Trinity Love

Almighty Immortal Invisible

Thomas KenHoly Trinity love needs to become incorporated into our Christian lives and not just be cold, hard theology. We need a warm loving relationship with all three persons of the Trinity. Bishop Thomas Ken (1637-1711) a one time Bishop of Bath and Wells in England, offered a poem in praise of the Holy Trinity. "Praise and honor, thanksgiving and praise more than we can utter be unto thee, O most adorable Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, by all angels, all men, all creatures for ever and ever Amen and Amen. To God the Father, who first loved us, and made us accepted in the Beloved; To God the Son who loved us, and washed us from our sins in his own blood; To God the Holy Ghost, who sheds the love of God abroad in our hearts be all love and all glory for time and for eternity. Amen." This prayer was shot through with the love of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit as the most adorable trinity.

Most Adorable

John DowdenArchbishop John Dowden (1840-1910) became Bishop of Edinburgh in Scotland in 1886. He too responded with a prayer for Holy Trinity love, "O Lord God, almighty, immortal, invisible, the mysteries of whose being are unsearchable; accept, we beseech thee, our praises for the revelation which thou hast made of thyself, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, three persons and one God; and mercifully grant that, ever holding fast this faith, we may magnify thy glorious name; who lives and reigns, one God, world without end. Amen."
