Trinity Sunday

The Sunday after Pentecost is celebrated as Trinity Sunday. The Blessed Trinity of three persons - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit - in one nature - God - is a mystery impossible for us to fully comprehend. Nevertheless, we try, because a more perfect (though still imperfect) understanding of God leads to a more perfect love of God.

The complexity of the dogma is highlighted, for me, by the Athanasian Creed. The three persons are separate and distinct, yet there is but one God.
