorify me, because he will take what is mine and declare it to you. All that the Father has is mine. For this reason I said that he will take what is mine and declare it to you.

The Image of the Trinity

Today, we celebrate the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity. The Trinity is not a distant or abstract concept, but rather it is something that is very near and dear to us. It is the most complete and dynamic image of love. When we speak about the Trinity, we speak about a united and loving community. We speak about an image of God who completely opens himself up to each one of us in unity and compassion. We are all created in God’s image. Therefore, each one of us is called to live in the image of the Trinity. This means that we must compassionately open and share our lives with our family and friends, with our community, and with those who are being marginalized from our society. In doing so, the mystery of the Trinity will be a living reality.

—Fr. Francis Nguyen, SJ, is a member of the Jesuits West Province who was ordained a priest on June 8, 2019 in Portland, OR at Our Lady of La Vang Church.  His first assignment as a priest will be at Most Holy Trinity Church in San Jose, CA.

DAILY EXAMEN

Daily Examen

The examen is a prayer popularized by St. Ignatius Loyola that helps us to recognize the ways that God is present and active in our daily lives.

  1. Stillness: Quiet yourself. Close your eyes and be still. Remember that in this moment you are in God’s presence and that God is now loving you. Take time to let yourself be looked at by the Lord.
  2. Gratitude: Take a few moments to recall one or two things from today for which you are especially grateful. Give thanks to God for these gifts and take time to savor them.
  3. Review: Review the events of the past day from start to finish, as if you were watching a movie. Notice the ways that God has been present today. Pay attention to your emotions and stirrings within your heart.
  4. Sorrow: As you have reflected upon your day, you may have noticed a moment from the day in which you have fallen short. Bring this experience to prayer and ask for God’s healing and forgiveness.
  5. Looking Forward: Look ahead to the next day and ask for God’s help and grace as you move forward with activities, commitments, and interactions with others. When you are ready, conclude your examen with the Our Father.
