The Trinity

A big smile from heaven!(C) Mary TV/Anthony Zubac 2019     May 3, 2019 Sts. Philip and James Dear Family of Mary! Our Lady spoke very encouraging words to us on May 2: Dear children, with a motherly love I am calling you to respond to the great love of my Son, with pure and open hearts, with complete trust. I know the greatness of His love. I carried Him within me, the Host in the heart, the light and the love of the world. My children,also my addressing you is a sign of the love and tenderness of the Heavenly Father-a big smile filled with the love of my Son, a call to eternal life… “ (May 2, 2019) Our Lady is expressing to us her complete certainty that Jesus is total love for us, and that the Father has sent her as a sign of His tender love for us. She likens that love to “a big smile filled with love…” Isn’t the Holy Spirit that big smile!!! Don’t we need to see that smile!! Don’t we need the comfort of God’s limitless, complete, and merciful love for each one of us!! Yes, we do!! You know, her words remind me that she experiences the Trinity in heaven in a way we do not understand. She speaks of love. Jesus’s love, the Father’s love!! That love is the Holy Spirit! So she is expressing to us her deep knowledge of the Trinity in her simple and beautiful way. We are loved by Love itself!! St. Faustina experienced the Trinity in a deep way, once, in a spiritual experience. She wrote: (911) On one occasion, God’s presence pervaded my whole being, and my mind was mysteriously enlightened in respect to His Essence. He allowed me to understand His interior life. In spirit, I saw the Three Divine Persons, but Their Essence was One. He is One, and One only, but in Three Persons; none of Them is either greater or smaller; there is no difference in either beauty or sanctity, for They are One. They are absolutely One. His Love transported me into this knowledge and united me with Himself. When I was united to One, I was equally united to the Second and to the Third in such a way that when we are united with One, by that very fact, we are equally united to the two Persons in the same way as with the One. Their will is One, one God, though in Three Persons. When One of the Three Persons communicates with a soul, (269) by the power of that one will, it finds itself united with the Three Persons and is inundated in the happiness flowing from the Most Holy Trinity, the same happiness that nourishes the saints. This same happiness that streams from the Most Holy Trinity makes all creation happy; from it springs that life which vivifies and bestows all life which takes its beginning from Him. In these moments, my soul experienced such great divine delights that I find this difficult to express. (Diary, 911) As we experience the love of God, expressed in the Three Persons, may we be as filled with courage as St. Faustina was, and as strong in love as Our Lady is. The more we know God, the more we will love Him and then the more we will serve Him!!! In Jesus, Mary and Joseph! Cathy Nolan ©Mary TV 2019
