From the Desk of Fr. Dennis

Your Love Awakens Me
You called me out of the grave
You called me into the Light
You called my name, and then my
heart came alive . . .
Your love is greater, Your love is stronger
Your love awakens, awaken, awaken me!

The mystery of the Most Holy Trinity bursts on to the scene today, writ large. However, our focus should be not on what we don’t’ know , but what we do know. We too easily dismiss the Trinity, maybe even admitting ‘it is beyond me.”
One God. Three Persons. Yet, as the verses of the contemporary Christian song demonstrate, our God awakens us. God is Love, and that Love creates us, redeems us, and sanctifies. Last week Pentecost saw the Holy Spirit rushing upon those in the upper room, a great wind and tongues of fire. From that moment, the Holy Spirit assumed the role of teaching us to pray, and sanctifying.
Try praying to the Trinity today, perhaps more slowly crossing ourselves with the Sign of the Cross. Pray in thanksgiving for the Most Holy Trinity’s indispensable role in your Holy Baptism.
Let your heart come alive . . .
United in the Trinity,
Reverend Dennis J. Vincenzo
