The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity
Reflection 11 for June 15, 2014
Text (Gospel Story) John 3:16-1815, 2014
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. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world but that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him will not be condemned, but whoever does not believe has already been condemned, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.
(Leader) O Holy Trinity, three Persons in one, we pray,
(Together) Keep us in the circle of your love.
(Leader) For all peoples of the earth, created in God’s image,
(Together) May we work toward reconciliation and peace.
(Leader) For all of us gathered together,
(Together) May our love and service bear witness to God’s care.
(Leader) For all who share in the faith of the Catholic Church,
(Together) May we grow in unity, peace and truth.
Sharing the Mission
St Vincent de Paul prayed: “O my God, may it please you to be the bond which ties the hearts of evangelisers together in a common attitude of humility, of unity, and of respect for one another…Let the good effects of their mutual affection, which you allow to develop among them, steadily grow and flourish, and make the fruits of their labours for the salvation of souls constantly increase. Strengthen them in their efforts, and be yourself their ultimate reward.”
Within your conference, how does the common bond you share in service create a place of humility, of unity and of respect for one another?
Keep your conference, the Society presidents and State Council in your prayers this week.
