Trinity 3 Joys
Aside from the joy of blessing the images of the Holy Evangelists and the presence of a large section of the Schumacher clan, joy in the hymns (Today Your Mercy Calls Us - "no question will be asked us how often we have come / although we oft have wandered, it is our Father's home" - Lord, To You I Make Confession - I Come, O Savior - God's Own Child - The King of Love), joy in the readings (You will drown all our sins in the depths of the sea - Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners - lays it on his back, rejoicing...joy over a sinner who repents)...joy in the Eucharist (all times and all places...). What a wonderful day in the Church Year - and I remember that 4 years ago, on this day, Dr. Norman Nagel surprised me by showing up to preach the homily at late service in honor of the 20th anniversary of my ordination into the Office of the Holy Ministry - he preached the Epistle and I was so blessed by his proclamation. You can read it here: Homily for Trinity 3.
