Quote of the Day – 12 June

St John Damascene (675-749) – Doctor of the Church on the Holy Trinity

“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 sea are all one nature.  
Think of the Father as a root
and of the Son as a branch
and 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 Spirit as heat.”

ST JOHN DAMASCENE ON THE HOLY TRINITY
