Almighty and everlasting God, you have given to us your servants grace, by the confession of a true faith, to acknowledge the glory of the eternal Trinity, and in the power of your divine Majesty to worship the Unity: Keep us steadfast in this faith and worship, and bring us at last to see you in your one and eternal glory, O Father; who with the Son and the Holy Spirit live and reign, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
!THE FIRST READING: !READER: A Reading from the Word of God written in the
Book of Genesis Chapter 1 beginning at the 1st verse
!In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.
The earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the Spirit of God was moving over the face of the waters. And God said, "Let there be light"; and there was light. And God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, one day. And God said, "Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters." And God made the firmament and separated the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament. And it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. And there was evening and there was morning, a second day. And God said, "Let the waters under the heavens be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear." And it was so. God called the dry land Earth, and the
waters that were gathered together he called Seas. And God saw that it was good. And God said, "Let the earth put forth vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind, upon the earth." And it was so. The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed according to their own kinds, and trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening and there was morning, a third day. And God said, "Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to separate the day from the night; and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years, and let them be lights in the firmament of the heavens to give light upon the earth." And it was so. And God made the two great lights, the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night; he made the stars also. And God set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light upon the earth, to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. And there was evening and there was morning, a fourth day. And God said, "Let the waters bring forth swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the firmament of the heavens." So God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, with which the waters swarm, according to their kinds, and every winged bird according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. And God blessed them, saying, "Be fruitful and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth." And there was evening and there was morning, a fifth day. And God said, "Let the earth bring forth living creatures according to their kinds: cattle and creeping things and beasts of the earth according to their kinds." And it was so. And God made the beasts of the earth according to their kinds and the cattle according to their kinds, and everything that creeps upon the ground according to its kind. And God saw that it was good. Then God said, "Let us make man in our image, after our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth." So God created man in his own image, in the image of God he created him; male and female he created them. And God blessed them, and God said to them, "Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing that
moves upon the earth." And God said, "Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit; you shall have them for food. And to every beast of the earth, and to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for food." And it was so. And God saw everything that he had made, and behold, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, a sixth day. Thus the heavens and the earth were finished, and all the host of them. And on the seventh day God finished his work which he had done, and he rested on the seventh day from all his work which he had done. So God blessed the seventh day and hallowed it, because on it God rested from all his work which he had done in creation.

THE HOLY GOSPEL
A Reading from the Holy Gospel according to Matthew Glory to Christ our Saviour. Now the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain to which Jesus had directed them. And when they saw him they worshiped him; but some doubted. And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, to the close of the age."
The Gospel of Christ. Praise to Christ our Lord.
From the Rector’s Notebook Greetings:
Today is the First Sunday after Pentecost. It is Trinity Sunday.
In the observance of Christ’s passage from this world to the Father, we would have considered the action of the Father in the crucifixion, resurrection and ascension of Christ. We would also have celebrated the divine action in the coming of Holy Spirit.
This observance of the Paschal Mystery brings us to the celebration of the doctrinal idea of God as a Trinity - Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
The notion of Trinity is etched into our minds and forms an important part of our biblical, spiritual outlook. In addition to that, we find a trinitarian pattern written into almost all aspects of the sacred liturgy from beginning to end.
From the opening acclamation “Blessed be God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit” to the blessing and dismissal, we call on the name of the glorious and undivided Trinity.
When we pray, prepare to preach or listen to the sermon, and to make our communion at the Altar we make the sign of the cross and call on the God who is Father Son and Spirit.
The exposition of God as Trinity brings to mind the Greek Fathers as Professor Patrick Regan tells us in an article entitled “Pneumatological and Eschatological”.
Regan states that the Greek Fathers in their elaboration of the trinitarian doctrine begin with the person of the Father, who is considered as the unique principle, origin or source of divinity. From him the Son is said "to come forth", and, following the terminology of St. Johnâ€™s Gospel, the Spirit is said "to proceedâ€?.
But when the Counselor comes, whom I shall send to you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will bear witness to me; John 15:26
One of the aspects about the Trinity with which we have become familiar if not comfortable is the view that there is a personalistic perspective regarding this doctrine.
Regan explains that the element of plurality and that of unity in God are conceived in personal terms. Each Person of the Trinity relates to each other in a personal way. The wonderful part is that the Trinity in unity also relates to us in a personal manner as well.
God almighty loves us, saves us and is with us always. He comes to us in the Blessed Sacrament and shares himself with us in order that we may dwell with Him for ever.
May we remain steadfast in this faith and encourage all in our homes to come to love this personal God and Lord who is Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
!Your friend and priest, !! Noel A. Burke, MA (The Revâ€™d Canon) Rector

HEALTH CORNER WHAT IS CHIKUNGUNYA?
Recently we have been hearing about a strange disease called Chikungunya (pronounced chik-en-gun-ye). Its name is of African origin and means "that which bends up" because of the appearance of persons as a result of tremendous joint pain. Chikungunya is a virus which is transmitted to persons by the Aedes mosquito. SIGNS AND SYMPTOMS Sudden high fever Signs and symptoms may manifest approximately 3-7 days after a person has been bitten by the mosquito.
!Joint pain particularly in the wrists and ankles
Nausea and vomiting Pain behind the eyes which worsens with eye movement Loss of appetite Rash on chest and upper body Most people feel better within a week. However it has been reported that some people experience joint pains for months.
Your best prevention is to prevent mosquito breeding and its bite. Do all the usual things such as: ➢ Pour kerosene oil on stagnant water ➢ Change water in vases ➢ Discard water in water saucers ➢ Discard old bottles, coconut shells and any containers that may collect water around the house ➢ Use mosquito repellants ➢ Use mosquito nets If you experience some of these symptoms, go to your doctor! A blood test will confirm whether you have Chikungunga. There are no antiviral medicines to treat this disease and therefore any treatment given will be for the pain and fever. REMEMBER DON'T USE ASPIRIN, GO TO YOUR DOCTOR! REFERENCES (1) Ministry of Health, Barbados
