Opening the Scriptures at Home

The global Catholic Church is reflecting on the same readings from the Bible for the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity. We remain spiritually connected to one another as we open our hearts to the Word of God. 


1. Encounter the Word of God

Read or listen to the Biblical readings for the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity.

(Note: Sometimes the USCCB website cannot accommodate the high volume of traffic. If you cannot access the readings, visit the website at another time).


2. Reflect on the Word of God

Silently reflect, write down or share your insights about the readings.

You may also desire to watch a video reflection on the Biblical readings from the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.


3. Pray

Introduce The Lord's Prayer in these or similar words: Gathering our prayers into one, we now pray in the words that Jesus gave us...
