TODAY’S THEME: “BLESSED BE THE HOLY TRINITY”
In the last verses of Matthew’s Gospel, Jesus gives His final command to the disciples, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo I am with you always, even to the end of the age.” It is in this command to baptize the nations that we have the clearest expression of the Holy Trinity in all of Scripture. We are baptized “in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” In our Baptism the triune God of love is revealed to us. Through catechesis, “teaching them to observe all things,” the mystery of the Holy Trinity is revealed to us. The God of the first commandment is the Triune God: “You shall have no other gods.” The unique work of the three persons and their relationship to each other and to us is revealed in the Apostles’ Creed. We approach God the Father, through the Son, by the faith given by the Holy Spirit in the Lord’s Prayer, etc., etc., etc., Each chief part of the Catechism reveals “all things” we need to know and believe about the Holy Trinity for our salvation.
