The mystery of the Most Holy Trinity is the central mystery of Christian faith and life. It is the mystery of God's self. It is therefore the source of all the other mysteries of faith, the light that enlightens them. It is the most fundamental and essential teaching in the hierarchy of the truths of faith. The whole history of salvation is identical with the history of the way and the means by which the one true God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, reveals God-self to humanity (Catechism, 234).
