In the Catholic Church it is officially known as the Solemnity of Wikipediathe Most Holy Trinity. Prior to the reforms of the Second Vatican Council, it marked the end of a three-week period when church weddings were forbidden. The period began on Rogation Sunday, the fifth Sunday after Easter. Trinity Sunday was established as a Double of the Second Class by Pope John XXII to celebrate the Trinity. It was raised to the dignity of a Double of the First Class by Pope Pius X on 24 July 1911.
In the traditional Divine Office, the Athanasian Creed (Quicumque vult) is said on this day at Prime. Before 1960, it was said on all Sundays after Epiphany and Pentecost which do not fall within Octaves or on which a feast of Double rank or higher was celebrated or commemorated, as well as on Trinity Sunday. The 1960 reforms reduced it to once a year, on this Sunday.
In the 1962 Missal, the Mass for the First Sunday After Pentecost is not said or commemorated on Sunday (it is permanently impeded there by Trinity Sunday), but is used during the week if the ferial Mass is being said.
The Thursday after Trinity Sunday is observed as the Feast of Corpus Christi. In some countries, including the United States,Canada, and Spain, it may be celebrated on the following Sunday, when parishioners are more likely to attend Mass and be able to celebrate the feast.
Have you heard about the second conversion? Many Catholics (and Christians from all streams for that matter) have not experienced what the Church calls the second conversion or the “conversion of the baptized.” This experience is explained below and is from the Catechism of the Catholic Church. It is ultimately a dynamic “Divine Mercy” encounter with the Lord. It stems from a contrite heart and grace colliding in a symphony of mercy poured out on the sinner. It is the beginning of life as never experienced before if one “grows up” in their salvation. Maturing in Christ is fundamental to this new walk and greatly aids in one becoming a positive witness of the Gospel.
“How many observe Christ’s birthday! How few, His precepts!”
- Benjamin Franklin
Jesus calls to conversion. This call is an essential part of the proclamation of the kingdom: “The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent, and believe in the gospel.”16 In the Church’s preaching this call is addressed first to those who do not yet know Christ and his Gospel. Also, Baptism is the principal place for the first and fundamental conversion. It is by faith in the Gospel and by Baptism17 that one renounces evil and gains salvation, that is, the forgiveness of all sins and the gift of new life.
