MOSCOW, June 3 (Itar-Tass) — Russia is marking St. Trinity on Sunday. All Orthodox churches across the country are decorated with fresh herbs symbolizing the renovation of human soul.
Patriarch of Moscow and All Russia Kirill will lead a church service at the Trinity-St. Sergius Lavra, the main spiritual center of Russia, on Sunday. Thousands of Christians visit the Lavra for St. Trinity.
The St. Trinity holiday, glorifying the nature of God as existing in three persons: Father, Son and the Holy Spirit, was instituted to commemorate the descending of the Holy Spirit on the Apostles that took place on the 50th day upon Christ’s Resurrection.
God sent the Holy Spirit to Earth to educate human souls. Cordial joyfulness, piece of mind and the highest creative achievements that are usually called inspired and passionate are the main manifestations of the Holy Spirit in the life of humans.
This year, the St. Trinity Day coincides with the Day of St. Byzantine Czar Constantine and Czarina Helena.
