In the Gospel for the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity, Evangelist John testifies that God sent the Son to give life.  “God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him might not perish but might have eternal life” (John 3: 16). God loves us so generously.  God gave himself to us in Jesus.  Jesus loved unconditionally.  He even loved those who put him to death.  The Risen Lord loves us with the unbelievably generous and merciful love of God.  This Holy Spirit of love empowers Christians to give of themselves in love to their spouses, children, neighbors, church and local community, the lonely, forgotten, disregarded and all those in need of help.  How do you give of yourself in love for others?
