THE MOST HOLY TRINITY SUNDAY (YEAR A) The Holy Trinity is the mystery of our salvation, the Trinity of unity, of love, a mystery and at the same time very present to us, says the Archbishop, Most Rev. Valerian Okeke. He reminded us that the Trinity created us, loves us, saved us and of all encompassing inclusive nature of God's love. He prayed that the Trinity one God may bless, be with you, adopt you as His own heritage and accompany you in the journey of life.
