In Search of God

O Lord, help me to know you.

For a long time, I have been captured by the humanity of Jesus. More than fifty years ago, while reading “Theology for Beginners” by the late Frank Sheed, I realized with a rush of joy that Jesus had a human mind, a human body and a human soul.

I had believed that his divinity was his “soul” and that, of course, completely dehumanized him.

Freed from that misunderstanding, I began to realize just how much love is encased in the Incarnation of our Lord.

Jesus, Son of God and Son of Mary, had to do what we all do—eat, sleep, perspire, grow tired, laugh, suffer misunderstanding, revel in friendship and weep.

Now, in my later years, I am revisiting his divinity.

I am Henry Libersat—that identifies me. But Jesus is more than Jesus of Nazareth. He is, as I have said, the Son of God. Ascended into heaven, he maintains his humanity—but his Person is the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity.

I wasted a lot of time trying to understand (solve?) the Mystery of the Holy Trinity. It is not a mystery to be understood as we might understand worldly puzzles—it is to be celebrated with the conviction of faith.

It’s the Mystery of the Holy Trinity—one God in Three Divine Persons, Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
