Rector's Weekly Message

Trinity Sunday, the first Sunday after Pentecost, is an opportunity to appreciate the amazing revelation of God poured out for the world and celebrated through the six liturgical seasons of the first half of the year: the hope of the prophets proclaimed in Advent, the incarnate Christmas joy of all nations delivered by Mary in the manger in Bethlehem, his revelation to gentiles and Israel through the season of Epiphany, Lent's six week preparation for baptismal renewal culminating in the special liturgies of Holy Week by which we reenact and participate in those mighty acts by which our Lord fought and won eternal life for us, fifty days of Easter peace and joy- first fruits of the resurrection - Alleluia, Alleluia- delivered through the cross and empty tomb in preparation for the Pentecostal renewal of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling and indissoluble presence the Church and all her members is made: A new creation in perfect peace commissioned to be Christ's Body and do his work, spread the Word, make disciples of all nations in the Name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.  By all of which we take confidence, in every circumstance, that with such power behind us and with us and in us  there is nothing that can ever separate us from the love of the One Triune God, our Parent, Savior, and Companion.
