In sports and many other events a three-peat - a repeat of some win or accomplishment - three times in a row. To be able to repeat a successful campaign - effort - three times in a row is a sign of excellent. A triple crown of success - three being the magic number in so many places. Today the Church celebrates its own three-peat as it celebrates the Solemnity of the Holy Trinity - Father - Son - Holy Spirit - One God - three manifestations. To clearly understand the Trinity would take pages and pages to explain the theology that makes this understandable - even then - most walk away - still confused. As faithful Christians - most accept the doctrine of a God with three names - accepting that the Trinity is a Mystery understood only by God .
As modern day disciples of Christ we accept without question that God does exists in three identities all equal - in the form of the One God. Rather than waste valuable time debating a Mystery that is difficult to comprehend - we do as Jesus told us - go make disciples of all nations - baptizing in the Name of the Father - Son - Holy Spirit. As our lives are transformed by the Holy Spirit working in our own lives - we freely share this Mystery - this Gift with all whom we meet. We accept with open minds and hearts - Jesus we trust in You - Your Words - Your Promises - Your Gift of New Life.
