Scripture: John 17:20-23
Journal: How do you feel about this prayer that Jesus prays for you? How is it playing out in your life? How is the Trinity a model for the life God desires for us and among us?
Reflection: Out of the overflow of Divine Love we were dreamt into being, in order that we might participate in the intimacy and affection of the Trinity. In the words of Paul Marechal: "The Trinity is a round dance in which Love flames forth from one Person to the Other in a flow that never ceases. The Father is One and his Dance is Three: Love flaming out of the Silence of the Secret One, and returning to Abba in one concurrent, timeless motion—in the embrace of the Spirit." This is the life Jesus is praying for in and among us, a life of intimate union with God and with one another. Why would we settle for anything less? It is by seeing and tasting this life within and among us that people will believe. As we dance with God, and dance with each other, the world around us will be drawn into this intimate, beautiful mystery.
Closing Prayer: Enable me today, O God, to join the Divine Dance of the Trinity. Amen.
