The Sunday of the Most Holy Trinity

That would be today…Trinity Sunday. Denied by many, the Trinity remains a beautiful paradox of Christian faith. Today is the day we especially immerse ourselves in the mystery of God!

Here is an excerpt from the Letter of Athanasius to Serapion, the reading for today in the Liturgy of the Hour’s Office of Readings:

We acknowledge the Trinity, holy and perfect, to consist of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. In this Trinity there is no intrusion of any alien element or of anything from outside, nor is the Trinity a blend of creative and created being. It is a wholly creative and energizing reality, self-consistent and undivided in its active power, for the Father makes all things through the Word and in the Holy Spirit, and in this way the unity of the holy Trinity is preserved. Accordingly, in the Church, one God is preached, one God who is above all things and through all things and in all things. God is above all things as Father, for he is principle and source; he is through all things through the Word; and he is in all things in the Holy Spirit.
