Trinity Sunday: Eternal Mystery, Wondrous Reality

A quick note here (as I run off and do too many things on this Sabbath day): today is celebrated as Trinity Sunday in the Western Church: O Happy Day! It is a day in which we remember, celebrate, and are reminded that we worship a Triune God, One in three Persons, Blessed the hymn goes.

I am fixated on the above icon and what it means for pilgrimage. The three figures--undoubtedly Father, Son, and Holy Spirit--are gathered around the elements for the sacrament of Eucharist. This Eucharist is food for the journey, which continually nurtures us, no matter what. For us on pilgrimage, or aware that we are on a pilgrimage in our daily life, this day is a reminder that we worship a community who follows, walks with us, leads us, and sets before us the pathway, and is the pathway, that we trod upon.

Happy Day of Trinity Wonders!

Bien Camino,

Pilgrim peace,
