The Most Holy Trinity

Today is the Feast of the Most Holy Trinity.  How can one use any words to describe this mystery.  The icon above is considered the pre-eminent icon in the Eastern Church written by Rublev to depict the Holy Trinity.  It is based on the visit of the three angels to Abraham. You can read more about it here (which ends with a short meditation by Henri Nouwen).

And here is the poem I chose for this Sunday:


Must we use words for everything?
Can there not be
A silent, flaming leap of heart
Toward Thee?

Elizabeth Rooney
