Welcome to St. Christopher Parish

Dear Family,

This weekend we celebrate the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity. Multiple times a day, we make the Sign of the Cross (or at least I hope it is multiple times!!) saying the words ‘In the Name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit’. Every Sunday at Mass, we recite the Creed together in which we re-affirm our belief in our Trinitarian God. But how often do we really think about what we are saying, whether it is the Sign of the Cross or the Creed? Have the words become so overly-familiar that we just say them, or are we really praying and meaning what we are stating? It is a good question for all of us, myself included! This Sunday, the Church calls us to truly reflect on the most amazing of mysteries; that our One God is Three Persons! There have been so many ways that people have tried to explain this mystery. The most widely known is St. Patrick’s use of the shamrock to explain it. In reality, all images known to humans are insufficient to help us understand our God. If we read the Old Testament, we will find references to the Trinity that only came to light with Jesus’ teachings that we find in the Gospels. We can spend our entire life here on earth trying to come to some deep understanding of the mystery of the Trinity. Yet what we will ultimately find is that it will remain a mystery that we accept by faith! Let us glory in God’s mystery every time we make the Sign of the Cross! Let us pray over the Nicene Creed seeking through our prayer some understanding of our One God who is Three Persons bound together by pure love!

Praised Be Jesus Christ…Now and Forever!!!
