The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity
The author of Deuteronomy in today’s first reading outlines how God the Father has manifested His love and plan to the Israelite people. This chosen race, a holy priesthood, was charged with the mission to bring the love of the Father to the rest of the world. God’s divine plan continued when Jesus Christ came onto the scene, the living embodiment of God the Father. Jesus was then baptized in the Jordan River by St. John to give further identity to those who seek to follow God’s will as His beloved sons and daughters. From this identity as God’s beloved sons and daughters comes one’s mission and purpose in life.
