Solemnity of the Holy Trinity

On the Solemnity of the Holy Trinity we celebrate the very heart of our faith. At the time of God's definitive intervention in the world for the salvation of all; the angel Gabriel proclaims the Most Holy Trinity to the Blessed Mother, "And the angel said to her, "The Holy Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you; therefore the child to be born will be called holy, the Son of God (Luke 1:35)."

 As baptized Catholic we are children of God and  this brings us into communion with the Triune God as family. Dr. Scott Hahn explains, "Last Sunday, we celebrated the sending of the Spirit, which sealed God’s new covenant and made a new creation. 

In this new creation, we live in the family of God, who has revealed himself as a Trinity of love. We share in His divine nature through His body and blood (see 2 Peter 1:4). This is the meaning of the three feasts that cap the Easter season - Pentecost, Trinity Sunday, and Corpus Christi.(read more)"

God Bless and enjoy your day!
