Today we celebrated the great Solemnity of the Holy and Undivided Trinity. Father Mervyn preached. He showed an empty bag and then produced an egg from it. He explained that an egg comprised of three parts: the shell, the yolk and the white. All three parts performed a function but without any one of the parts the others had no purpose. This illustrated the Holy Trinity of Father, Son and Holy Spirit. He broke the egg open and separated the three parts into three bowls to demonstrate the point that the three parts were truly egg: the shell is egg, the white is egg and the yolk is egg. Yet, whilst they are three parts, all truly egg, they can function independently but remain one egg.
Tomorrow we are taking a mini-bus to the National Pilgrimage of the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham. We leave at 7.15 a.m. and call in at St. Francis of Assisi, Barkingside to collect 4 passengers who are coming with us. We will be stopping en route for breakfast and after the pilgrimage we will stop in Swaffham for Fish and Chips on the way home.
Yesterday we went to the Trooping of the Colour rehearsal at Horse Guards Parade – for full report see Father Mervyns bog at: www. fathermervynjenningsSSC.blogspot.com
