Our Lady of the Blessed Trinity

  // –> // –>

 

On the feast day of the Assumption, August 15, 2006, a day that started with heavy rains, the parishioners of Most Holy Trinity Parish in Balic-balic witnessed the blessingby Fr. Enrico Martin Adoviso of the “Our Lady of the Blessed Trinity” Meditation Garden.

The “Our Lady of the Blessed Trinity” of Balic-balic (above) is based on the iconography of a similar 1946 Notre-Dame de la Trinite (see below). Both images show the flame of the Trinity that penetrated the heart of the Virgin Mary. The Trinity flame has three symbols namely the hand (God the Father), the cross (God the Son), and the dove (God the Holy Spirit). However, the Lady of the Blessed Trinity of Balic-balic has a halo of stars surrounding her head (stars being a typical symbol associated with the Virgin Mary).

The image of Our Lady of the Blessed Trinity stands in the middle of a meditation garden (as one enters the main gate, on the right side parish parking area) where parishioners could spend a few moments of medidation and prayer in front of the image. One of the prayers recited is the “Act of Consecration to Our Lady of the Blessed Trinity.”

ACT OF CONSECRATION TO OUR LADY OF THE BLESSED TRINITY

With all my heart I praise you, Most Holy Virgin, above all angels and saints in paradise, Daughter of the Eternal Father, and I consecrate to you my soul with all its faculties.

HAIL MARY

With all my heart I praise you, Most Holy Virgin, above all angels and saints in paradise, beloved Mother of the Son of God. I consecrate to you my body with all its senses.

HAIL MARY

With all my heart I praise you, Most Holy Virgin, above all angels and saints in paradise, beloved Spouse of the Holy Spirit. I consecrate to you my heart with all its affections and beseech you to obtain for me from the Most Holy Trinity all the graces necessary for Salvation.

HAIL MARY

end of prayer.
The Act of Consecration to the Blessed Trinity comes from a prayer given an imprimatur by Francis Cardinal Spellman, Archbishop of New York, in February 7, 1963. This same prayer was given a Philippine imprimatur by Jose N. Jovellanos V.G. in January 23, 1964 and propagated in a small devotional prayer booklet.

The text focuses on propagating the practice of saying three Hail Mary’s and the booklet cites St. Gertrude’s revelation:

“While the Saint sang the Hail Mary, at the matins of the Annunciation, she suddenly saw spring out of the Heart of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit, three bright flames which penetrated the Heart of the Holy Virgin.”

In this revelation, we then can see the source of the iconography of “Our Lady of the Blessed Trinity” especially in terms of the Trinity flame.
