RCIA last night was about the Trinity. Our class has grown and we now have 4 candidates. Along with sponsors and teachers, we had 10 in our classroom last night. This is much better, the conversations are better, the classroom is more robust.

Bottom line: The concept of a tri-une God, the Trinity of God the Father, Jesus Christ the Son and the Holy Spirit, is a mystery beyond the ability of human beings to understand. We can imagine the Trinity as so many things, a shamrock -- one leaf with three lobes; the power of the sun -- light, warmth, growth; a river opening into the sea, etc... but all imaginings leave a lot to be desired. St. Thomas Aquinas has a section on the Trinity if you want to read deeper.
