1 and 1 and 1 is One

"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.

"O Trinity, eternal Trinity! Fire, abyss of love
was it necessary that you should give
 the Holy Trinity as food for souls?

You gave us not only your Word
through the Redemption and in the Eucharist,
but you also gave Yourself
in the fullness of love for Your creature."

St Catherine of Siena

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

Pope St John Paul II

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