God Encompassing God

PREAMBLE of the 1987 Constitution -

"We, the sovereign Filipino people,
imploring the aid of Almighty God,
in order to build a just and humane society,
and establish a Government
that shall embody our ideals and aspirations,
promote the common good,
conserve and develop our patrimony,
and secure to ourselves and our posterity,
the blessings of independence and democracy
- under the rule of law -
and a regime of truth, justice, freedom, love, equality, and peace,
do ordain and promulgate this Constitution."

- selah -

God encompassing God,
God encompassing All in Thyself!

Father, Son, and Holy Spirit -
Blessed Unity,
Holy Trinity,
Perfect Company!

there is none but Thee,
there is none like Thee!

Thou art from everlasting to everlasting -
in Thee All draw their being,
in Thee All draw their living life,
in Thee there is no shadow of turning,
in Thee there is neither darkness nor Night,
in Thee there is joy, abundance and peace,
in Thee there is only love and the Light!

Thou desire salvation for all beings
to Whom shall all needful souls turn to,
my God, but to Thee?

Thou art the one Sovereign of all nations
unto Whom shall Thy exile peoples return to,
my God, but unto Thee?

Abide in us, O LORD, be with us!
Be the God of our lives, our families,
and our national communities!

O Goal of all my goals,
I love, I trust, and I adore Thee!

For God is a God of relationships;
the singular Source of all true belonging -
seen and unseen, all of Sacred Life come together in Him.
He is the LORD, He Who is, and there is none but Him;
the one Sovereign of all the nations of the children of Mankind.

We enter into the mystery of the Divine Unity to be alone with the Alone.
We enter into the mystery of the Holy Trinity to be intimate with the Intimate.

And we who are called to be witnesses of the Redeeming Love of Christ 
are called to be alone with the Alone AND intimate with the Intimate.

Let us reflect on the number 1 as the number for perfection: with the Father, Son, and Spirit as the perfect unity of order, purpose and relation - the God Who is, the LORD Who Loves us all - one God, in Persons three. Happy Holy Trinity Sunday 2013.
