One of the most discussed, and often misunderstood, doctrines of the Christian faith is that of the Trinity. How can God be of three different forms, yet be the same? Even though the Triune nature of God is found in Genesis, in the Gospels, and in the New Testament, we still find it hard to wrap our minds around the concept. As Saint Augustine said, there is not a single meaning of the Trinity or a single way of describing it; they are symbols of a greater reality. So, let us focus less on defining God in our terms and more on experiencing Him in all His forms as Christ commands us, by doing His work.
The Scripture references are Genesis 1:1-2:4a, Canticle 13, and 2 Corinthians 13:11-13. The Gospel reference is Matthew 28:16-20.
