Three Persons in One God. Most of us learned to make the Sign of the Cross at a very early age. It is a simple but direct statement of belief in the Trinity. On this Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity, take a few moments to simply and thoughtfully pray: In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of Holy Spirit. Amen.

Faith Facts - Did You Know ?? Trinity Sunday On a beautiful Saturday in May, I sat at a table in the park, reading term papers and enjoying the sights and sounds of spring. My favorite sound is that of little children laughing and squealing as mom and dad play games with them, or throw a ball or sit and eat a picnic lunch. It’s the perfect image of family. Love is in the air, infusing the mind and spirit with a sense of peace and joy. There is something about a toddler’s laugh that makes you smile with hope and happiness. Angels and perhaps theologians can best explain the mystery of the Trinity, but we all experience the power of God. In every breath, we acknowledge the creative power of the Father; in every good deed, we see the redeeming glory of the Son; in every prayer, we are inspired by the sanctifying Spirit. Faith is an intimate relationship with God and He gives us all that we need to become His people, His ministers, and His church. The Church describes the family as a domestic church. In it, we learn the ways of God, the story of salvation, and the virtues of faith, hope and love. We do not learn our lessons from a book, but from each other; not just form words, but from deeds; not just from explanations, but from example. Like a spring day, faith can infuse us with love and hope so that we grow together, strong and faithful.

T RINITY S UNDAY H ISTORY Trinity Sunday honors the Holy Trinity and serves as a reminder for all it has done to salvage humanity from its sins. The Holy Trinity is the Christian belief that God consists of three distinct persons - the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Theologically, the Trinity is a common thread amongst most Christian faiths. Trinity Sunday falls on the Sunday following Pentecost.
