On this Solemn Feast of the Most Holy Trinity we celebrate the life with share with God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Just as we have a unique relationship with each member of our family – our father, our mother, our sibling(s) – so too, upon reflection, our relationship with each member of the Holy Trinity is unique. Each person, united in their divinity, has its unique ‘personality’ and ‘function’ in the Trinity. I came to a particular awareness of this in the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, as a novice, and began to appreciate more that relationship with each as St. Ignatius directs the retreatant to direct their prayer to a particular person of the Trinity for a particular grace. Try it some time!
