Fr. Farrell leads the listener into the heart of the Trinity. He invites us to climb onto the lap of the Father and be enveloped by a divine silence so deep that we can hear the big bang of the creation of the material universe in the past and the heavenly music of paradise in the present. He invites us to truly become a child of God and a sibling of Christ. Out of the silence of the Father we hear the Word of the Son and are filled with the Spirit that gives us the energy for our mission. Fr. Farrell reveals to the listener how with every breath, we are sustained by the Spirit of God and with every heartbeat we give witness to God’s love for us. Out of this awesome encounter comes our own unique song of praising God and our own urgent call to be heroes for the kingdom. The radical disciple of Jesus gives all in the service of others and works for the suffering, the homeless, the oppressed and the afflicted. By not running away from our own goodness and seeing the truth of our own power in God we can do marvels beyond our imagination. Prayer groups, parishes, dioceses, and the Church itself needs to become more and more the body of Christ so that the kingdom of God may be more apparent to a world that is adrift and aimless in its materialism.
