Tibi laus, tibi gloria, tibi gratiarum actio in saecula sempiterna . . .

Now that we have commemorated the mysteries of our salvation, that is from the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem to the descent of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost, the liturgy asks us to consider the central mystery of God's own interior life.

The Blessed Trinity is the central mystery of our faith and is therefore constantly evoked in the prayer of the Church.

Each of us was baptised in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit and we are likewise absolved of our sins in the name of the Blessed Trinity. We begin and finish our prayers by invoking the Father, through the Son, in the unity of the Holy Spirit.

Today and every day we can pray,

'Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit . . .'
