“The feast of the Most Holy Trinity invites us to commit ourselves in the everyday events in order to be the leaven of communion, of consolation, and of mercy.”
The day’s Gospel reading from John, the pope explained, is taken from a portion of Jesus’ discourse shortly before his Passion, in which Christ outlines the relationship between the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Knowing that he must fulfill the Father’s plan through his own death and resurrection, Jesus assures the disciples that he will not abandon them, “because his mission will be continued by the Holy Spirit,” the Pope said.
He said that Jesus explains how the “Holy Spirit guides us in understanding the many things which Jesus himself still has to say.“
The Holy Spirit guides in new life situations, helping us to keep our gaze on Jesus, while being “open to events and to the future.”
“He helps us walk in history, firmly rooted in the Gospel, and with dynamic fidelity to our traditions and customs.”
“However, the mystery of the Trinity also speaks about us, our relationship with the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit,” Pope Francis said.
“God is a ‘family’ of three Persons who love each other so much as to form into one.”
Finally, Pope Francis turned to Mary, “the mirror of the Trinity, to reenforce our faith in the Trinitarian Mystery, and to embody it with choices and attitudes of love and unity.”
“We have far more in common than what divides us. When you talk about Pentecostals, charismatics, evangelicals, uh, fundamentalists, Catholics, Methodists, Baptists, Presbyterians, on and on and on and on.
“Well they would all say we believe in the trinity, we believe in the Bible, we believe in the resurrection, we believe salvation is through Jesus Christ. These are the big issues.Sometimes Protestants think that Catholics worship Mary like she’s another god. But that’s not exactly catholic doctrine. There’s the understanding, and, and people say well what are the saints all about? Why are you praying to the saints? And when you understand what they mean by what they’re saying there’s a whole lot more commonality. Now there’s still real differences, no doubt about that. But the most important thing is if you love Jesus, we’re on the same team. Rick Warren
The trinity doctrine has confused many a mind as to who exactly it is that comforts us and helps us. And yet the Word of God is very clear on this subject of who it is that dwellsin us, renewing us into the image of God. It is Jesus Himself! Look at what Jesus said concerning the ‘comforter’ …
John 14:16-17 …’And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.I will not leave you comfortless. I will come to you. Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also. At that day ye shall know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you.’
“we need to realize that the Holy Spirit, who is as much a person as God is a person, is WALKING through these grounds, UNSEEN by human eyes; that the Lord God is our Keeper and Helper. He hears every word we utter and knows every thought of the mind.” (Ellen G. White, Sermons and Talks Volume 2, pp. 136-137, 1899)
“There is no power in you apart from CHRIST, but it is your privilege to have Christ abiding in your heart by faith, and HE can OVERCOME SIN in you, when you cooperate with His efforts.” (Ellen G. White, Our High Calling, 76.5)
“When trials overshadow the soul, remember the words of Christ, remember that He is an unseen presence in the person of the Holy Spirit.” – (E.G. White, DG 185.2, 1897)
The trinity teaching is one of the biggest deceptions, and it will be used to unite the Christian world under Babylon. And many people do not realize that this is part of the deception concerning the mark, name and number of the beast. Please seek the truth, as the deceptions are getting stronger as we near the end!
