Happy Feast of the Holy Trinity!!
I have a distinct memory from when I was a kid that centered on the Trinity. I had just overheard two adults talking about how hard it was to wrap their minds around "three Persons in one." I remember feeling shocked and confused. Without considering that I might be out of place due to my youth, I assured them that it wasn't hard at all to understand it! Somewhere I had gotten the image of a three-bladed fan that I correlated with the Trinity, and I shared this with them. Although they appeared to be impressed, my guess is that they were likely patronizing me a bit. However, that memory still lingers, and I have thought about it often throughout my life. Were those two church-going adults truly confused about the three-in-one concept, or were they actually puzzled about one of its deeper mysteries?
This feast is one of the few feasts designated in the church that centers on a specific mystery. I think that this is perfectly understandable given that it is so central to our faith.
Personally, I think that the Trinity is mindboggling.
There is so much to learn and so many avenues to follow in exploring its depths that one could easily spend a lifetime searching and only cover part of it.
For those who love learning and the thrill of discovery, the Trinity is a perfect go-to. Revelations abound, so getting into this intense mystery provides lots of reward for those explorers willing to dive deep.
And for those of us not feeling the call to take that plunge quite yet, there is still so much to gain in just touching the surface. Understanding the Trinity is to understand who we are. Unearthing some of its truth means we can find some of the answers to the questions of why we are here, what we are called to be, and where we need to be going. We all need these answers. The whole world needs these answers.
So let's not be afraid to take a chance and stick our toe in the pool! I think we'll find the water cool and inviting, drawing us ever deeper into an understanding not only of God but of ourselves as well!
