Short Reflection for the Pentecost Sunday (A)
Readings: Exodus 34: 4-6. 8-9; 2 Corinthians 13: 11-13; John 3: 16-18
Selected Passage: “For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life.” (John 3: 16)
Meditation: We begin to understand the one Triune God through the contemplation of God as LOVE. Fr. Cantalamessa in his homily for the Feast states that in every love there are always three realities or subjects: one who loves, one who is loved and the love that unites them.
Where God is understood as absolute power, there is no need for there to be more than one person, for power can be exercised quite well by one person; but if God is understood as absolute love, then it cannot be this way. The life of the Trinity is a mystery of relation. This means that the divine persons do not “have” relations, but rather “are” relations. www.badaliyya.blogspot.com
