It’s impossible to truly comprehend the Holy Trinity, but St. Cyril of Jerusalem tells us what we really need to know:

The Father through the Son, with the Holy Spirit, is the giver of all grace; the gifts of the Father are none other than those of the Son, and those of the Holy Spirit; for there is one salvation, one Power, one Faith; One God, the Father; One Lord, His only-begotten Son; One Holy Spirit, the Comforter. And it is enough for us to know these things; but inquire not curiously into His nature or substance: for had it been written, we would have spoken of it; what is not written, let us not venture on; it is sufficient for our salvation to know that there is Father, and Son, and Holy Spirit.

"I love AFR and listen daily—mostly to music but am beginning to explore the talk side as well. Thanks for your wonderful work. I was born into Orthodoxy, but love hearing and feeling the zeal of converts to our faith—AND learning FROM them!"
