Trinity Sunday
From Christian Clay Columba Campbell:
Dixit Jesus discipulis suis: Data est mihi omnis potestas in cælo, et in terra: Euntes ergo docete omnes gentes, baptizantes eos in nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti: docentes eos servare omnia quæcumque mandavi vobis. Et ecce ego vobiscum sum omnibus diebus, usque ad consummationem sæculi.
The last verse of Matthew is how we Catholics see the church: Christ still speaks infallibly among us, strengthening and consoling us with his infinite love on our journey. He ascended into heaven but sent the Holy Spirit (commemorated this past week), part of the holy orthodox paradox that God is one and three.

Bet you an IHOP coupon that one of two or three hymns at Mass will be the Lorica of St Patrick.
