Trinity Sunday

I arise today
Through a mighty strength, the invocation of the Trinity,
Through the belief in the threeness,
Through the confession of the oneness
Of the Creator of Creation.

-- from St. Patrick's Breastplate

Here's a lovely Trinitarian thought:

I had three chairs in my house; one for solitude, two for friendship, three for society.

-- Henry David Thoreau

Now I want to tell you about an amazing website I found by accident while looking for an image appropriate for the day. It's called The Book of Threes and it explores how "three-ness" shows up in all sorts of ways -- in history, philosophy, mythology, art, humor, sports, and much more!

Go over there and have fun in honor of the day!
