St. Isidore –
In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. We say this prayer over and over. We begin our Mass, our rosary, our prayers with that sign. Notice, there is no verb, no subject, and no object. It merely sets the stage; it is like an announcement, a herald, placing ourselves in God’s presence, filling our whole being with the Holy Trinity. It is like saying, God, here I am, I am ready to communicate with you.
