Trinidad Sunday

Christopher Columbus discovered the Island of Trinidad for Spain on July 31st 1498. It was his third voyage. There are those who say that he saw three hills and named the island for the Holy Trinity. Some say that there are no "three peaks" so that he couldn't have named it because of the hills. What is clear is that it was/is named for the Holy Trinity.

This Sunday (19th June 2011) is the feast of the Holy Trinity, so in a way this is the feast day of the Island of Trinidad. So it shouldn't just be Trinity Sunday, It should be Trinidad Sunday.

Praise God for this country. Praise God for this island. Praise God for it's people.
