The Catechetical Review - Communicating Christ for a New Evangelization

To Pray in the Holy Trinity

Authored by Catechist from the Ivory Coast in Issue #29.4 of The Sower
This beautiful, contemplative piece is taken from a Belgian catechetical journal, Parole et Partage, and was written by a catechist working on the ivory coast. Many Christians say, ‘It isn’t important to me to know that there are three persons in God’. This is a pity, because if God makes known to us this mystery of the Most Holy Trinity, it is not so that we can become more learned, but so that we can live from it. God, who has made us his children, wishes to introduce us into the very heart of his Love; he wants us to love the Son with the love of the Father, and the Father with the love of the Son. This is what the Holy Spirit will do in our hearts, if we let him, he who is the love uniting the Father and the Son. What joy! God wants to introduce us, by prayer, into the intimacy of his life of love. Understanding this will deepen and enlarge our prayer.
