  Trinity Sunday
At the Homily today, I wondered just what exactly we can think about the Most Holy and Undivided Unity we Catholics call the Holy Trinity. Growing up in the English Church with such great homilists as Knox, Faber and a little known Benedictine Fr Sauvignon Louismet all of whom were recognized and honored for the theologians they were. Fr Louismet had the imprimatur of Canon Edm. Surmount. He had to be good, look at whom he had to read from Chesterton through the great English Catholic writers of his time.
Fr. Louismet gave a very good descriptive account in his mystical description of the Trinity. He described the Iconic Beauty of our Three in One in a very unique and forceful manner. He saw God when inwardly looking at Himself Himself may just be a very inaccurate way or personal pronoun to describe God. The Catechism, with which I was brought up in the faith. He is described in the chapter on the first article of the Apostle's Creed, as a supreme Spirit, who alone exists of Himself and is infinite in all perfections. returning to "Himself" I do find it a very in accurate pronoun to use for God after all in this case God has no body and the inadequacy of out human languages cannot conceive of a word that is sufficient. Of course we see the word "Perfections" another inadequate way to describe the "Attributes" of God.
Fr. Louismet uses the Beatific Vision to enter into an account of God's Three in One and how it gives us an understanding of what might be the Trinity. As God contemplated Himself, He saw as in a perfect mirror, Himself. That mirror image He loved so much was to Him another Himself, His Son and the love that rushed between what He saw and what looked back at Him was the Holy Ghost so called because it had no body. It was and is and will always be  a perfect image of Himself which He destined to offer to Himself for us. To this end He placed this entity into a woman to become the God made man for us.
Why have I gone this way and written as such. Let me say this, as the priest was preaching I went off into a reverie, a contemplation of the Three in One and saw it this way. In the thought, the conception of , the idea of Himself in God's mind there was no body but a thought of what could be a perfect imitation of the reflected vision of God. inseparable perhaps through God's perfection from Him. When we unite this with the need to come, a sacrifice of something dear to Himself, to show what was to come the importance of what was to come to Him in a way intelligible to who were to be. The cost of His Love, more properly the Charity that urged God's contemplation to produce His Son or our Soul to exist. so the Holy Ghost became the Holy Spirit in the creature formed and conceived in God's mind. The first real indication during the Age of the Messiah leading to the present age the Age of the Holy Spirit.
May I remind you that the Holy Spirit was to the Hebrews of the Old Law just that, a holy miasma that gave gifts, the came as the breath of God, something not seen but existed from time to time. In some cases the work of man's hands that gave evidence of God's presence. Samuel for example filled with the Spirit slew 1000 Philistines with the Jawbone of an ass. A spirit of warfare would you say?

  The Feast of the Most Precious Blood
I give you glory and praise Lord Jesus Christ, Beloved Son of Mary and thank You for the most precious gift of Your Life’s Blood poured out upon the world to bring us to a life of everlasting grace. Amen  That is about right. I hope many of you believe it too.   As His Passion and death drew to a close, Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, with the help of a soldier forced out all upon the world that He had left in His Heart. Then with the words, “All is consummated”. He mixed with the clay on the mountain the mortar was formed. The mortar that sealed us to Him in His Church. I mean His Church, not the plaything of the Pharisees and Sadducees of the Church today. Fortunately, blessedly there are among the Sacerdotal Priesthood those Josephs of Arimathea, who struggle to treat the Mystical Body of Christ with all the devotion and respect they can, continuing as far as possible the real truths of Christ’s words.  So today I pray to ask that for each drop of the Precious Blood Christ gives incessantly for us will be used for the reason it was given. I ask for each drop to wash clean a poor soul in Purgatory for them to rise in glory in the presence of God Himself. I ask that the memory of the Blood and the example given by Christ will move the Members of the Church to true contrition and the mortar renewed in our Church’s foundations and the sand of the false teachings and opinions abounding in the Mystical Body today be blown away by the Wind of the Holy Spirit.  Today if it possible for any one they should read the Precious Blood by Fr Faber. It is a very good but long meditation on the Precious Blood by a Priest Mystic, whose hymns used to sung with such fervor (Faith of our Fathers) If there is any book written in our Church that will move you to make reparation and atonement for our spilling of the Most Holy Blood, this is the one.
