Theme: Unity of God is our model
What is the meaning of the Trinity? This word originates from the Latin word ‘trini’ meaning ‘threefold’. The term was first used by Tertullian to denote the central doctrine of the Christian religion that in Jesus dwells the Father and the Holy Spirit not withstanding the order of terms. In each Person dwells the other two Persons of One God. This truth is supported by St. Paul when he teaches that “in Him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell bodily” Colossians 1:19;2:9. Each of these Persons is truly the same God and has all His infinite perfections; yet He is fully distinct of the other Persons. The one and only God is the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, all eternally begotten. Holy Trinity Sunday celebrates God who utterly transcendent has chosen to be God who is completely with and for us. All the same we must keep in mind that this definition is constituted for us but is not created by us because He is a mystery of faith.
