This is embarrassing to admit, but until I read it at Morning Prayer today I’d not noticed the revelation of the Trinity lurking in Isaiah 9:6,
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called
Wonderful Counselor I will pray to the Father, and he will give you another Counselor, that he may be with you forever… John 14:16
Mighty God For the LORD your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, and the awesome God… Deuteronomy 10:17,
Everlasting Father Pray then like this:“Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name…” Matthew 6:9,
Prince of Peace But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near through the blood of Christ. For he himself is our peace… Ephesians 2:13-14
The reconciling of our human life to the eternal, creative love that is one God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, was foretold by the Prophets, born of the Virgin Mary, won on the Cross, first harvested at Jesus’ Resurrection and Ascension, given to us to proclaim at Pentecost, and awaiting each of us in our death and all of us in the return of the Prince of Peace.
