Reflection 294: Never Tire of Contemplating the Trinity


Do you understand what you will be doing for all eternity?  Heaven, if we are blessed to obtain it, will be an existence of eternal contemplation of the Most Holy Trinity.  Though there is no time in Heaven, imagine if there were.  And then imagine contemplating the Trinity for a million years in a row.  Would you eventually become tired of this life and find boredom in it?  Never in a million years and beyond!  It’s essential that you regularly remind yourself of the life you will live in Heaven in this perpetual contemplation of God.  Though there is no way you can understand what this life will be like, you must try to comprehend it nonetheless.  At very least, understanding that you can never understand and comprehending that you will never comprehend is at least a good start.  The Trinity is a mystery that we will never solve; rather, it’s a mystery that we must enter into.  Begin your eternal contemplation of the Trinity today and allow this contemplation to draw you into the infinite Mercy of God (See Diary #1439).

Ponder today this great mystery.  It may seem beyond you, and it most certainly is.  But try anyway to spend some time trying to comprehend the unfathomable mystery of God.  In truth, this is not something you can do on your own.  Only God can draw you into this holy contemplation, but you must accept His invitation.  Say “Yes” today and allow the merciful hand of our Lord to begin drawing you into the immense depths of His love.

Oh Most Holy Trinity, I adore You with profound adoration and love.  Please take hold of my soul and draw me into the mystery of Your very life.  Reveal to me the secrets of Your inner heart and help me to begin my journey into eternity with You today.  I love You, my God.  Help me to love You with all my heart.  Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I trust in You.
