    This week's message

    Think of a number. Answer: 3. 3 is very special – it’s the first odd prime number and the first number that forms a geometrical figure (a triangle). A lot of ideas about time hunt in 3s: past-present-future/birth-life-death/beginning-middle-end. You only need 3 primary colours (red, yellow, blue) to mix most other colours. The bible is full of 3s e.g. the devil tempted Jesus 3 times; Peter denied Him 3 times; on the 3rd day He rose again; Paul went blind for 3 days after his conversion. And then of course, most importantly, there is the HOLY TRINITY which we proclaim and worship today. Hang on a minute, though. Isn’t there a saying“2’s company, 3’s a crowd”? Ah, but that’s where the 3rd person is a disruptive and intrusive stranger. That is exactly what the Holy Spirit is not. The  Spirit is part of the Father and the Son. None of the 3 is God on His or Its own. They are only God together. Holy, Holy, Holy! Merciful and mighty, God in 3 persons, blessed Trinity.           Fr Michael
