Trinity

I have to get my mind off ‘Two Cows’ jokes…although here’s the best one:  You have one cow, that is really three cows in one….

The Two Trinities – Bartolome Esteban Murillo

THE TRINITY.

   O blessed glorious Trinity,  
Bones to philosophy, but milk to faith,  
   Which, as wise serpents, diversely  
Most slipperiness, yet most entanglings hath,  
              As you distinguish’d, undistinct,  
              By power, love, knowledge be,  
Give me a such self different instinct,  
Of these let all me elemented be,  
Of power, to love, to know you unnumbered three.  

from John Donne, A  Litany
