The Celtic Trinity Knot is a tradition Celtic symbol representing God the Father, his son Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.  Celtic knots are perhaps the most recognizable artwork in Celtic history.  They are an iconic symbol of Ireland and a popular feature in Celtic art dating back to 450 A.D.  Trinity knots are frequently used in Insular art.  Insular art is believed to have originated from the Irish monasticism of Celtic Christianity in the early middle ages.

Trinity knots can also have a circle incorporated into the symbol.  Depending on who you ask, the circle represents eternity, eternal life, or the love of God. Regardless, the knots are a beautiful way to communicate a spiritual truth.  In each knot, there is no beginning and no end.  So is the timeless nature of our Heavenly Father, who showers us with mercy, grace, and love.

God bless your Saint Patrick’s Day!
