St. Alexander Church at 300 S Cornell, Villa Park, IL 60181 US - Home
This weekend we celebrate the feast of the Holy Trinity. This of course is one of the greatest mysteries of the Church that our God is three persons yet one God, the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. No matter how hard we try we cannot possibly fully understand this yet it is something we draw comfort from because in each person of the Trinity, we can find a different yet important way of relating to God. In the Father we have our creator and our protector; we look to him for take care of us like a loving parent would take care of their children. In Jesus the Son we look for that compassion of God and the closeness of a friend; we get that sense and knowledge that through the Son God is walking very closely with us every single day. The Holy Spirit for me has always been that source of love and ministry that God gives us; through the Holy Spirit he calls us into action and leads us to use our gifts for his glory. I may not fully understand the Trinity, but I can appreciate the variety of ways that God touches my life through the Trinity. Each and every day we should take time in our prayer to thank God that he gives us such variety in our relationship with him, that he truly is everything to us.
St. Alexander...pray for us
God Bless, Fr. Mark
