Truth and mercy - Part six
Solemnity of the Most Blessed Trinity
Dear sisters and brothers in Christ,
This Sunday we celebrate the solemnity of the Most Blessed Trinity. The Church invites us to contemplate the mystery of God, his nature, his inner life, his action in the history of salvation. We know, because God himself has revealed to us, that in God there is a communion of persons because God is love.
On more than one occasion in the Exhortation Amoris Laetitia, that we are reading together, Pope Francis refers to this revealed truth, pointing out that it is precisely because of that fact that the family founded on the communion of love and life between a man and a woman is a sign at once imperfect and precious of the Most Blessed Trinity.
Have you gone through divorce? Are you hurting because of a separation? Are you in need of healing?
Our support group for separated and divorced persons meets every Wednesday at 6:30 PM in Barry Hall.
Read the Post-Synodal Apostolic exhortation of Pope Francis on love in the family.

Help our brothers and sisters in Ecuador
