3 2us with Mgr Leo Maasburg       
"Our heart is built according to the Trinity, our love is built according to the Trinitarian love. All nature has a trinitarian character, one could say a genetic character of the Trinity, a fingerprint of the Trinity - from the nuclear structure to heaven and earth, from man and woman to all the laws of the universe."

3 2us with Fr Francis Selman      
"The Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit are not only in one another but they are also in us: “In that day you will know that I am in my Father, and you in me, and I in you” (Jn 14, 20). This is especially true of the Eucharist when, through communion, Christ is in us and we in Christ. If Christ is in us, and the Father is in him, the Father is in us. As the Father and the Son are never without their love, who is the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit is also given to us with them as the Gift of their love."

Sunday Evangelium with Fr Andrew Pinsent      
Human reason can help to clear away erroneous conceptions of the Trinity, and it is also possible to trace the fruits of the Trinity for our civilisation, but to know the Holy Trinity personally we need ourselves to become holy."
