Trinity Sunday (Latin OF)

This Sunday is the great feast of the Trinity: the Octave Day of Pentecost. On this day we celebrate God's inner life - the vision of which is the goal of our human existence and for which "the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us" and "the Holy Spirit has been given to us."
