Sunday, 26th May 2013 THE MOST HOLY TRINITY

26 May

THE HOLY TRINITY

from the Catechism of the Catholic Church

The mystery of the Most Holy Trinity is the central mystery of the Christian faith and of Christian life.  God alone can make it known to us by revealing Himself as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. (261)

 The Incarnation of God’s Son reveals that God is the eternal Father and that the Son is consubstantial with the Father, which means that, in the Father and with the Father, the Son is one and the same God. (262)

The mission of the Holy Spirit, sent by the Father in the name of the Son  (Jn 14:26) and by the Son ‘from the Father’ (Jn 15:26) reveals that, with them, the Spirit is one and the same God.  ‘With the Father and the Son he is worshipped and glorified’ (Nicene Creed). (263)

‘The Holy Spirit proceeds from the Father as the first principle and, by the eternal gift of this to the Son, from the communion of both the Father and the Son’          (St. Augustine, De Trin.15, 26, 47: PL 42,1095). (264)

‘Now this is the Catholic faith:  We worship one God in the Trinity and the Trinity in unity, without either confusing the persons or dividing the substance; for the person of the Father is one, the Son’s is another, the Holy Spirit’s is another; but the Godhead of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit is one, their glory equal, their majesty coeternal’ (Athanasian Creed DS 75: ND 16). (266)
