Holy Trinity Cathedral
Where Are you?
On March the 6th 2016, I visited the Holy Trinity Orthodox Cathedral church in San Francisco. The site is located at a convenient neighborhood one block south Union st at 1530 Green St. This Orthodox Church is the oldest Orthodox parish in town, and it is one of the few parishes in northern California with such a unique shape. The church was designed to show the Russian unique architect, and its outstanding shape connected to Moscow patriarch. Even though it is a small church, but it looks stunning where it placed right in the corner with a two sides street view.
What religious tradition the site is a part of
The contemporary Orthodox Church historically connects to the earliest Christian communities founded in the eastern part of the Mediterranean by the Apostles of Jesus. Coming after the time where Christianity was shaped in this area by the transfer of the capital imperial from Rome to Constantinople by Constantine the great. The Eastern Orthodox Church considered being one of the oldest religious in the world, saying that it is also one, holy, catholic, and apostolic church established by Jesus. During his great commission Jesus was practicing what it understands to be the original faith passed down from the Apostles. The Eastern Orthodox Church is the image that reflects the holy trinity God the father, his son Jesus, and the Holy Spirit. The father offers his love; the son offers his obedience, and the Holy Spirit express his comfort.

...ad to a greater peace than the one found in mindfulness practice. Orthodox Christians believe that it is important when pray for Christ to have a sort of repetition with sincerity, “oh lord Jesus Christ have mercy on me.” After thinking of this type of prayer I think it not only a spiritual practice, but it is also somehow a recognition of how far is a person from God. The real discipline of such sincere prayer is increasing the limit and ability to reject distractions, and thoughts that usually keep us away from God. This is what I found in the Orthodox Church people their seek God’s help to control their bodily passions by praying as well as fasting. Also, after practicing such a type of prayer, I learned to become more watchful to control my mind and what I think. The reason behind this is by saying the name of God most of the time avoid one’s desirers to be sin.

- Around the time after Jesus’ resurrection, Christians were confused and they needed answers. Jesus was just arisen from the dead. The Church now had Jesus and God to look to, but who was the leader of it all. Who were they to worship. Where does the Spirit fit into all of this. After many questions, they looked to Scripture. Christians have had the belief of Monotheism and that there is One God. Yet, it wasn’t until the Church looked to Scripture that they pieced together what is now known as the Holy Trinity....

- In this paper, I wish not to exalt or boast in my self, for nothing good can come from man. Our Lord our God is so set apart, so divine that our finite minds cannot understand or comprehend spiritual matters. Even though we are torn in our mindset, split between our pre-existing flesh. As well as our new and reborn minds and eyes set into place by the promise of love by the blood, with the marriage of the Holy Spirit. In this paper, I wish to express the mystery of the Holy trinity, from the past to now in the present.... [tags: God, Trinity, Christianity, God the Father]

The essence of understanding the trinity is comprehending that God is three persons, each person is divine, and there is only one God (Johnson, 2014, 174-175). Theologians may debate that the term persons may not be the appropriate term in reference to the trinity just because persons may be viewed as actually being separated in the physical since (Gordon, 2015, 485)....

- Quid Sit: What is the Trinity of Persons. “The Mosaic Revelation, as compared with the cosmic revelation, represents a great advance in the knowledge of the true God; but it represents, nevertheless, nothing more than a stage” (Danielou, 121).
