A reflection on the Gospel for Most Holy Trinity

The other day I was surprised by a little girl’s comment. She said, her mother, a professional wanted her to reach even greater heights than she had. Usually we don’t want anyone to surpass us, but when it comes to our children, we are willing to do just about anything. We make all kinds of sacrifices so our children can get ahead. We want them to have a better life than we had; to go further, no matter what it may cost or the sacrifices entailed. On the other hand, sometimes we feel so close to a person, it feels like a physical union. We think the same way, share the same gestures, enjoy the same things, and suffer over the same causes. Through our faith we know we are made in the image and likeness of God and that God is love. Therefore, we can understand to a certain point the love God has for his children and we are surprised to learn that it is infinitely bigger than our love, which is already a lot.

Una reflexión sobre el Evangelio del Domingo de La Santísima Trinidad

Me sorprendió el comentario de una niña el otro día. Dijo que su mamá, una profesional, quería que ella llegase aún más alto. Normalmente no nos gusta que nadie nos supere pero, tratándose de nuestros hijos, estaríamos dispuestos a cualquier cosa. Hacemos toda clase de sácrificios para que salgan adelante. Queremos que tengan una vida mejor que la que tuvimos nosotros. Que vayan más allá, por mucho que eso nos cueste personalmente y por muchos sacrificios que nos imponga. Por otro lado, a veces nos sentimos tan unidos a una persona, que se nos hace como que es una unión física. Pensamos igual, a veces tenemos los mismos gestos, nos gustan las mismas cosas y sufrimos por las mismas causas. Como por nuestra fe sabemos que estamos hechos a imagen y semejanza de Dios y que Dios es amor, podemos, por lo tanto, comprender hasta cierto punto el amor de Dios por sus hijos y nos sorprende saber que es infinitamente más grande que lo que nosotros podamos amar, que ya es mucho.

Prayer of the Blessed Trinity

Lord God, our Father you are my God. Let your wisdom direct me, your grace keep me, your love Rejoice me, your truth protect me, your power guard me. Jesus Christ, God’s Son, my brother and my Savior. That you became man is my joy. I want to go your way; your suffering be my victory, your disgrace my honor, your death my life, your resurrection my comfort. Holy spirit, God, you are my comfort, convert me, for I am sinful person. Bring me back to life, for I am dead. Awaken me for I am sleeping. Make me ready for eternal life.

Oracion a la Santisima Tinidad

Padre Dios, nuestro Padre tu eres my Dios. Deja que tu sabiduria me dirije, que tu gracia me me tome, que tu amor me Reviva, tu verdad me proteja, que tu poder me guarde. Jesucrito, Hijo de Dios, my hermano mi Salvador. Que te conviertas hombre de felicidad. Yo quiero irme por tu camino; tu sufrimiento sea mi Victoria, tu desgracia mi honor, tu muerte mi vida, tu resurrection mi comodidad. Espititu Santo, Dios tu eres mi comodidad, convierte me, por que yo soy un pecador. Devuelveme la vida, por que estoy muerto. Dispiertame por que estoy dormiendo. Preparame para la vida eternal.
