Trinity Sunday

Today is the feast that we celebrate the Blessed Trinity.

At Mass, we'd sing "O! most holy Trinity! Undivided Unity! Holy God. Mighty God. God immortal, be adored."

The Trinity is a mystery peculiar to our Faith. What other religion celebrates the mystery of a Triune Deity? What other Faith honours God as three distinct Persons having one distinct Nature?

Many people cannot understand the concept. They can accept the idea of the Big Bang, that the whole world magically came to be through a giant explosion. (Persnally, I thought explosion destroyed, not created.) They can accept evolution. I have a hard time visualizing that somehow, an inanimate bit of sludge gradually became intelligent and over billions of years formed intelligent homo sapiens. Then again, if we took so many years to evolve into what we are now, why have we stopped evolving? As far as I know, Man has been pretty much static for at LEAST four thousand (probably more likesix thousand) years.

If you look in the world around you, so many things mirror groups of three. There are three stages of matter; solid, liquid, and gas. There is father, mother, and children in a family. There is past, present, and future. There are three leaves on a shamrock. There are three stages of life; child, adult, old age. So many things mirror the Triune God. It is amazing.

God bless you all, this holy day, in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.

See my comment box? Want to know a secret?

*whispers* It's actually a TARDIS comment box! If you write long enough, you'll see... it's bigger on the inside!

Isn't that cool?

Now that you know that, aren't you going to throw a comment in there? You KNOW you want to. :)
