Wednesday of the Fourth Week of Lent
Quantum physics, pictures from Mars, and a better understanding that we are all stardust have connected everyone and everything. Having emerged from billions of years of evolution, we human beings are becoming more conscious of our connection. We realize we are becoming one Whole. The driving force of evolution is love.
As we get closer to Holy Week, the gospel readings sometime show the close connection between God the Father and God the Son. Today’s gospel, for example, states, “The Son cannot do anything on his own, but only what he sees the Father doing; for what he does, the Son will do also.” The Trinity is community, the life-giving, love-giving Source from which all else flows. Some refer to the Trinity as the Divine Dance. All creation is invited to join the dance. Had Jesus not taught us about the Trinity or said, “Whoever has seen me has seen the Father,” we would never have been able to imagine such Community, such Creativity, such Love. Let us adore in awe. Let us also be a connector today, extending the divine love to others.
