Holy Gospel of Jesus Christ according to Saint John 3:16-18.

God so loved the world that he gave his only-begotten Son,
so that everyone who believes in him might not
perish but might have eternal life.
For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world,
but that the world might be saved through him.
Whoever believes in him will not be condemned,
but whoever does not believe has already been condemned, because he has not believed in
the name of the only Son of God.

The Most Holy Trinity – Solemnity – Year A

Catholicism

Trinity Sunday

TRINITY th

Trinity Sunday is the first Sunday after Pentecost in the Western Christian liturgical calendar, and the Sunday of Pentecost in Eastern Christianity.[citation needed] Trinity Sunday celebrates the Christian doctrine of the Trinity, the three Persons of God: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

In the Catholic Church it is officially known as the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity. Prior to the reforms of the Second Vatican Council, it marked the end of a three-week period when church weddings were forbidden. The period began on Rogation Sunday, the fifth Sunday after Easter. Trinity Sunday was established as a Double of the Second Class by Pope John XXII to celebrate the Trinity.[7] It was raised to the dignity of a Double of the First Class by Pope Pius X on 24 July 1911. During the Middle Ages, especially during the Carolingian period, devotion to the Blessed Trinity was a highly important feature of private devotion and inspired several liturgical expressions.[5] The currently prescribed liturgical color is white.

In the traditional Divine Office, the Athanasian Creed (Quicumque vult) is said on this day at Prime. Before 1960, it was said on all Sundays after Epiphany and Pentecost which do not fall within Octaves or on which a feast of Double rank or higher was celebrated or commemorated, as well as on Trinity Sunday. The 1960 reforms reduced it to once a year, on this Sunday.

In the 1962 Missal, the Mass for the First Sunday After Pentecost is not said or commemorated on Sunday (it is permanently impeded there by Trinity Sunday), but is used during the week if the ferial Mass is being said.

The Thursday after Trinity Sunday is observed as the Feast of Corpus Christi. In some countries, including the United States, Canada, and Spain, it may be celebrated on the following Sunday, when parishioners are more likely to attend Mass and be able to celebrate the feast.

Commentary of the day

St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross, OCD

Saint Teresa Benedicta of the Cross [Edith Stein] (1891-1942),
Carmelite, martyr, co-patron of Europe

Poem « I will remain with you »,
1938 (trans. ©Washington Province of Discalced Carmelites, 1992)

« Then the angel showed me the river of Life…
flowing from the throne of God and of the Lamb » (Rv 22,1)

You reign at the Father’s right hand (Ps 109 (110),1)
In the kingdom of his eternal glory
As God’s Word from the beginning. (Jn 1,1)

You reign on the Almighty’s throne
Also in transfigured human form,
Ever since the completion of your work on earth (Jn 17,4; 19,30).
I believe this because your word teaches me so,
And because I believe, I know it gives me joy,
And blessed hope blooms forth from it.

For where you are, there also are your own, (Jn 17,24)
Heaven is my glorious homeland,
I share with you the Father’s throne. (Ap 3,21)

The Eternal who made all creatures,
Who, thrice holy, encompasses all being,
In addition has a silent, special kingdom of his own.

The innermost chamber of the human soul
Is the Trinity’s favorite place to be,
His heavenly throne on earth.

To deliver this heavenly kingdom from the hand of the enemy,
The Son of God has come as Son of Man,
He gave his blood as the price of deliverance.
In the heart of Jesus, which was pierced, (Jn 19,34)
The kingdom of heaven and the land of earth are bound together.
Here is for us the source of life. (Jn 7,38)

This heart is the heart of the triune Divinity,
And the center of all human hearts
That bestows on us the life of God.

It draws us to itself with secret power, (Jn 12,32)
It conceals us in itself in the Father’s bosom
And floods us with the Holy Spirit.
