Preparing for Sunday

Trinity Sunday is our patronal feast, so there will be special preparations in the monastery today: mainly, I suspect, additional polishing in the oratory and some baking in the kitchen! Life, as we often remind ourselves, is not all liturgy and loveliness, but we need our highs as well as our lows and Sunday is the great feast of every week. It is our sabbath, and everything about it should have a sabbath quality of joy and blessedness. That doesn’t happen without preparation. So, if you would enjoy your Sunday and make of it a true sabbath, you need to do a little preparation today, especially since rest is an essential part of sabbath blessedness.

  1. Sunday is the great feast of every week. I had forgotten. Thank you for reminding me. I will see what I can do to make it a celebration. Tomorrow we have friends coming for lunch, so it will be a celebration. But I will think of the other Sundays as well.
    Sorry to sound silly, but why is Trinity Sunday your patronal feast?

  2. Well, I hope you won’t spend ALL your time in the kitchen tomorrow and neglect the real feast of friendship! Trinity Sunday is our patronal feast because our community is dedicated to, or named for, The Most Holy Trinity.
