This week we celebrate Trinity Sunday.
Trinity Sunday is celebrated a week after Pentecost Sunday. Trinity Sunday honors the most fundamental of Christian beliefs—belief in the Holy Trinity. The human mind can never fully understand the mystery of the Trinity, but we can sum it up in the following formula: God is three Persons in one Nature. There is only one God, and the three Persons of God—the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit—are all equally God, and they cannot be divided.
Readings are available on the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops website: www.usccb.org
On Saturday, May 29, the 5PM English and 7PM Spanish Masses will be live streamed on YouTube. You may access the live stream by clicking on the YouTube logo under “CONNECT WITH US” at the bottom of the website frontpage. These Masses will be available for future viewing as recordings by clicking the same YouTube link.
The Archdiocese of Chicago continues to update the COVID-19 protocols for attending Mass in person. Although the CDC, the state, and the city have made new recommendations, for the time being, reservations and masks are still required for attending Mass here at St. Padre Pio.
Also, the Archdiocese encourages getting vaccinated. "A Catholic can, in good conscience, receive the COVID-19 vaccines, as declared by our Holy Father and evidenced by Cardinal Cupich’s own vaccination. Receiving the COVID-19 vaccine should be understood as an act of love of our neighbor and part of our moral responsibility for the common good."
