The Church Fathers on the Trinity

Justin Martyr on the Trinity (A.D. 151)
“We will prove that we worship him reasonably; for we have learned that he is the Son of the true God himself, that he holds a second place, and the Spirit of prophecy a third. For this they accuse us of madness, saying that we attribute to a crucified man a place second to the unchangeable and eternal God, the Creator of all things; but they are ignorant of the mystery which lies therein” (First Apology 13:5–6 [A.D. 151]).


Augustine on the Trinity (A.D. 408)
“All the Catholic interpreters of the divine books of the Old and New Testaments whom I have been able to read, who wrote before me about the Trinity, which is God, intended to teach in accord with the Scriptures that the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit are of one and the same substance constituting a divine unity with an inseparable equality; and therefore there are not three gods but one God, although the Father begot the Son, and therefore he who is the Son is not the Father; and the Holy Spirit is neither the Father nor the Son but only the Spirit of the Father and of the Son, himself, too, coequal to the Father and to the Son and belonging to the unity of the Trinity” (The Trinity1:4:7 [A.D. 408]).

Summary from Loyola Press

Homily - An Icon of the Church - Bishop Robert Barron

I Am the Way - Catholic Productions - Brant Pitre (Video)

So the imagery of being the way is simply that of a road that leads you to salvation... [Jesus] says “I am the way and no one comes to the Father but by me.” So what road is he describing?

He is talking about the road to heaven, meaning the road to the Trinity, the road to the Father, the road to life with the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.

That is the essence of heaven for him. And he says “I am the truth.”

In other words, I have the fullness of the truth.

If you look around in our own day, there are so many different religions, so many different cultures and context, and lots of them have little parts of the truth.

There are lots of truth and goodness and beauty in the various major religions of the world.

But Jesus isn't just a piece of the truth, he doesn’t just have some of the truth, he has all of the truth, because he is the truth.

He is the truth come in person.

So he is not just the path to heavenly life and life with God, he is also the fullness of the truth made flesh. --From "I Am the Way", Brant Pitre (See above)

God's Divine Mercy is made real in our lives through the Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession). Here are some practical and useful videos to help you understand more about this most wonderful sacrament.

Do I Have to Confess My Sins to a Priest?

In his popular YouTube Channel "Breaking the Habit", Fr. Casey talks about just why we confess our sins to a priest rather than going directly to God.

Confession is a Place of Victory

Fr. Mike Schmitz and Ascension Press put out some of the best religous instructional material there is. In "Confession is a Place of Victory" Fr. Mike explains how, in Confession, by our actions we don't give up on God and find that God will never give up on us.

How To Go To Confession (Part 1)

How To Go To Confession (Part 2)

In the Precepts of the Church series, Fr. William Nicholas gets down to the nuts and bolts of confession. -- Just in case you need a refresher.

April 12, 2020 - Easter Sunday of the Resurrection of the Lord

After the sabbath, as the first day of the week was dawning, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb. And behold, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven, approached, rolled back the stone, and sat upon it.
His appearance was like lightning and his clothing was white as snow. The guards were shaken with fear of him and became like dead men. Then the angel said to the women in reply, “Do not be afraid! I know that you are seeking Jesus the crucified.

He is not here, for he has been raised just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay.

Matthew 28:1-6

April 10, 2020 - Good Friday

On Good Friday we keep the anniversary of the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ. Although Lent ended yesterday, and now we focus less on our joining of our suffering to that of Christ, nothing is as tangible as the crucifixion to remind us that Christ came to be like us, so that we could be like Him. One of those things in which we must be Christlike is in the acceptance of suffering. Below are links to articles related to this, most difficult, aspect of our Christian life.
