Mt 28: 16-20

Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.”

Three musical keys

One of St. Ignatius’ mystical visions was of the Trinity as three musical keys. He likely was familiar with the high-pitched, faint overtones produced by male choirs in resonant churches. Like the persons of the Trinity, these overtones are both distinct from the root pitch and of one essence with it. If the fundamental pitch did not exist, neither would the resulting harmony. The Trinity is diversity-in-unity; it is communion. As the body of Christ, we too are called to model this loving communion, from the Father, through the Son, in the Holy Spirit.

Do you recognize the rich gift of others who sing a note different from you? How can you actively work toward and pray for this communion of all people both inside and outside the Church?

Prayer

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son,
and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be,
world without end. Amen.

—Traditional prayer
