There is no doubting the mystery of the Most Holy Trinity. There have been many attempts to understand who God is as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. One suggests The Father is the origin of all things. He gives existence to the Son. The Son is the exact image of the Father. Yet they are separate. The Father gives himself totally in love to the Son, and the Son gives himself completely to the Father. From this mutual love emerges the third person, the Holy Spirit. We see a picture of a family relationship between three separate persons. Mutual self-giving in love is a clear direction for families to follow. The persons of the Trinity play their part in the Gospel for the feast, this year. The context is the final departure of Jesus from this world. Before leaving, he commissions the eleven apostles to continue his ministry. Go make disciples of all nations; baptise them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit."

The Apostles are to make disciples. A disciple is more than a follower. He is one who learns and continues to learn through life from Jesus and the Good news he has entrusted to us. The words of Jesus presume a ritual of initiation where baptism in the name of the Trinity is the way into membership of the church. Baptism brings us into communion with the persons of the Trinity, Father, and Holy Spirit.

The apostles are to teach the new disciples "to observe all the commands I gave." Jesus gave us many keys to good living. He goes beyond the very basic requirements of the Ten Commandments and encourage us to take on qualities that show great respect for other people. Jesus ends his commission with an assurance "that I am with you always; yes to the end of time." The Risen Christ remains with his people all the time as grace, support, and a port of call whenever we feel the need for help.
