Holy Trinity

Today is Holy Trinity Sunday.  I remember the first time I struggled with this.  I was in the second grade studying for my first communion.  It is such a mystery and yet there is such clarity in the idea.  Why should it not be true is how I often think of it for God is so much more than our thoughts could possibly imagine.  My second grade self knew this!!

I have often heard the Pope talking about an adult faith.  I have often read and heard him talk about being childlike in our faith.  As I prepare for the coming year of faith I know that my faith is immature, it is not quite adult.  It is also not childlike for I am too cynical and worldly, too angry and emotional, too selfish.  This is the thought I will pursue more this summer: How do I become more adult and childlike?  I am going to connect with my second grade self, 40 something years later!

I am a practicing Catholic in love with the Lord. Whatever his failings, I recognize the same in our Pope Emeritus, Benedict XVI. He serves as one of my great teachers. A truly misunderstood figure, I hope all who have reviled him might actually read him and find their way to God.
