The Ramon Orlina & Florante Caedo Trinity
The cover of the 1992 fiesta souvenir program of the Most Holy Trinity Parish shows an illustration of a new iconographic interpretation of the Trinity as drawn by Ramon Orlina & Florante Caedo as commissioned by Msgr. Manuel G. Gabriel. Again, it would have been difficult, although not impossilbe, to recover the background of the 1992 Trinity without the publication of the souvenir program. Of course, neither does it help us reconcile the symbolic confusion inherent in this highly Christocentric new “Trinitarian” icon. An icon often interpreted as an image of the Resurrected Christ instead of the Trinity (see related blogs – click on Trinitarian Iconography under Categories).
