The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity: Entering into Communion

The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity: Entering into Communion

This Eucharistic Meditation is designed to help you spend thirty minutes to an hour in meditation and silent prayer with Jesus during Eucharistic adoration. Even if you cannot be physically present in a church or adoration chapel with the Blessed Sacrament, you can unite yourself spiritually to the Eucharist as you spend this time in prayer.

THE GRACE I SEEK: to truly listen to the voice of the Lord so that I can more fully participate in the life of the Holy Trinity


Pause for a few moments, and allow yourself to become aware of Jesus’ gift of himself in the Eucharist. Realize that, at this very moment, the Lord of Life is gazing upon you with great love. Allow yourself to receive his loving gaze. You are his beloved child. Rest in his loving gaze.

Thank Jesus for the gift of himself in the Eucharist.

ASK FOR THE GRACE: Jesus, help me to listen to you speaking to me through the Eucharist so that I can be completely united to the life of the Trinity.


Read slowly, 3–4 times. Allow the words of Scripture to wash over your mind and heart. Allow the Holy Spirit to speak to you through this passage.

“Did anything so great ever happen before? Was it ever heard of? Did a people ever hear the voice of God speaking from the midst of fire, as you did, and live?” (Deuteronomy 4:32–33)


Allow yourself to sit with these questions for a while, being attentive to how the Lord is speaking in your heart.

How is the Lord calling me to enkindle a spirit of gratitude in my heart for every way that he speaks to me, especially when I am before him in the Blessed Sacrament and guided in prayer by his Holy Spirit? How might he be calling me to respond to his Word today in my life as a member of the Church?


Read slowly, 3–4 times. Allow these words to wash over your mind and heart. Let the Holy Spirit speak to you through this meditation.

“Then Jesus approached them and said to them, ‘All power in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.’” (Matthew 28:18–20)


Jesus, through the power of his Holy Spirit, is always offering us the grace to be transformed by his love, to know our identity given to us in Baptism as a beloved child of God, and to participate in the mission of preaching the Gospel. How can you dedicate more time each day to growing in your relationship with the Blessed Trinity—Father, Son, and Holy Spirit—and be less distracted by passing things? How can you share the gift of your faith in him with those whom you encounter today with conviction and clarity?

Remain in silence with the Lord. Allow him to speak in the silence, in your heart. Receive his presence. If it helps, write down what you sense the Lord communicating to you during this time of prayer.


God our Father, who by sending into the world the Word of truth and the Spirit of sanctification made known to the human race your wondrous mystery, grant us, we pray, that in professing the true faith, we may acknowledge the Trinity of eternal glory and adore your Unity, powerful in majesty. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, God, forever and ever. Amen. (Collect, Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity)


At every Mass, Jesus offers himself to the Father for us. We can always join our own offerings with Jesus at Mass. This Sunday, offer your desire to be united through Jesus to the life of the Trinity.


During the coming week, take a moment to give thanks for the gift of the communion we can have with Christ through the Church. As you give thanks, do one concrete gesture of service for someone in your parish family to help foster unity in the Body of Christ.
