This weekend we celebrate the Solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity! The trinity is a hard concept for adults to grasp, so we definitely understand why it is hard for our children to grasp the concept. Most people, especially kids, are visual learners. That's why I tend to use an apple to teach the concept of the Trinity.
The three parts of an apple relate to the different Persons in the Trinity in this way: The skin is like God the Father, because He protects us. The flesh is like God the Son, because Jesus Christ took on human flesh. The seeds are like God the Holy Spirit, because He helps us to grow.
The Solemnity of the Holy Trinity is yet another day we get to celebrate!! How can you celebrate at home?
* Dinner made with tricolor pasta
*Neapolitan ice cream (3 flavors in 1)
*Triple Chocolate brownies
*Three cheese macaroni and cheese
I think you get the idea - the possibilities are endless!
