WONDER WHERE THIS ONE CAME FROM!
BUT!!!!!!!!!!!! I am well enough to laugh! Just wanted to let you know I am here and I am going to get out and read today! We have dark skies and thunder boomers and rain, just the kind of day to pile up in my comfy chair and read your blog and say hello!
I found this in my email this morning and HAD to share!
Think of the Father as a spring of life begetting the Son like a river and the Holy Ghost like a sea, for the spring and the river and the sea are all one nature. Think of the Father as a root, of the Son as a branch, and of the Spirit as a fruit, for the substance in these three is one. The Father is a sun with the Son as rays and the Holy Ghost as heat. The Holy Trinity transcends by far every similitude and figure. So, when you hear of an offspring of the Father, do not think of a corporeal offspring. And when you hear that there is a Word, do not suppose him to be a corporeal word. And when you hear of the Spirit of God, do not think of wind and breath. Rather, hold your persuasion with a simple faith alone. For the concept of the Creator is arrived at by analogy from his creatures.
