Sunday of the Holy Trinity, Part II

Athanasian Creed, Part II

For there is one person of the Father,
another of the Son,
and another of the Holy Spirit.

But the Godhead of the Father,
of the Son,
and of the Holy Spirit
is all one,
the glory equal,
the majesty coeternal.

Such as the Father is,
such is the Son,
and such is the Holy Spirit.

The Father uncreated,
the Son uncreated,
and the Holy Spirit uncreated.

The Father incomprehensible,
the Son incomprehensible,
and the Holy Spirit incomprehensible.

The Father eternal,
the Son eternal,
and the Holy Spirit eternal.

And yet they are not three eternals
but one eternal.

As also there are not three uncreated
nor three incomprehensible,
but one uncreated
and one incomprehensible.

"Holy, Holy, Holy" in Greek
