All glory to the Three in One!

Holy, Holy, Holy Lord God Almighty!
Early in the morning our song shall rise to Thee:
Holy, Holy, Holy! merciful and mighty!
God in Three Persons, blessed Trinity.

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 Eucharistic gift assumes even more awesome proportions when we reflect that the Son of God present herein is ever united, intimately and indivisibly, with His co-Persons in the Trinity – His Eternal Father and their mutual Spirit of Love; which means that they, too are mysteriously yet really with Him, and consequently with us no less. 

In effect, then, the total Eucharistic mystery includes the presence of both the Father and the Holy Spirit as an inseparable concomitant.  That is, the Blessed Sacrament embraces the Trinitarian mystery within its compass.”

Fr Richard Foley, S.J.
Mary and the Eucharist

"In the communion of grace with the Trinity, man's 'living area' is broadened
and raised up to the supernatural level of divine life." - St John Paul II

Both Excellent!  


"Best wishes, best wishes to you on your day!
I ask for you the grace to be ever closer to your children,
allow them to grow, but be close, close!
They need you, your presence, your closeness, your love....
As Joseph was for Jesus, [be] the example
and the teacher of the wisdom
that is nourished by the Word of God."

Pope Francis, Father's Day Message 2014
