The trinity

Understanding the Mystery

The greatest mystery of our Christian faith is the Trinity and the reality that we worship God who is one being in three persons. As humans, though we are made in the image of God, we are one being in one person. The full understanding of how this functions is something we may fully understand but also deepens the reality that we are not God.

The Athanasian Creed offers the clearest definition for the faithful to attempt to understand this reality and to explain the Trinitarian formula in a way that does not lead to the pitfalls that we find within the history which do not honor the Oneness of God and/or the personhood of each person of God. The picture above is utilized to help explain the concept.
