Dancing on the Head of a Pin

There is a legend of St Thomas Aquinas asking "How many angels can dance on the head of a pin?" At this blog we ask all questions dealing with our faith and spirituality. Some are down to earth, rubber meets the road questions, while others are more lofty...like, how many angels can dance on the head of a pin?

Sunday's Sermon

Yesterday was Trinity Sunday. St Augustine once said that
"If you don't believe in the Trinity you will lose your soul, but if you try to understand the Trinity you will lose your mind!"
The Trinity is a mysterium tremendum - a tremenous mystery. In the sermon on Trinity Sunday, there was no explanation of how God is three in one - one nature shared by three persons, or how each hypostatsis relates to the other (yikes)...instead we focused on the creative power of the Trinity. God, out of sheer love, created the universe and all that exists therein. God, out of sheer love, calls us to him, so that we may emerge as new creations - dead to rebellion, alive to love.
