After Pentecost, the Season of Easter comes to an end and we re-enter “Ordinary Time.” “Ordinary” liturgically does not imply humdrum or everyday routine but focuses our attention “on Sunday” as the culmination of creation (Genesis) and on the Resurrection of Jesus, the Lord of Life. Although we are back to wearing the color green on weekdays, on the first two Sundays of this cycle of Ordinary Time, we wear white vestments as we celebrate the Solemnities of The Most Holy Trinity (June 15-16) and The Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ or Corpus Christi (June 22-23). 

 

Although the mystery of God as Holy Trinity is defined at later Ecumenical Councils, the revelation of God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit is found in Sacred Scripture. In the Gospel according to John, Jesus speaks of being one with the Father and the Father sending the Holy Spirit in his name i.e. Jesus. Human words are inadequate to describe both oneness and relationship, unity and community of God. Sanctifying grace is God’s divine life and love in us. God with us. Emmanuel. The mystery of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ expresses our faith in the sacramental presence of Jesus in the consecrated bread and wine. With reverence we receive the Body and Blood of Christ – the precious gift of his life shed on the cross.
