The complete truth is The Holy Trinity; The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. He is not three but one. He is the only one God. This is the mystery of our God. It is impossible to understand it with our brain or intellect only. But it is possible if we are opened to the Holy Spirit. He is the one who can teach, guide and bring us to the unity of the Holy Trinity. There, there is no doubt, unfairness and wickedness. There we will be perfect, holy and eternal. Praise the Holy Trinity; the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Trinity Sunday is a day of celebration. It is a day of gifts which bring us closer to our origin, our salvation and our life together in community for others. We wish all our parishioners a very happy Holy Trinity Feast Day.

This year Pope Francis reminds us to be inspired by the Gospel of Mercy. Migrants and Refugees challenge us to ensure that God’s love is felt by every individual, and to welcome them “home”.
