The Feast of the Holy Trinity

This weekend the Church celebrates the Feast of the Holy Trinity. We worship one God in Three Persons. The Feast is a lesson in unity and love. The Father, Son, and Holy Spirit give themselves completely to one another, and literally have one mind, one will, one power.

As human beings, there are limits to how close we can come to others. But we can come far closer than we are.

Nothing divides human beings from one another more drastically than abortion. It cuts and destroys the most intimate union, that of a mother and her unborn child. The effects of abortion split marriages, families, political bodies, and nations.

As we prepare to celebrate Trinity Sunday, let’s renew our commitment to building unity, starting with the bond between mother and child.
