Trinity Sunday: Three Persons in the unity of the divinity

More than 800 years ago, St. Hildegard of Bingen received a series of illuminations including one regarding the Holy Trinity. Her drawing (below) depicts God as a circle, embracing all. Jesus appears blue, symbolizing compassion, with hands extended in a healing position. Binding all together is the Holy Spirit shown in the gold and silver cables woven together.

There is message of interconnectivity here between divinity and humanity. Reflect, if you will, on some of Hildegard's words:

Beautiful message and beautiful visual. Thank you Sisters!

This is an absolutely beautiful reflection. It says so much about God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit!

I am grateful that you told me about St. Hildegard of Bingen. Thank you.

Thanks, Renae, for your reflection questions. I am reminded of being "hugged by God" whenever there's a gorgeous sunset in the west followed by a huge glowing full moon in the east...truly being surrounded in the embrace of God.
