This morning as I read from the Book of Common Prayer I meditated upon the Trinity and the Unity in Trinity which is to be worshiped. As the prayer book says, “The Father is incomprehensible, the Son incomprehensible : and the Holy Ghost incomprehensible.” The three Persons of the Godhead are also described as uncreated and eternal. Yet, “there are not three incomprehensibles, nor three uncreated : but one uncreated, and one incomprehensible.” As the faith of our fathers says to us, “the Catholick Faith is this : That we worship one God in Trinity, and Trinity in Unity” and “except a man believe faithfully, he cannot be saved.”
This is truly a great Mystery to mankind which demands our contemplation. There can be no greater Mystery, in fact, than this perfection.
Listen to “The Mystery of Trinity – The Beauty of God” by Bishop John Guernsey, from Missouri who now resides in Virginia. He is Bishop of the Diocese of the Mid-Atlantic for the Anglican Church in North America – a denomination of traditionalist Anglican churches founded in 2009 who were alienated by the extremely liberal and unbiblical direction of the Episcopal Church USA.
