Trinity … more than just the sole being in the universe


This 15th century Russian icon is perhaps the most popular icon when speaking on the Trinity. Much can be said about the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit when meditating upon this icon. Let me say only two things:

  1.  They look on each other with intense love. It is such a holy love that our siblings in the Eastern Church say that the Trinity enters into a perfect dance of unity.
  2. The fourth corner of this table is at the forefront of our vision. We are invited to sit with God, to eat with him, and to dine with him. It is here where our life makes sense and where our lives are utterly free.

On this Trinity Sunday, we remember that we worship God who is a community of love. God who is love desires to give and share love because it is his very nature.
