May 26, 2024 – The Holy Trinity

The Holy Trinity

One of the most beloved hymns of the Church is “Holy, Holy, Holy.” The threefold holy we sing in this work echoes the praise of the seraphim in today’s Old Testament Reading. We could also say that there is a threefold “only” in today’s Gospel. As we listen in on Jesus’ nighttime conversation with Nicodemus, we learn that we can believe heavenly things only by birth from above, only by a washing of water and Spirit, and only because Jesus speaks for the Father. On this Holy Trinity Sunday, we give thanks for these gracious gifts from the only true God—the Trinity—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit!
