TRINITY SUNDAY Lectionary #165

We celebrate the mystery of God as Trinity, not in splendid self-isolation but as for us. In the opening prayer for today’s Mass, we give thanks to the Father, who by sending into the world “the Word of truth and the Spirit of sanctification made known to the human race” the “wondrous mystery” of divine life: “the Trinity of eternal glory.”
