GOSPEL  REFLECTION – The Trinity.

Elizabeth Johnson describes the Trinity as a flowering plant with its deep invisible root (God) its green stem reaching into the world from that root (Son) and its flower (Spirit) which opens to spread beauty and fragrance and to fructify the earth with fruit and seed. And it is all the one living plant.  We are invited into community with God, to take our place at the table and embrace the relationship that is offered to us. God is community, a community built on love in all its forms. As we bless ourselves today, remember that we are symbolising that great mystery of God, that community of persons, the relationships of love that we are invited into, relationships of giving and receiving, relationships of community and life.
