“Trinity whom I adore”

Elizabeth of the Trinity is a saint of and for our time.  She centered her whole life on the Trinity dwelling within her.  She called the Father, Son and Spirit, “My Three”.   This indwelling can seem impossible to us, but back in the sixteenth century, Julian of Norwich puts it more simply perhaps:

“ For the almighty truth of the Trinity is our Father, for he made us and keeps us in him.  And the deep wisdom of the Trinity is our Mother, in whom we are enclosed.  And the high goodness of the Trinity is our Lord, and in him we are enclosed and he in us.  We are enclosed in the Father, and we are enclosed in the Son, and we are enclosed in the Holy Spirit.  And the Father is enclosed in us, the Son is enclosed in us, and the Holy Spirit is enclosed in us and the Holy Spirit is enclosed in us, almighty, all wisdom and all goodness…..”    (Shewings, ch. 54)

For us, maybe the cue is thankfulness for this gift so great we cannot understand–but we just accept it in faith and gratitude.
