Trinity Sunday

RublevToday is Trinity Sunday, when the Church celebrates the most Holy Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The Trinity is ultimately a mystery. This does not mean we can not begin to grasp it, or that it is simply confusing. I have heard mystery described like this (forgive me for not recalling who said this): Mystery is not a brick wall to run up against, but an ocean in which to dive. Such is the Trinity and all of the mysteries of the Church. Their meaning is not attached to our being able to fully explain them.

Also, Fr. Al Kimel has has posted an excellent Trinity quote by none other than my patron saint, and defender of Nicene Trinitarianism, St. Hilary of Poitiers. The image is Rublev’s famous icon of the Trinity. Happy Trinity Sunday!
