The Most Holy Trinity (Year A) 10/11 June 2017

Fr Frank writes:


My Dear Friends,


Today we celebrate the Feast of the Most Holy Trinity. It is appropriately celebrated after the wonders of Easter, Ascension and Pentecost. Each of these feasts highlights the work of God as we focus in turn on Father, Son and Holy Spirit – three persons, one God. It is hard for us to understand this Trinity of Persons bound together in perfect love. Maybe rather than trying to understand we should just rejoice that God reveals himself in this way as each day we pray: ‘In the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit’.

Wasn’t last weekend wonderful? The Confirmation of so many of our young people provided such a joyful way to celebrate Pentecost. Please continue to pray for Rebecca Dunbar (confirmed at the Vigil Mass in Frinton – it was so good to see Fr Arthur Barrow on that occasion) and Christopher Bartholomew, Patrick Bartholomew, Luca Kulacz, Neroli Kulacz, Holly Leach, Maisie Leach, Cameron Wallace, and Miles Wallace (confirmed at a particularly uplifting 10.45am Mass in Dovercourt). Please keep these young people in your daily prayers.

May the triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit bless you today and always.

Five year old Angela was excited to tell her teacher about her new baby brother:

Angela: He’s called Euan, Miss, he’s named after the Holy Spirit.

Teacher: I don’t think the Holy Spirit is called Euan, Angela.

Angela: He definitely is Miss; our Parish Priest says it every week….”….who lives and reigns with you an’ the Holy Spirit”
