May They Rest in Peace
The Trinity is an expression of God in dialogue with the world, with mankind and with the Chosen People among whom he was present by his covenant.
Moses addressed the people of Israel before crossing the Jordan to enter the Promised Land and reminds them of the saving events by which God had brought them to that moment. The people are urged to keep God’s commandments so that they may have life in him. Christian recognition of one God in three persons came at the end of a long development of Jewish religious thought. God was seen as the only, but never lonely, God – a personal God in continuous dialogue with his people through word and sign.
The full unfolding of Christian revelation: God is Father of Jesus Christ, his only Son, God like himself. The Spirit
makes us children of God and co-
The Father calls all the nations, the Son gathers them in one by Baptism; the church continues to be born of The Trinity. The mission which the Risen Lord gave to the disciple and their heirs and successors is to mediate the power of the glorified Christ by baptising ‘in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit’ and by bringing the nations in to discipleship. The promise is that the Risen Christ will be with his disciples until the end of time.

The Lord is God indeed: he and no other. Moses said to the people: ‘Put this question to the ages that are past, that went before you, from the time God created man on earth: Was there ever a word so majestic, from one end of heaven to the other? Was anything ever heard? Did ever a people hear the voice of the living God speaking from the heart of the fire, as you heard it, and remain alive? Has any god ventured to take to himself one nation from the midst of another by ordeals, signs, wonders, war with mighty hand and outstretched arm, by fearsome terrors – all this that the Lord your God did for you before your eyes in Egypt? ‘Understand this today, therefore, and take it to heart: the Lord is God indeed, in heaven above as on earth beneath, he and no other. Keep his laws and commandments as I give them to you today, so that you and your children may prosper and live long in the land that the Lord your God gives you for ever.’
The Spirit himself and our spirit bear united witness that we are children of God. Everyone moved by the Spirit is a son of God. The spirit you received is not the spirit of slaves bringing fear into your lives again; it is the spirit of sons, and it makes us cry out, ‘Abba, Father!’ The Spirit himself and our spirit bear united witness that we are children of God. And if we are children we are heirs as well: heirs of God and co-
Go and make disciples of all nations. The eleven disciples set out for Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had arranged to meet them. When they saw him they fell down before him, though some hesitated. Jesus came up and spoke to them. He said, ‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go, therefore, make disciples of all the nations; baptise them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teach them to observe all the commands I gave you. And know that I am with you always; yes, to the end of time.’
