ENTRANCE ANTIPHON
Blest be God the Father, and the Only Begotten Son of God, and also the Holy Spirit, for he has shown us his merciful love.
PENITENTIAL RITE
Today we celebrate the feast of the Holy Trinity. We both begin and conclude our prayers in the name of the Trinity consisting of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. In the Old Testament times the people believed in the oneness of God who is sovereign and omnipotent. With the birth of Jesus the understanding changed because Jesus is the Son God. Jesus always spoke of the Spirit whom he would send after his death and glorification. With the outpouring of the Spirit on Pentecost, the Holy Trinity is complete. The Father, the son and the Holy Spirit form one Godhead. Multi-tasking is the order of the day. Each one of us has to be a loving and caring parent, a disciplined educator, a discerning friend, and a hospitable neighbour. The persons of the Trinity do their own functions and remain united thereby presenting themselves as an example for us to follow? What role does the Holy Trinity play in our lives? (Pause)
I confess to almighty God/and to you,/my brothers and sisters,/that I have greatly sinned,/in my thoughts and in my words,/in what I have done and in what I have failed to do,/through my fault,/through my fault,/through my most grievous fault;/therefore I ask blessed Mary ever-Virgin,/all the Angels and Saints,/and you,/my brothers and sisters,/to pray for me to the Lord our God.
 
Glory to God in the highest...
COLLECT
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, one God, for ever and ever.
FIRST READING
(Wisdom personified as a lady proclaims aloud that she herself is created, in fact, she is the first to be created. Nothing is outside the purview of the Creator God).
A reading from the Book of Proverbs (8:22-31)
The Wisdom of God cries aloud, the Lord created me at the beginning of his work, the first of his acts of old. Ages ago I was set up, at the first, before the beginning of the earth. When there were no depths I was brought forth, when there were no springs abounding with water. Before the mountains had been shaped, before the hills, I was brought forth; before he had made the earth with its fields, or the first of the dust of the world. When he established the heavens, I was there, when he drew a circle on the face of the deep, when he made firm the skies above, when he established the fountains of the deep, when he assigned to the sea its limit, so that the waters might not transgress his command, when he marked out the foundations of the earth,
