Introduction

God shares himself with us through the three persons of the Trinity. We share the love of God the Father, the goodness of Jesus the Son, and the friendship of the Holy Spirit.

Opening Prayer (Psalm 15:2-3)

Help us, Lord, to do what is right. 
Make our words and thoughts true and sincere,
so that we harm no one by what we say or do.

Gospel (Matthew 28:16-20)

Jesus appeared to his disciples on a hillside where they had arranged to meet. When they saw him they fell to their knees and he said to them, "All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me, and I am sending you out into the world to make disciples of all peoples. Bapitze them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teach them to obey all the commandments I have given to you. Remember that I will always be with you, to the very end of time.

Reflection

Ask: When do we pray the Sign of the Cross? (at the beginning of our prayers, when we bless ourselves with holy water, at the beginning of Mass)

Say:
Whenever we make the Sign of the Cross, we are recalling a central mystery of our faith that expresses what we believe about God. What do we believe about God that is expressed in the Sign of the Cross? (We believe in the Holy Trinity: one God who is three Persons—God the Father, Jesus the son, and the Holy Spirit.) Say: At the heart of our understanding of the Holy Trinity is the confidence that God loves us.

Say:
Today’s Gospel talks about why and how God acts. We come to know who God is by what God does for us. What does our Gospel tell us about what God does and why? (God sent Jesus to save the world because God loves the world.) Say: The Holy Spirit is given to us so that we might believe that God loves us and wants to give us eternal life. The Trinity is a way that we talk about how we experience God’s love for us.
