Holy Trinity


Yesterday was Trinity Sunday and I celebrated the Feast by grilling burgers. The meat came from a deer that a friend had shot, and right tasty it was too.

I like to think that my exposition of the Trinitarian mystery is faithful to Augustine and Aquinas, but I won't pretend any theological expertise. If you want something brainy on the subject, see here. In the meanwhile, I'll leave you with the Collect, and not the rubbish "contemporary" language one, either.



ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, who hast given unto us thy servants grace, by the confession of a true faith, to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity, and in the power of thy Divine Majesty to worship the Unity: We beseech thee, that thou wouldst keep us steadfast in this faith, and evermore defend us from all adversities, who livest and reignest, one God, world without end. Amen.

God bless,

LSP

It was quite a grill-out, Jenny!

Just the look of the smoke from the grill makes me hungry for a good steak. We don't have a grill, but I'm working on fixing that.

I like Weber's -- but that's just me.
