Feast of the Most Holy Trinity
Epistle • Romans 11:33-36
Lesson from the Epistle of Blessed Paul the Apostle to the Romans.
[The fundamental dogma of our Faith is that of the Holy Trinity.]
O the depth of the riches of the wisdom and of the knowledge of God! How incomprehensible are His judgments, and how unsearchable His ways! For who hath known the mind of the Lord? Or who hath been His counsellor? Or who hath first given to Him, and recompense shall be made Him? For of Him, and by Him, and in Him, are all things: to Him be glory for ever. Amen.
Gospel • Matthew 28:18-20
Continuation of the holy Gospel according to St. Matthew.
[It is in the Name of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Ghost that Christians are baptized. Mission of the Apostles.]
At that time Jesus said to His disciples: All power is given to Me in Heaven and on earth. Going therefore, teach ye all nations, baptizing them in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you; and behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world.
