All Three in a great dynamic of love

“The Best ideal is the true and other truth is none.
All glory be ascribed to the holy Three in One.”
Gerard Manley Hopkins
Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity
"All three in a great dynamic of love,
are so close that they are One God." ~ Fr. John Foley, S. J.

Trinity Sunday, officially "The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity," is one of the few feasts of the Christian Year that celebrates a reality and doctrine rather than an event or person. On Trinity Sunday we remember and honor the eternal God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Trinity Sunday is celebrated the Sunday after Pentecost, and lasts only one day, which is symbolic of the unity of the Trinity. The Eastern Churches have no tradition of Trinity Sunday, arguing that they celebrate the Trinity every Sunday. Westerners do as well, although they set aside a special feast day for the purpose.

“The veil of mystery has been torn asunder.
He is there, my God, infinite Unity, adorable Trinity,
under the appearance of a small piece of bread."
Bl. Dina Belanger

All glory be to the Father
and to the Son
and to the Holy Spirit.
