Menu Plan: Week of Trinity Sunday


Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, one God; Oh come, let us adore Him.

I love Trinity Sunday! It is not as big a feast day as the Paschal feast or Pentecost or the Nativity, but I love it. It is a theological feast. It celebrates what we believe. Although, I "read" eastern, and our family tends toward the east, I love this primarily western feast. In the east, it is celebrated along with Pentecost, which means that, actually, we are celebrating it with the east today. However, it is a principal feast in the west. Prior to the Great Schism, it was a secondary feast and relatively minor observance. It came about around the time of the Arian heresy, which was repudiated by the Nicene and Constantinople Councils in the Nicene Creed. Around this time, there were prefaces and prayers written and proclaimed in churches on Sundays which emphasized orthodox Christian faith, and those for the Holy Trinity were said the Sunday after Pentecost in some areas, in other areas, it was the Sunday before Advent. It was emphasized to counter the erroneous teachings of the day, and was elevated to primary first class status in 1911, again to counter heretical teaching. In the east, while it is not primary, in the same way, it is the first of the three day observance of Pentecost, and is also called Trinity Sunday. We rejoice in the Trinity and love them. God is unity (one God) and community (three Persons) and has created all people to be in one in community.
