Brief description:

In the Creed, we profess our belief in the Holy Trinity: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. God revealed Himself as one God in the Pentateuch of the Old Testament, and as three Persons in the New Testament. The word “nature” answers “what are you?”; the word “person” answers “who are you?”. What is the Holy Trinity? God. Who is the Holy Trinity? Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Every spirit has the capacity to understand and love and God is pure spirit. The Father begot His understanding as His Son and their mutual love became the Holy Spirit. These two acts are eternal and why all three Persons of the Trinity have always existed. St. Augustine was once perplexed by pondering this mystery and saw a child scooping the seawater into a hole at the beach, so he said to him, “There is so much water in the ocean. How can you fit it in the hole?” The child replied, “How about you? Do you think you can fit the Holy Trinity in your limited mind?” Because God is not solitary, He is the source of all human organizations: families, countries, and the Church. In all these, when we act with self-giving love, we reflect the inner life of God.
