"There are some things so Beautiful

that one can only gaze in awe" (+Timothy Dolan this morning)

This icon, in Toronto, Ontario, is titled, if my memory serves, "Holy Theologian Bernard in the Processions of the Holy Trinity." The three holy visitors to Abraham, the iconic representation of the Trinity, are those three angel figures. The tiny guy in the righthand corner, who's prostrating after dropping his book and pen, is the indomitable Bernard Lonergan. I myself suspect that Karl and Hugo Rahner and Hans Urs von Balthasar are just out-frame right in the same state of awe.

A glorious Trinity Sunday to you!
