The Preface for this Sunday of the Holy Trinity says:
Father, all-powerful and ever living God,
we do well always and everywhere to give you thanks.
We joyfully proclaim our faith in the mystery of your Godhead.
You have revealed your glory as the glory also of your Son and of the Holy Spirit: three Persons equal in majesty, undivided in splendor, yet one Lord, one God,
ever to be adored in your everlasting glory.
Benedict XVI has this to say about the Blessed Trinity (taken from "Magnificat"):
" The 'name' of the Blessed Trinity is, in a certain sense, imprinted upon all things bacause all that exists, down to the last particle is in relation; in this way we catch a glimpse of God as relationship and ultimately, Creator Love. All things derive from love, aspire to love, and move impelled by love, though naturally with varying degrees of awareness and freedom..."
Benedict also says that the strongest proof that we are made in the image of the Trinity is this: "Love alone makes us happy because we live in a relationship, and we live to love and to be loved."
I love the joyfully proclaim our faith in this mystery.
