Could some folks chime in with helping me understand the Trinity(in the most simple way, like you would to a child)
I’ve been rambling in my head about it…see below…
- I am a human being
- I am a daughter
- I am a soul
Each are separate, yet each are together as one, me.
(I am many other things(not all nice, but who is)…widow, retired teacher, artist, knitter, various hobbies and occupations which are not part of me, but are things which interest my personality)
(But the core, below, for the sake of trying to explain my comparison)
-I am a human being …but:
that person was/is a wife(I still feel like a wife, even though he is gone)
That person is also a daughter
That person has a soul
I am all of these, and yet still one person.
Without meaning to be in the slightest way cheeky - I am not comparing myself to God, just trying to get my autistic and very literal thinking brain to find a way of understanding the Trinity.
Any help? I’m not yet Catholic, and am learning a lot, but I need to understand this as a child would, despite being a not very healthy of’ girl in her 60s.
