In your devotions this week:
Saturday, May 26th is the memorial of Augustine, first Archbishop of Canterbury who died in 605. In 596, Pope Gregory the Great sent Augustine with 40 monks into the mostly pagan land of England. This was a very dangerous situation and Augustine turned back. Bolstered by Gregory’s letters of support, Augustine landed in England in the spring of 597 – his presence and work established Canterbury as the eventual point of union for the world-wide Anglican Communion. https://www.britannica.com/biography/Saint-Augustine-of-Canterbury
Trinity Sunday is May 27th. It is a Principal Feast in our Church. Here is what the Britannica website had to say… Feast of the Holy Trinity, also called Trinity Sunday, feast in honour of the Trinity. It is celebrated in the Christian churches on the Sunday following Pentecost (the 50th day after Easter). It is known that the feast was celebrated on this day from as early as the 10th century. Celebration of the feast gradually spread in the churches of northern Europe, and in 1334 Pope John XXII approved it for the entire church.
Many blessings to you this week!
