Alleluia: Glory to God, True, Good and Beautiful

The Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity
June 12, 2022

Andrei Rublev’s Holy Trinity

Today, in God’s Lavish Mercy, we pray within the awesome Mystery of the Triune God.

Alleluia. Alleluia.
Glory to the Creator, to the Redeemer, to the Sanctifier,
our God Who is, Who was, and Who will always be.


This is the greatest Mystery of our faith. We kneel in awe before it dazed by its Infinity, shadowed by our uncomprehending creaturehood.

Today’s prayer may remind us that our faith frees us from the struggle to comprehend.

We are not meant to understand Mystery.
Instead, slowly to absorb It,
ultimately to be absorbed by It.
With each encounter, 
Mystery changes us
by Itself never-changing
yet ever revealing 
the More, 
the Greater, 
the Deeper, 
the One.

Poetry: After Rublev’s Trinity by Carrie Purcell Kahler

Each face turned toward
a face at table leaving
always a space for
one more. An open
door to run through when someone
can’t quite make it home
on their own. Though the
wings work, humans haven’t got
them, and it’s hard to
converse from heights so,
in one hand a staff to lean
on. The other hand
ever reaches down.

Music: O God of Lovliness

  1. Truth, goodness and beauty…absorbing and being absorbed in the Mystery and Solemnity, stillness and movement of the Most Holy Trinity. Opening this post to Rublev’s icon is an invitation to delight in God’s presence. Wisdom, “while playing on the surface of the earth, found delight in the human race.”
