Dear Friends,

Today we celebrate the mystery of God himself, the Blessed Trinity. It is a mystery that can seem remote and impenetrable. But today’s readings reveal that God is personally engaged with humanity: a God who is leading us to truth, who is poured into our hearts and who delights to be at play with the sons of men.

God bless,

Father James
