Trinity Sunday marks the grand transition from Eastertide to Ordinary Time. To launch us into common time properly oriented, the readings for this Sunday remind us of the awesome work of the three persons of the Trinity. God creates. Jesus saves. The Holy Spirit speaks. Jesus promised that an Advocate would come after his death, resurrection and ascension. What we see in these readings is how that Advocate, the Holy Spirit, is the same Spirit that was present with God at creation. The Spirit is the spirit of wisdom. Proverbs rehearses all that Wisdom has seen and all of the places it has been. We come away with the assurance that Wisdom has seen everything and been everywhere. Thus, the wisdom the Holy Spirit offers freely can be trusted completely. All we have to do is pay attention, listen, and then live as wisdom suggests. Join us on Sunday as we celebrate the saving wonder of the Trinity.
