Show Notes
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: the Father, the Son, and the 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.

The feast day of the Blessed Trinity is a summary of all the feast days we have had since Christmas up to and including Lent, Easter and the Pentecost. In some ways it is all summarised in the feast day of the Blessed Trinity. Fr Micháel takes us through a wonderful reflection on the meaning of our relationship with the Trinity and how we are welcomed into the love of the Trinity which is open to each one of us. Each of us are called into their family; not forced but invited in with an extraordinary freedom to say no but also to be able to say yes joyfully.
