Homily for Holy Trinity Sunday Yr. B
Deuteronomy 32-34, 39-40
CALL TO RELATIONSHIP
Beloved in Christ, we are invited today to reflect on the mystery of the most Holy Trinity not so much in the context of trying to understand it mathematically but in terms of it implication for our Christian life. We are not here to celebrate the arguments of why we have three persons in God but to reflect on the implication of the mystery of the three persons in one God for our Christian life.
My dear friends, as Christians we are called to be relational, thus we are called to live a life of relationships in the context of love and respect for each other. We are not to look down upon anybody because of our privilege positions in this life. For God the Father never disregarded God the Son and God the Holy Spirit but in unity they worked for the salvation of humanity.
Also though charged with different roles in the story of man’s salvation, the Holy Trinity exhibited unity in diversity in the sense that the Father never claimed to be the Son and the Son never claimed to be the Holy Spirit.
Beloved, being different from each other does not make you better than me or me inferior to you. Let us therefore appreciate our differences and use them for the glory of God, for God has a reason for creating us differently.
My dear friends, how do we relate to one another ?. Do you look down on your neighbor because you think you are better than him or her. This celebration reminds us that being different from each other is for a particular reason, therefore we are not called to a life uniformity but to a life of unity in diversity.
Beloved, let us cherish our differences by seeing it as an expression of the mystery of the Most Holy Trinity.
May our celebration of the Holy Trinity leads to a deeper understanding of who we are and also our responsibility in contributing to a better world. We are to use this celebration to reflect on who we are and what God expects us to be .
This is a charge we cannot ignore especially as Ghanaians in our present democratic dispensation where we are being divided along political party lines to the extent that we even see ourselves as rivals who cannot work together. But if Ghana is our common interest then why can’t we work together. Let us give a concrete expression to this celebration by overcoming the selfishness that is dividing us into enemies and see ourselves as compliment to each other.
