We believe in The Triune God.
Christians believe in the Trinity—three persons in one God. It is a fundamental tenet of our faith. God the Father is the maker of heaven and earth. God the Son came down from heaven for us and our salvation. God the Holy Spirit is the giver of life. We know and profess all these things when we recite the Creed at Mass. In fact, every time we bless ourselves with The Sign of the Cross (and Catholics do that a lot), we are reaffirming our belief.
When was the last time we gave any thought to our words and actions as we zipped through The Sign of the Cross? We often forget that this is our most common prayer. It is the first prayer we teach to our children. We guide their small hands to reverently shape the cross in rhythm with the words. Do we pay any attention to how we do it ourselves? Are we aware of what we are professing or has it become just a memorized preamble to other prayers?
In today's gospel, Jesus commissioned the disciples to baptize people "in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit". This is our trinitarian belief. From the Holy Trinity, we receive our life and our salvation.
