|The Trinity by Gregory Radionov|
A modern take on the Rublev Icon ?
Scripture readings for Sunday's Mass are here.
My reflections and attempts to get a grip on the Holy Trinity from previous years are below.
Another 2010 post from Trinity Sunday 2010 : A Preacher's Nightmare.
and another one from 2011 : "This Holy Trinity Thingymabob."
and a 2012 post here titled "More Tinkering With The Holy Trinity Mystery."
This 2012 post features Bruce Cockburn's beautiful song, "Child Of The Wind." and a link to a lovely poem by Joann Nelander, titled "My Holy Three."
Jürgen Moltmann, a prominent theological writer of the twenty first century writes on Rublev’s work:
“Through their tenderly intimate inclination towards one another, the three persons show the profound unity joining them, in which they are one.
The chalice on the table points to the surrender of the Son on Golgotha.
Just as the chalice stands at the centre of the table round which the three Persons are sitting, so the cross of the Son stands from eternity into the centre of the Trinity.”
