Trinity Sunday: A new start

Holy Trinity Dockhead in London’s Bermondsey

This weekend we reach Trinity Sunday.

The Trinity is the name for God: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. three in one and one in three.

Since the end of November we have lived through the birth, death, resurrection and ascension of Jesus.

Trinity Sunday is the beginning of the second half of the year when we not only continue growing into the faith we have proclaimed but look to spreading the teaching.

The liturgical colour from Monday is green for growth and it’s the colour that, except for high days, will be with us until we start the Advent again at the end of the year.

The first high day is Thursday, Corpus Christi, when we give thanks for the gift of Holy Communion which will sustain us during the rest of the year.

Both feasts began in Liege and both were made universal by Pope John XXII.
