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!
