Jesus said to Nicodemus: “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.

For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him.

Whoever believes in Him will not be condemned, but whoever does not believe has already been condemned, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God.”


The simplest way to honor the Most Holy Trinity is to begin every day by making the Sign of the Cross with deep faith and devotion, paying special attention to the words that we say: “In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen!” Then worship the Triune God in your heart by reciting the prayer “Glory Be . . .” and the Creed through which we renew our faith in the tri-personal God from whom we come, in whom we live, and in whom we will find our eternal happiness.

Then thank the Blessed Trinity for all the graces and favors received so far, ask for His protection during the day, and offer Him all the actions that you will perform and the pains that you will endure. In this way, all that you are and do will be offered as a “living sacrifice of love” to the God who is our Creator, Redeemer, Sanctifier and Source of our happiness.

These prayers can be repeated during the day, especially the shorter ones as simple acts of love and worship. The Sign of the Cross should be made also before every important action that we do, such as when we begin our daily activity, before and after taking our meals, when we travel, when we feel tempted or in danger.

Every day should end in the same way we should begin it. Our final thought should be an act of entrustment of ourselves and all those who are dear to us to the Most Holy Trinity.

In addition to honoring the Trinity through our prayers, we should also make every effort to become in our daily lives a reflection of the “personal loving communion” which the Blessed Trinity is.

We do that by relating with respect, openness, and love to all human beings, and especially the members of our family, colleagues and other people we interact with. It is only by respecting and loving our neighbor that we can say that we respect and love the Blessed Trinity, for He dwells in each human being. As St. John says, “One who has no love for the brother he has seen cannot love the God he has not seen” (1 Jn 4:20).

As families celebrate with love the importance of human Fatherhood today, we likewise gratefully acknowledge our Infinite Source of Eternal Love and Divine Providence that emanates from our Heavenly Father.

For all that we are and all that we have comes from Him, through Him and by Him. His Perfect Love for us is so great that He didn't withhold His very own Son for our sake; so that all of mankind may ultimately be reconciled and united through Jesus Christ.

May this acknowledgment prayer be lovingly recited in our grateful hearts not only today but everyday of our lives to thank Him for unceasingly providing us with eternal graces as His ever dependent children.
