Santisima Trinidad by the Road
On the first Friday of January 2013, and coming home after a very long and fruitful day, I noticed a white taxicab with red markings of “SANTISIMA TRINIDAD” at her rear trunk area. A rare and refreshing sight indeed, to be reminded of a simple truth during the end of the first working week at the start of a new year: the Holy Trinity accompanies us as we toil for our daily bread. The Holy Trinity is the deepest mystery of the Christian faith, some even say, the most distant of all from human comprehension. And yet, the sight of the Triune name along Manila’s traffic reminds us of the loving divine presence in our daily lives. More than just a reminder, a promise to be with us everyday this 2013. I shall endure Manila’s everyday traffic knowing that around the corner could be another sign of the Trinity’s divine presence.
