If God is one, how can He be three? The most intelligent theologians have racked their brains over the problem, and the most prayerful ones have surrendered to the mystery. How it can be, we can't explain.

But what it means, we can join! Our God is an ever-unfolding relationship. Theologians speak of the immanent and economic Trinity. The Trinity is immanent in the sense that the Persons are close and entirely sufficient within Godself. In other words, God doesn't require us for God to exist. The word economic is rooted in the Greek word for

management of a household or family. The Trinity is economic in the sense that God has invited us to be part of Him. He's growing the family!

We see the dynamic here in today's Gospel.

Jesus says the Spirit "will take from what is mine and declare it to you" and that "everything that the Father has is mine." There is relationship here.

Jesus speaks (and is) the word of the Father. The Holy Spirit speaks what He hears from the Son. The Father gives everything to the Son, and the Spirit speaks that inheritance over us. God invites us into the Trinitarian family!

The doctrine of the Trinity isn't something to brush off as overwhelming.

After all, "the Spirit of truth... will guide you to all truth." This occurs most perfectly in the Church, who protects all that has been revealed by God in Scripture and gradually unpacked in tradition. We can trust the declarations of Her theologians and learn from the lives of Her saints. The Trinity may be a mystery, but, by the grace of God, we can have real truth about who God is and how we can love like Him.

St. Ann’s CCW is looking for a President and a Vice President. If you would be interested in serving in a leadership role for this organization,

The Church is one, holy, catholic, and apostolic. That oneness is mirrored for us in the Holy Trinity: one God in three Persons. We are a diverse community with different backgrounds, cultures, realities, and gifts, but we are truly one. Unfortunately, we too often forget this and function as a fractioned body. We needlessly compete against one another, judge one another as opposed to help, and sit silent when our brothers and sisters call out for help.

When we take seriously our stewardship way of life, we see our lives as not truly belonging to ourselves. We want to offer our very existence to God and the Body of Christ. If we find that we are resistant to that fullness of generosity, or we begin to use our gifts in a way that fractures community, we then actively work in contrast to this mark of the Church.

The Church that was established by Jesus and fortified by the institution of the sacraments cannot be destroyed and deprived of Her four marks. The human element may be strained and injured, but not even the gates of hell will prevail against this institution alive in the Spirit. Our actions can either bear witness to that reality or it can bring offense. Let us pray that enough of us will choose the holy way so all the world may see that God is real, Jesus is alive, and we are ONE.

-Tracy Earl Welliver, MTS This week I wanted to give you an update on the

financial situation of St. Joseph parish since the end of the fiscal year is fast approaching on June 30, the day of my departure for Winona.

Last week, I summarized All Saints parish and next week, I will summarize St. Ann.

First I want to thank the parish trustees, finance council, and pastoral council members whose names and terms of office are listed below. I appreciate their service to the parish.

The parish family has done a great job maintaining your beautiful church and I would encourage you to keep doing so. My hope and prayer is that you will continue to invite and welcome newcomers as well as those who may have been more distant from the practice of their faith. I’m especially grateful for all the volunteers who make things happen. The choir is faithful and you keep improving all the time.

Most recently it was decided to rent the rectory house and I’m thankful to Brad Stenzel for heading up this project. It will be nice to have the house being used and also a little bit of extra income.

Thanks to the folks who came over to help empty the house last weekend. Many hands make for light work for everyone involved!

Going forward, I would encourage you to maintain well the rectory house and possibly consider further updates to the parish hall. Continue to shore up the cemetery perpetual care fund and general

cemetery operations. Please continue to be successful for the Catholic Ministry Appeal—you have succeeded in reaching and exceeding your goal for the last 5 years. This past week, you have exceeded your goal for the boiler project! As usual keep regularly sacrificing for the good of the parish.
