THEME: THE TRINITARIAN NATURE OF CHRISTIAN HEALING
Celebrant: His Grace Archbishop William Goh
We all seek healing. People seek healing from different sources. Christians and monotheists seek healing from God. However, this God whom we know through Jesus Christ in the Holy Spirit is essentially Trinitarian in nature. This one God has been revealed to us as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. If the one God who is our Father has created us through Christ Jesus, the mediator of all creation and the first born from the dead in the Holy Spirit, similarly, the restoration of a fallen humanity is necessarily accomplished by the Father’s love and mercy manifested through His Son, Christ Jesus in the power of the Holy Spirit. The healing process of an individual therefore traverses in a Trinitarian manner. Full healing entails recognition of one’s identity as a child of the Father mediated through Christ who reveals to us our true identity and the Father’s love. By His death, He brings about the forgiveness of sins and our reconciliation with God. This same love is poured out afresh in us in the Holy Spirit, healing us body, mind and spirit, restoring our true identity as God’s children through the Sacrament of Baptism.
