When most of us were tiny children we were taught how to make the sign of the Cross. With our right hand we touch our forehead, our breast and our shoulders. As we do this we say “In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit”. Symbolically we open our minds (our forehead); we open our hearts (our breast); and we open all our strength (our shoulders) to the wonder of our God – Father Son and Sprit.
Today is the Feast of the Trinity. It is the feast of the Sign of the Cross – Father, Son and Sprit Three persons but one God – One God who is signified in the sign we make every time we pray so that God will enlighten our minds, open our hearts and strengthen us so that we can live good lives and bring dignity to the lives of other people.
