Nothing More Beautiful: Jesus Christ -- Revelation of the Trinity, this Saturday!

June 3, 2010
The fifth and final encounter of the second year of Nothing More Beautiful airs this Saturday.
NMB205The theme of this episode is Jesus Christ: Revelation of the Trinity.
The catechesis talk is given by Cardinal Marc Ouellet, the Archbishop of Quebec and Primate of Canada, while the Supreme Knight of the Knights of Columbus Carl Anderson provides the witness talk.
Cardinal Ouellet’s very rich text uses the beauty of the Cathedral as a guide to discover the beauty of God in Jesus Christ.  He incorporated the portico, the windows, the nave and the tabernacle into his catechesis on the Trinity.  While speaking about the tabernacle, he said:
The Son’s mission was to reveal the Love of the merciful Father and to reconcile the world with him: Christ is the propitiation for the sins of the world. Only a divine Son could take on the sin of the world, expiate it and satisfy all the demands of the love of the New Covenant. The divine Spirit attests to this by raising Christ from the dead, thereby confirming his divine identity and his status as the High Priest and sole Mediator of the New Covenant.
In his talk, Carl Anderson points to Mark’s account of Jesus’ baptism in the Jordan as a revelation of the Trinity:
“This is my beloved Son, with whom I am well pleased.” It is the first time in the Gospel of Mark where Christ is proclaimed. And he is proclaimed by the Father’s love.
So one of the first things we know about Christ is that he is loved by a father, that he comes from this father, and that the father takes joy in him. And the Holy Spirit is there, too, the culminating bond of love.
In this moment, Christ reveals the life of the Trinity: Love, unity, joy.
Catch the broadcast of the final episode for the second year of Nothing More Beautiful on Saturday, June 5th at 9:00pm ET or Tuesday, June 8th at 8:30pm ET.
You can find the text from these talks, and other Nothing More Beautiful resources on the Archdiocese of Edmonton’s website HERE.  The Archdiocese of Edmonton will continue their Nothing More Beautiful series in the fall.  Watch for the third year, focusing on the overall theme of the Beauty of Life in Communion, in late October 2010!
