As we continue our faith journey, this Sunday we celebrate the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity.  Today’s Gospel reminds us that the mystery of faith is meant to be lived. As baptised Christians, we share in the life of the blessed Trinity and seek to invite others to share in God’s love.  In a world often divided by differences, let us heed His words and strive for unity. Just as branches are connected to the vine, we are interconnected in our shared humanity. Through love, we find strength, compassion, and the power to overcome any obstacle. In our interactions this week, let’s reflect on how we can embody Christ’s love in our words and actions, fostering unity and harmony wherever we go.  May the love of Christ unite us all as we continue to grow in faith and service.
