I’ve always been confused by the fact that glory can be given to the Trinity; i.e, Trinity can be the proper object of the name God. We can glorify each of the persons because of each we say he is God. We can glorify God after in the essence and not in the person, because he is one God. Now in a similar sense we can say, the Trinity is God, but the predicate implies a change in the signification of the subject such that God is said of Trinity in the sense of a relation with regard to reason only, and not as a proper name. But for Trinity to take God as a proper name, we have to acknowledge the Trinity as a person: that is, the subsisting relations of the three person functioning together, yet each individuated.
Although the relations are self-subsisting we are inclined to worship them as they designate one person. It would seem combinations of persons per se are different in aspect from hypostases and perhaps from persons. So what does it mean when we venerate the Trinity as such? And can we give the proper name God to combinations of two people?
