As we are celebrating Trinity Sunday my mind and heart cannot not ruminate and contemplate the beauty of this outstanding mystery, the Holy Trinity, of which none plumb the depths,
The Catechism of the Catholic Church is so right when it squarely tells us: The Trinity is a mystery of faith in the strict sense, one of the “mysteries that are hidden in God, which can never be known unless they are revealed by God”. To be sure, God has left traces of his Trinitarian being in his work of creation and in his Revelation throughout the Old Testament. But his inmost Being as Holy Trinity is a mystery that is inaccessible to reason alone or even to Israel’s faith before the Incarnation of God’s Son and the sending of the Holy Spirit (no.237).
And it is precisely to these traces of knowledge about the Trinity that the following reflections will be dealing with. As the title shows already it shall be presenting the contribution of some early Christian writers on this foundational subject of our faith which is the Holy Trinity.
