What is meant by the Blessed Trinity?

Shield-Trinity-Scutum-Fidei-English.svg_

The Blessed Trinity is one and the same God in three divine Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit. God the Father is the first Person of the Blessed Trinity. God the Son is the second Person of the Blessed Trinity. God the Holy Spirit is the third Person of the Blessed Trinity. All three Persons are one God, but each is distinct.

Take me for example (analogously). I’m a father of four sons. I’m also a son; contrary to popular belief, I didn’t slide out from under a rock. Who I really am is a spiritual soul, so I’m a spirit, yet I’m only one person.

Hard to grasp? Don’t feel bad. This is the greatest mystery of our faith. A mystery of faith is a truth we can’t fully understand (doesn’t violate reason), but we accept it on the authority of the one who revealed it—in this case God. Just try to take a little time to wrap your head around it.
