Today we celebrate the Solemnity of The Most Holy Trinity. On this day we reflect on the unique teaching of the Christian Church on the nature of God. Saint Athanasius famously (and beautifully) gave us a Creed that delves into the great mystery of the Holy Trinity. The image below was used during the Middle Ages to make clear what the Church teaches about the Holy
Trinity. It is still useful today.
The Shield of the Trinity, a visual representation of the doctrine of the Trinity, derived from the Athanasian Creed. The Latin reads: "The Father is God, The Son is God, The Holy Spirit is God; God is the Father, God is the Son, God is the Holy Spirit; The Father is not the Son, The Son is not the Father, The Father is not the Holy Spirit, The Holy Spirit is not the Father, The Son is not the Holy Spirit, The Holy Spirit is not the Son."
