Trinity: Let It Be

At the parish, I was grateful for a non-catechetical homily this weekend. I see from a quick perusal of St Blog’s we have about four or five posts, almost more obligatory than a holy day, attempting to explain the nature of the Trinity. My thinking: let a mystery be.

Instead, the pastor focused on hope, and Saint Paul provided a lyrical message:

Not only that, but we even boast of our afflictions,
knowing that affliction produces endurance,
and endurance, proven character,
and proven character, hope,
and hope does not disappoint,
because the love of God has been poured out into our hearts
through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.

Do you think we’ll arrive at the day when we see fewer Trinity Sunday preachers focus on basic theology and more on the message of the Scriptures and the liturgy? Anybody hear any good homilies this weekend?
