Though the persons of the Trinity never act alone, their separateness does suggest modes in the life of grace that honor each person of the Trinity in a special manner. Advent to Epiphany stirs within us a longing for God as Creator and Father to intervene in an unjust and sinful world. God does this: Jesus, Messiah and Son of God is born. The season of Lent and Easter focuses upon the saving acts of Jesus in his life, death, and resurrection.
This third season is dedicated to the Holy Spirit, taking its name from the festival linked to the Spirit—Pentecost.
The church in the west has been celebrating Trinity Sunday on the Sunday after Pentecost since 1334. We gather the movement of God over the previous seasons, into a single contemplation of the wholeness of God. You
do the same today.
What are these?
On the mountain with Jesus v. 16
