Trinity sunday

This is such a weird Sunday for me. I really mean no offense, but so few people seem to realize how much our freedom and salvation are wrapped up in the Mystery of the Trinity. But to speak such language on this day seems blasphemous to our American religion.

Anyway, I like this quote from Thomas Merton:
We enter into the Mystery of the Holy Trinity not so much by thinking and imagining, as by loving. Thought and imagination soon reach the limits beyond which they cannot pass, and these limits still fall infinitely short of the reality of God. But love, overstepping all bounds and flying beyond limitations with the wings of God's own Spirit, penetrates into the very depths of the mystery and apprehends Him Whom our intelligence is unable to see.
